Be careful where you drive your car

This me descending from the summit of Mount Coree on Thursday (the ACT's 3rd highest mountain at 4662 feet) after about 60kms of off road driving in the Brindebella Mountains. It was a cold and blustery day at the summit - in cloud. Wheel placement critical on this track.



NOTE: I might add that about an hour later I popped a piston and was taken back into Canberra on the back of a truck! It will be an expensive engine rebuild. Cause unknown at this stage.

Re: Be careful where you drive your car

It looks like a small challenge & you have to be careful you don't end up like this.

And then the rescuer has to be careful too.

@ Terry -NOTE: I might add that about an hour later I popped a piston and was taken back into Canberra on the back of a truck! It will be an expensive engine rebuild. Cause unknown at this stage.

I suspect the car crapped out due to fear. I was nearly filling my boots just looking.

Re: Be careful where you drive your car

Sounds like a manufacturing fault, good idea to check on recalls.

That is what I call off road, bet you enjoyed every minute? Just a question though, why didn't you walk up?

Re: Be careful where you drive your car

Sorry to hear of the very unusual popped piston, Terry. The 4WD track takes me back to my own bush-bashing days in a Nissan Patrol. You are obviously enjoying the off road challenge.

Re: Be careful where you drive your car

Oh Dear! Sorry to hear this story Terry!
We are doing a bit of this driving at the moment.
That's a great photo - I have often ducked out in front trying to get such a shot so know it is not as easy as you have made it look.

Photos do not really show just how difficult this can be.
