Bogged with no hope of getting out


Here is my 07 TI bogged in the south of WA.

3 hours later and a $100 to the tow truck driver and I finally got out.....

A couple of the water that got inside the car, We had drained out about half by this stage.

Lesson's learnt:

1. Dont go offroad alone.
2. Dont try and go through sand and mud on H/T tyres.
3. Get a portable whinch.
4. Dont always follow the Sat Nav for directions.
5. Listen to the MRS when she says "you prob wont make it through that"
6. Follow the advice on the sign just before the bog hole that says "Do not attempt to cross this bog hole EVEN IN A 4X4."

I hope you all enjoy.....

Point 6 would probably have turned me around Brenton - the Mrs. well, she always thinks she right - and so do I - so that wouldn't have stopped me either.

Whereabouts South of Perth is it Brenton?

Naff,

It was between Denmark and Walpole, or to be more specific about 13 Kms east of Walpole on what my sat nav said was tingle east road.

I'm pretty sure that bog hole gives the tow truck guy in Walpole quite a bit of bussiness.

Yeah it about 4 and a half hours if you go via Albany.......

The funny thing was I was not even trying to go 4x4 driving I was trying to get to a lookout point and followed the directions on my sat nav....
