Jeep Fight Club

Rodgebone from AusJeepOffRoad decided that an event like "Jeep Fight Club" was in order. So, we gathered the troops and headed off to the powerlines. It was a pretty wet and wild day but lots of fun was had. Many pictures and videos below - my camera ran out of batteries about 3/4 of the way through. Gathering in Midland. Airing down near Sawyers Valley. Headed up the first climb. A short stop while trying to find Murray... Flex text! Off to the next challenge. We found another group who had drowned a surf. Didn't appear to be hydro-locked but could well have bent some conrods and the diesel pump was playing up. I hung around with the Surf to lend them some tools while the rest of the crew wandered down the track. By the time I got there they'd found something more interesting to do... The first challenge - tug of war! The next challenge - a small water crossing and then up a hill that has defeated me before. And defeats me again. Need a lift or bigger tyres to get the transfer case bash plate up off the ground about half an inch. D'oh! Gnarly descent time... Some videos of the playpen: We took some time out to watch some other randoms tackle the obstacles. A bit of a play in the mud pit. Onto the next event... A Surf from another group tried out the climb we were on with not-so-good results - we think he stripped a few splines from his front axle. Listen for the snapping noise at the end of the video - it isn't really obvious but it was very loud in person. Just after this video (as I ran out of battery power), Hemijeepy slashed a tyre. Damn... Lots more stuff at the AusJeepOffRoad site. Just search for "Jeep Fight Club".
