    GoPro is setup ready but I think it might be too dark by the time he gets here, fingers crossed I at least get a good video out of it.

    I put a few videos up on my Instagram showing where it’s stuck - http://www.instagram.com/tab.travels/

    I’m out! Engine management and traction control lights are on and it’s in limp home mode (which I now realise is also why it wouldn’t drive out when it should have). No video of the recovery unfortunately, it was pitch black by the time I got out.

    I’ve got a gap tool on me so I’ll plug it in tomorrow and hopefully it’s something I can sort out and carry on my journey (no more off-roading though!)

    Thanks to all who responded - I’ve learnt many lessons and been humbled.

    Live and learn. I highly recommend having a Tirfor winch in the back if going off road. TU16 or above. Some sort of anchor and tree huggers would be good too.

    I asked the wife if she fancied a trip to France, she said yes.

    When I said, in the Landy, she told me to start digging a grave
