Felix is a daring mud devil

Well, when you give a new toy in our hands, we want to try it, test it out. So we took Felix our Bluetooth enabled LaRo Lightweight into the Normandy forests. Simple mission: go and dive it into the muddy roads till it gets stuck. Yep, that way we could check out our 24 volt 5 ton winch.

So all excited we floored the jeep into the most obscure corners of the woods de Bretonne and the steep slopes of the Seine estuary. We jumped over tree trunks. We splashed through water. We did see an abandoned Toyota buried in a muddy field. We dived into mud pools that could hide a camel. We tractored through prairies. We pushes fences. We ploughed through ditches. We ripped of branches.

We had lots and lots of fun, sore bums and bruises. But we could not get the Lightweight stuck. Sigh. There will be other times!

  1. We just call it beer. actualy, the Eburons invented it when UK-people were still living in caves. And we invented chips. And the saxophone…

  2. We Brits do indeed love chips with chips. And chips with pasta. And chips with pizza. And chips with salad. And chips with anything really. We love chips.

    And I think the expression ‘real ale’ was invented here, which says it all, really.

  3. Blue Man Groove. Good idea. Not sure if we should expose Vince to this. It’s a rough drink, suitable for lumberjacks and consultants. Vince is a TV star….

  4. On second thoughts… mayble we’ll bring some panache. Think REAL beer from Belgium might be a challenge for UK people.

  5. Man man man… you are like the two old Muppet guys…. 🙂
    Surfinator: we are BELGIANS we NEVER run out of beer (what’s the point?)

  6. Great stuff. Alan and I are next 4×4-ing in Wales on the 21st August. I’ll send you a map reference and we will look forward to seeing you and Felix there. We’ll have a tow rope so you don’t need to worry that you won’t get home.

  7. Vince, I think that is a wonderful idea… but where is Alan going to find a 4×4 on short notice? 🙂
    But, yes, by all means… let’s have a day or so of fun in some muddy woods. we’ll bring beer.

  8. “We did see an abandoned Toyota buried in a muddy field.”

    It wasn’t abandoned. It was parked there ready to help recover Land Rovers when they got stuck.
