Needs proper pegs like Mick's ones. Can also be used to steady up trees in case of gales.

Gee that hoochie looks suspect, was it water proof?

the hoochie itself is 100% water proof!

As I remember it fell down quite easily something to do with the hutchie cord.

the cord was OK but operator error on tying the knots - maybe a certain Mk3/Mk4 up grade owner will say different

Hmmmm,

I think a retest at Corowa 17 will put the matter to bed  :)

Plenty of time to practice Scott.   8)

A slanderous allegation....I must have my honour.
*slap* with large gauntlet.......made of steel and filled with stones.
That hoochie with as much above protection as it had, was really let down by the ingenuity of the owner who insisted in water proofing the base, to the point one of two things happened.
1) he created a pool for himself
2) the theory of putting a sleeping mans hand in water induces certain automatic bladder responses.

Either way the outcome was that FFRMAN wet his bed......there, I've said it. You're a bed wetter.

 Come on Aussie Greg,

A bloke like FFRMAN would have his blow ups up and ready. No chance of drowning with those bad boys.

Hi All
I have worked out what caused the Bed Wetting episode, it was the cheap nasty beer that Scott was consuming. Next year drink a quality beverage like XXXX. I drink it and I don't have any problems in the area of concern.

OK you blokes this is getting way off track (self inflicted), and Rod it was not bed wetting it was the bed getting wet - there is a not to subtle difference

anyway what's wrong with 150 lashes when out field with the guys???? :o

What I really want is a photo of XY Falcon utes in service - gotta be some out there!



this is what I'm bringing next year

Great news Scott. It looks like there is some HT Holden wagons in the rear of the photo and a Leyland truck in the foreground. Anyone know if any of these survive?
