Car Park Problems

Post by kiwi »

Well yesterday went up to my favourite wintery hangout and despite icey patches on the road no problems until I hit the cra park which I should say is on a bit of a incline.

After finding out the black shiney surface was infact bullet proof black ice I elected a bit of traction control (aka sliding) into a parking bay which would be a bit safer. Parking beside a vehicle that has not been stationary for at least 30 minutes is not the best place to be on black ice, they tend to move as the tyres cool.

Well I found out that even with this knowledge it still gets the smart arse in the BX :oops:

I was sure I was closer to that white line than that :?

Ah now that bit of snow was not pushed by my parking :lol: Just glad the Minibus beside me had been parked up the night before. btw notice the snow falling.

This from Monday after spending a day in the sunshine this was the boarder of the murk and rain I went home to just 2 km from where I had parked.

Dunno what it is about that BX but a lot of people say that. Great seeing the faces on a smug 4wd Panzar tank driver drop when I raise the suspension just to get over a obstacle 8)

Incidentally where I am parked was part of the Lord of the Rings film set :wink: I think last summer was the first year they did not milk that knowledge with signage. That pile of rocks behind me was in the film not sure where exactly but its in there apparently.
