Thought you were on the N1 Heksie :hmz: . I can "see" how you steer the broom in the direction you were looking at, instead of looking where you were going to :roll: :roll: . Hope you had a great time and waiting for the feedback :whistle: .

But it does look as I was not missed by the great team. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:


Who says you weren't missed, Scips? I for one was looking forward to meeting you, and was quite disappointed when Heksie and Wendy told me you wouldn't be there.

From now on that spot on the causeway is going to be referred to as "Heksies spot" :slap: :tongue:

Thankfully it all ended well, hope your little car did not hurt its tummy too much!

Ok guys all jokes aside!!!!
Those that know me are aware that I like to get up close and personal with animals and mother nature so I do find myself sometimes a bit offroad-Wendy can definitely add to that comment :thumbs_up:

And what happened on that causeway... Well... You see... :think:
I was waiting for my dear friend Wendy and after a while started to get worried that a wild animal has pounced on her Jimny and taken her hostage. So being a good friend I decided to backtrack and go search for her! I reversed and felt that a eety beety rock was stopping me from going in a backwards motion so I put pedal to the metal and went of the smallish rock which turned out to be the side of the causeway :hmz: now what was it doing there? Now I think it is wise to say that a Fiat is not a 4x4 :w:

Heksie, I have driven that causeway many times and going over it backwards is as easy as forwards, :hmz: how in the world......? Oh, nevermind :shock: :whistle:
