Default Not a Gypsy but..

Had taken my samurai over the weekend on of the forest tracks around here. The samurai performed like a star and exceeded everyones expectation including my mates in a cherokee. It went more places than the jeep and rescued the jeep once . The guys in the jeep are really impressed and looking for a sammy already.Nonethless the jeep was well done. But the hilux was mean as.

Would love to come and offroad with you guys when I am thr next time. Till then I would like to share the fun on WWW

These are superb pictures. You made my day -- love the pictures, the terrain and the SWB Samurai. I wish it were available here.

Looks like a very slushy terrain. I know that in real it would have been xxx times more difficult than one can imagine in the pictures.

PS: The one with the wheels on fallen tree is awesome. I am assuming that the back soil in this post and one of your earlier posts is the volcanic ash remains.

Excellent MC. Must have been one hell of a drive. The toyota in the pic was nice to look at. I knew many will confuse the samurai for a gypsy
