Went to Landcruiser Parks Australia Day Fun Weekend.....
here's a copy of what i typed on our suzuki forum....
Saturday morning, feeling like crap from all the alcomahol sneaky forced me to drink the night before, we took off to the pig pen for a test drive and broke a front spring on the first bump, so we returned to camp. Matt (cut4b) arrived later and offered a set of springs he had at his house in Gympie, so i went for the 1 1/2 hour drive down through Mt Buggery / Imbil/ Gympie, then back again, installed the spring and by that time we had to head off to the night hill drags, which was pretty impressive to see lots of crazy people going flat out in V8s up a hil out of control, well it looked like that anyway. And it must have been the biggest gathering of rednecks in the crowd for Qld that day. Just joking, 99% of the people were very nice. It's amazing how people think they can go flat out down the road at night with people everywhere and think that's ok?
Sunday came and we were off to Coopers Stadium, skinnyman went navi for cut4b and sneakyzook from here volunteered to be my victom, i mean navi. Navis werent required but it sounded like fun. Unfortunatley we were second last on the running order so had to wait ages.
There was 5 stages held throughout the day, using different tracks and different distances. Some were very rough but we had a blast and had quite a few close calls, i'm sure we spent most of the time on one wheel. Sneaky was very good as a navi providing great motivation, with the GO GO GO, BRAKE!!! SHIIIIT!! GO GO GO!! and we were pissing ourselves laughing for most of the tracks. We were a but slow on the uphills as the carby spluttered a bit on the bumps but we completed all the stages. The last stage the front shocks finally gave out and we lost a bit of control with the bouncing so we backed off and cruised to the finish. Most of the stages were out of sight to spectators and we were driving around in the middle of no where with no one around at all.
cut4b and skinnyman slammed in to a hidden ditch at 300ks (possibly slower) an hour and mashed up the front end a bit, bent up both springs and the tyres pushed the side guards out. So that was the end of their day.
Over all it was an awesome weekend and i had a ball with plenty of laughs in and off the tracks.
