    My people asked me to inform Funsters that they will no longer have the excitement and thrills of squeezing their vans through the gap in the two Eucalyptus trees at the entrance to the haven of peace and quiet that is Quinta Majay...

    This thrill has been experienced by this short list of Funsters whose names will now go down in the historic QMJ Hall Of Fame...

    JJ
    Frankie
    Roger
    Douglas
    Rex and Marie
    Jim, Sian and Katie
    Nigel and Pam

    The list cannot grow longer (unless I have forgotten anyone) as yesterday the two trees at the entrance were reduced to one...

    Anyone want any firewood?

    JJ :Cool:

    The demands of video production meant I was unable to attend the felling but pictures will be posted as soon as I have clearance...

    As for woosey front wheel driven vehicles I guess that depends on a combination of the loading of the vehicle in question... the track conditions and the skill of the driver...:Wink:

    Our glorious leader (may his name be praised) had no difficulty...

    He's chopped it down because he realised his "little sis" would never visit again if it was still standing - far too traumatic getting out of there after 3 days of monsoon!!:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Never thought I'd hear you complain about the wet. You need webbed feet for Windy Harbour don't you?
