Hi,

thanks for the comments!

It was a beautiful sunny day!

We went to Logan Pine Forest, very close to Brisbane. I love this place. Mud, ruts, rocks. It offers the whole offroad program :)

We wanted to go the main Powerline track first, until I discovered a turn into a new undiscovered (by us) area. Looked pretty rocky. It was best decision to turn in there. The track is so awesome. Medium level, very rocky. We did about 1/4 of the that track and turned back, because it was getting late! We are looking forward to go back and try to do the whole track next time.

On the way back, we had some small trouble. Unfortunately my camera batteries were dead. There was a big mud place. I took the middle line, which was not the best choice. It was so deep that it covered half of my doors (and I am pretty high). But I made it through. I hoped my mate was not going to take the same path, but he did. Fortunately he got stuck before he even got into the hole. Otherwise I think he would get mud into his air intake and maybe kill the engine. So luck in back luck :D I went back through the mud on one other path and pulled him out. His Jeep (the red JK) was making noises afterwards, but I assume it was because of mud, we couldn't find anything. It was ok after driving. But his rear right tyres was loosing Air between the rim and tire. We noticed it, because there was water on it and bubbles came out. So we went to next petrol station and put his spare on.

Overall great trip with lots of fun!

Great video Kam. Looks like your Jeep handled everything easily.

That area has something for everyone. Mud, rocks, hill climbs.

Did the guy with the red shorty get any mud inside when he was stuck in the hole? You seemed to walk through in your Jeep, what do you think the difference was?

The last mud hole is not on the video. Even I had to rev up to get through, but made it. He got stuck before he even got in to the deepest point. He was sitting on his belly. So very lucky I guess. No mud inside the Jeep.

Difference between are obviously the mods. He is stock with ARB bullbar and winch. I am sitting on 35s with 2.5 AEV lift and disconnects. Makes a big difference.

The whole video was shot with small Sony Action Cam. Just got it last week and very happy with it.
