Default Chapka 2018

Went for the annual trip to Auvergne, France, and met up with friends and new people. Its always a good moment as we eat well, have good laughs and find some new tracks. We all sleep in our tents even if its raining, like it did this year...

We had to build a "bridge".

it is indeed seems easy but cool. im thinking now that those heavy but famous 4wd cars must put so much more work to pass those same spots and because they try so hard they kinda look cool because they slide all over and have hard time. all because they weight a lot and thats their main problem. you must compensate that with so much power and grip to go anywhere with big 4wd. not so much problem with light subaru.
p.s. i found more videos there , they pretty cool

I've read that you are much better off putting logs at right angles to the car if you are doing this sort of thing, much less risk of the logs spiking the car if they snap or the tyre flicks them up.

Which kinda makes sense...

That's right but we were lazy !

Two days later we went back with more big 4x4's and built it the right way
