a stupid idea

Post by sheps » Fri Jun 15, 2012 3:05 pm

last week i decided i wanted to try beach fishing for aussie salmon with a few fellow suzuki nut mates so
i stole my wifes flash suzuki and drove to coffin bay :D

hit a roo 50km into the trip but otherwise was a fast boring drive.

Image

Image

the national parks around coffins have some great scenery and the wheeling is a heap of fun.

Image

Image

the wifes GV still has the heart of a 4wd Suzuki and i was able to make it go where ever the modified cars went.

only got bogged once
Image

it even handled rock steps ok

Image

it was the coldest i have ever been, there was even ice on my mozzie dome. oh and
for future reference, mozzie domes are worse then useless in the cold

my drinking chair even froze solid

Image

i even caught a few fish

Image

i drove home non stop and arrived last night, off to the daly later today for a real fish.
6500km in 8 days, freezing cold but still a great trip however next time i will take my sierra
and show the southerners how to wheel

Great trip, thanks for the post. I think that I would not have the capability to post after stealing my wife's car and taking it on sand like that. I would be very sore and sory. Well done.

Decided that the wife's car needed a bit more power for overtaking so bought a nitrous kit for it

Looks like Almonta beach.

Spent many a holiday (in fact every bl..dy holiday in the 70"s & early 80"s) at Coffins. Folks have a shack (now home) at bottom of hill as enter Coffins. Right inbetween all those mansions.
Some fond memories.
