Despite threatening rain, we ducked up the Sunshine Coast for a bit of 4WDing in and around the Cooloola Coast (just above Noosa) and some camping at Lake Cootharaba.
Saturday was spent tooling around state forests and lunching in the rain in National Parks. Highlight of the day... I got to drive for about 30 minutes off road... and under the motivation of learning through doing, Husband-person instructed me to drive THROUGHT a huge puddle, without either of us getting out to check the depth, mud consistency etc etc. You guessed it, I got bogged.
All credit to the Landrover door seals - we had water more than 1/2 up the wheels, defintely over the door edges, and no water got into the car. Poor Husband-person had to climb out the window, and he and Jeremy effected a speedy recovery with a snatch strap.
Lesson for the day: NEVER EVER turn your car off if the exhaust pipe is under water... diesel and water in the engine is not a good combination.
Sunday was a relaxed affair, spent willing the tent to dry (after showers the previous night) and then dropping into Mooloolaba for fish and chips on the way home (who knew you could get marinated grilled tuna steaks at a fish and chip shop).
Despite the rain, my new and exciting head cold, the garage filled wtih drying camping equipment and the mossie bites, a good time was had by all!
