4WD Training - Wilbinga   
November 18, 2007

4WD Training in the Wilbinga Dunes

Geoff Couper (aka Froggy to those in the know) from Ultimate 4WD Training invited me along on his sand training course. I had recommended Froggy to Debbie (otherwise know as Mischif on the Jeep forum) - she was there today with a bunch of other great people including some tourists from Holland who had just purchased a HJ60 four days ago to go touring. Laz and Bronky from WC4x4 were also assisting. It was great to catch up with Bronky and also to finally meet Laz. Anyway, we met up at the Tenth Light Horse and proceeded from there. No more commentary from me - just some pictures and various videos. Everyone on the course tried just about every challenge with gusto. It was a great day out.

Not one of our group - note the rear wheel in the air - oops - Froggy kept training while Laz and I did the recovery
Next climb - nearly there!
