Gunn Point road disaster

Post by pocketfish » Sat Mar 15, 2014 3:11 pm

Over corrected a bit and lost her, did a couple of fishies before I applied the brakes which spun me round 180 degrees, bumped up against one of the spoon drain mounds and over she goes, bummer. Nothing damaged except the car and maybe my pride a little. Still drove her home afterwards.

No boat, just me, driving around the place looking for a fish to catch.

Just pick up a body from the wreckers, and drop it onto the chassis., or, turn it into a rag top.
Great you got out of that ok. :mrgreen:
" YOUTH is a GIFT "
"AGE is an ART "
"Doesn't mean you get any smarter..just wrinkled and cracked".

"No angler watches nature in a passive way...He enters into its very existence." (John Bailey...Reflections on a Waters Edge)

"Govern a Family as you would catch a small fish....Very Gently." (Chinese Proverb)

"Only those become weary of angling who bring nothing to it but the idea of catching fish." (Rafael Sabatini...1857-1950)

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.

Travelled the Gunn Point Road today.

Its been torn up and in need of a fix up. The road is solid but it's torn up in places (a lot of places). We were over taken by some dude who couldn't wait as a few cars and trailers ahead navigated a tricky stretch. All I could see was a 60 HP Four Stroke Suzuki getting the hell flogged out of it. No idea some people. :banghead:

Glad you are ok
yeah the lux are great until you put a big lift kit on them. I remember seeing many either fully rolled or on their sides on the sand dunes in NSW

I did gun point Sunday, all good during the day, but on the way home at light I hit a spot spot at 80k 's, did a few fishies, I was lucky, my cars short wheel base and lifted, I would have been close to rolling.
