Stuck in the mud
It’s funny the batteries at our solar sites only seem to need replacing after periods of prolonged bad weather.
This unfortunately means the driving conditions are less than perfect.
This is the nineth straight say of rain and the track up to one of our sites was so wet it instantly turned to mud.
We have three Navaras which are a good all round vehicle, but what they gain in on-road comfort they loose in off road ability.
It wasn’t long before the mixed terrain tyres were covered in mud and completely lost traction, I had a set of MaxTrax, which worked half a dozen times but wasn’t good enough to get me all the way up the hill.
Fortunately the land owner is top bloke and came up with his tractor, he basically dragged the vehicle to the top of the mountain, batteries and all.
