|Our favourite bit of muddy hill has some big ruts right next to quite a deep hole. We're a tad worried about sliding into it when it's wet, so decided to shovel some gravel onto it.
There's a ton of gravel and a wheelbarrow or a crane. We chose the crane.
We actually got it onto the inner springs. It took a huge amount of cable before the back stopped dropping and bag lifted. But lift it did.
|Then we drove up to the top. The angle was steep enough to ground the bag, and turn it into a very effective anchor, so we rearranged and drove up, no problem.
Backed it round and got the shovels out. Very good.
|A big fencepost, in an annoying place? watch the mog do battle with it (5mb WMV) and win.|
|Then we get to drag it out and over to the fire.
|Then we had to go and play round the farm. Great fun, if getting a bit tame now (42Km in 5 acres!).|
|Off to VOSA for a Road Worthiness test - not quite an MOT (we're waiting for paperwork) but testing the same things. They seemed to love it, we had 5 of them looking at it at one point.
It passed, and we got a few funny looks off people on the way as well.
|We're getting more inventive with the farm now. Next time, I shall try and reverse down the steps, if it doesn't fall over, I may try driving up them.|
|I think it's at about 25 degrees here - it will go to about 40 before tipping, possibly more for ours, as it has no weight up top.|
