    im not sure asking people to drag vehicles off lanes at this time of year is a good idea, unless they are highly experienced with the correct gear
    much better to pay a local farmer if possible,they have the experience and kit

    Are the other vehicles still stranded as well?

    Are the FB contacts returning in the morning?

    Did @Pillar and @Grem get hold of you?

    I have to say. Thats the first. And last time i go there blind without knowing the full sp. That was totally ****ing dangerous. Its not even a lane lucky a top bloke with a pajero with winch and my mate with his equipment for racing came down as i nearly lost my truck down a slippery bankment .but thanks to all including me. Planning and gentle recovery with both winches and ground anchors we got both landies off as for the honda crv. Well youll need a 4 wheel drive tractor when the weather gets better.

    I would be a complete arse if I didn't. ....I just hope I get to return the favour
    As Alan said, his mate was absolutely fantastic. I would definitely say that he saved the day

    I'm home safely too. It a shame we had to leave the CR-V where it was.
    Bit of a trial really. I'll post my pics tomorrow, just want a cuppa right now
    What do you mean "we"?
    I thought that if a CR-V could go there, so could a Landy. Getting there was the easy bit .... relatively.

    Yeah, even the bits that were supposed to be dry, like the brush at the sided of the "track" was wet. My ankle held up OK until I got home and got out of the Disco.
    My God, it was a tad painful and over I went. Managed to pull my self upright and the bloke next door happened to see me and loaned my one of his crutches.
    So, it's Pain killers, Coffee and some Arnica rub before I turn in.

    At least people are safe. Doesn't look much from the picture, and looks like he at least fell off the road the right side or it might have been a different situation.
