Now to be fair, this wasn't my fault...strictly speaking...

I looked at the bog, and thought ' nope!' - and was actually attempting to turn around and find a parking space that didn't resemble a bog...'it'll be fine if i just 3 point turn...in/out, no getting bogged down...'

So anyway, I'm going nowhere, wheels spinning...I call for help from the staff (was at Gullivers land) The cavalry arrive (average age, 14) and they say, nonchalantly 'oh, you're the third car to get stuck exactly here in the last 2 days...'

:mad:mad:mad

It didn't occur to you einsteins to maybe close off this area of parking..?

Eventually got towed out (by a focus :embarrassed) and parked somewhere more civilised.

So, what is to be learned from this?

1: RWD and power is shite in deep mud.
2. I can't drive for shit.
3. If you turn off your traction control and nail it, you can cover 7 Gullivers Land employees in mud, literally from head to toe, in under 3 seconds. I tried to take photos of them, but I was laughing too hard.

I did summat similar with an Escort there Doggy but when I got stuck we had to go and get her Dad to go and pull me out!! A pair of SERIOUSLY red faces that night. Think she must have been one of the most unlucky women in the world the amount of red and near miss red faces we had!!! :rofl
