Land Rover - VS - Powerstroke!

What a thrill - last night, drove out to "the cove" to concentrate on work a little - as I drove up - there is a Land Rover Discovery - angled down towards the Bay, all 4 just a spinning!

The cove is this little "cove" at the bay - maybe 500 yards long max. Just a little sandy beach used to be a marina but a huricane in the 50's filled it all in with sand.

Since then - its one of those "out fo the way" places to drop the kayaks, relax - not alot of attention.

Well, I eased the Ford down the sand road. Locked my hubs and pulled up about 20' to his nose. I stepped out just a laughing! I couldnt help it. Poor guy - he was stuffing logs, boards, driftwood, everything he could find under those Land Rover highway tires - he was burried.

I offered him a tug - he gladly accepted. I noticed he had a new paper tag on the front! He just bought his Disco - and burried it in the sand!

Hooked a chain, locked the front end, dropped her in reverse and started to pull. Yanked him out of the sand better then I thought I would!

Old Powerstroke showed up that Disco!
