Training Day

Froggy from Ultimate 4WD Training invited my out for the second day of his weekend training session. My parents were out for the weekend with him along with Lucas (in a TJ Wrangler) and Andrew (in a JK Wrangler Unlimited). Pera and Bronky were also along for the ride. We met at the lakes and headed into the Wandoo area.

Our lunch stop was just down the road with a small ramp-over test for those who were up for it.

After lunch there were a few small challenges on the track.

Our next stop had a nicely rutted track. Picking the right line was crucial. As I headed back to get my car, Mum was moving it up for me so I let her drive through, which she did reluctantly but without any issues - diff locks and sway bar disconnects are a good thing.

I had a great day out - thanks, Froggy.
