    NN Trip report:
    Wow, it was one great adventure day out! 20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley smile

    Took NPP swimming is deeper part of Harro river, one heart wrenching moment when we got bogged down, and the ramp at far end was at an angle and rather soft so cross axle digging ensued! Somehow npp didn't shut down there and with a bit of struggle, it came out by itself in reverse, well Sam and his friend were standing on rear bumper and jumping up n down for traction. At the time we already had 3 inch of standing water inside in the foot well, don't know where that came in from! 20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley tongue out20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley embarassed

    A bit later the engine started spluttering and misfiring and than shut down, and than wouldn't start n cranking was laboured and made strange noises, and than a spark from battery terminal and than smoke. Lots of water on top of battery and air filter cover, opened up the cover and plenty water inside and filter was all dripping water! Reminded me a bit of Rohtas Rally. Somehow the silicon seals around intake pipe from snorkle had breached and it sucked in plenty water!

    After some tense moments of cleaning up/ drying and thoughts of being towed back all the way back to isloo, worked out there was lots of water ingress in fuses next to battery and also the battery terminal needed re-tighting. Imtiaz kindly went to nearby petrol station to get high pressure air blown to air filter to help dryout. Eventually TB45S came back to life but with intermittently rough idle and losing power once or twice, but seems overall the engine survived!

    Although we managed back without help, it still needs a visit to the doctor! 20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley tongue out Oh and the front mudflap part ripping and front under bumper plastic shield ripping off when we were visiously spinning wheels stuck in river were just minor incidents20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley wink

    Apart from NPP, Nadeem Bhai's Jero's ATF cooler rubber pipe decided to split up and leak all the oil out when we were attempting this climb, the one you see in which one front tyre high in air, and we lost all drive!20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley surprised. Had to be towed partly by NPP and than the pipe was changed and ATF poured in and it was all good!

    Yasir did try to throw his Suzuki sideways from the mountain, but luckily was stopped in time! 20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley sealed

    The river side lunch arranged by Imtiaz and the sweet by BilalZ were yummy! Afterwards many had proper dip in the river and later actually dozed on the river bank in the beautiful afternoon sun while the Jero repair was taking place.

    Many thnx to all who came for their wonderful company and absolutely great fun. The deserters I will deal with later! 20140413 IJC offroading n fun day out at Harro River - smiley wink

    Nomi, it was great fun, The plan was to get to the area identified on google earth, where there were plenty offroading oppurtunities, but the first place we tried to cross Harro river which looked easy but we found out that it was much deeper and soaked NPP completely, and after that no one wanted to try crossing from there. Orange, surprisingly, was in no mood of killing his newly acquired Vigo. The rest said, lets find a easier place to go across, but than NPP spluttered and shut down, took 20+ minutes to get going again. Than we lost our way trying to find the track. Than at another crossing point Imtiaz got stuck, had to be towed out with tandem pulling. That was where BilalZ showed his DJI phantom flying skill................errrr not................ by banging into trees, and than crash bang landing, luckily, it survived! Than we evetually got to the place where there were plenty oppertunities for proper-offroading, we did a couple of tracks and than the Jero's ATF issue happened, and so we wanted to tow it to somewhere to get it sorted as well.

    Anyway, it was almost 1pm by than, and everyone was saying Biryani, biryani, biryani, so we we found a nice shade of M1 motoway over Harro river, and after lunch, Yasir nadeem bhai and Sam were sorting the Jero + had to go n get 5-6 litre ATF, as all had leaked out. Than one by one people started dipping and swimming n river. Orange refused to get in water, but Imtiaz, Sam and another friend took no notice, picked him up threw him in water. It was great fun. Just imagine a hearty lunch, cool breeze, than cool dip in beautiful flowing water and afterwards lying on the rocks on the side in the beautiful afternoon sun. I am dozing almost thinking about it!

    We had though initially of maybe going back for more offroading, but everyone was too lazy n chilled by than, so we headed back via GT road, stopping over for a nice hot tea break!
    Doc sb,

    I completely forgot to re-calibrate Phantom's GPS it was a few seconds job. I was asked this question by the guy who looked at it today and that's when it came to my mind that i forgot to do that and this is why it was going wayward.
