Ahuroa - Fund Raiser - November 2015

Ahuroa: Volunteer Fire Brigade fundraiser weekend - 14/15 November 2015

Yet another great event put on by the Rodney Off Road Club, fundraising for the Ahuroa Volunteer Fire Brigade... These guys managed to wrangle 80 trucks and a couple of hundred people, feeding, entertaining  and guiding them over several hundred hectares of spectacular  farmland with nary a glitch in sight. 

Pig Farm August 2015

A record run in about 2.5 hours! Just five of us ripped through the tracks; that's not say we had any 'stoppages' ! Even in the first 500m of the track we all had grief. Shaun give us some fun moments diving into water that even Jacques Cousteau would have baulked at!


Maratoto - March 2015

Maratoto - March 2015 - from Ray

key words:  cyclone pam, category 5 , maratoto, landrover, mud!

We had 4 trucks initially.   But by the time I had mucked about figuring whether  to go ahead we were down to two .  Craig in his new Disco 1 Tdi with recently fitted side under and front protection and the my white open ( to the weather and rain)  Defender.
