I don't suppose my Patrol/Sani "hybrid" stuck in my driveway with busted diesel pump will qualify. Besides, the picture is just utterly boring. But it does seem to prove that the Nissan can get stuck, just not offroad.

4 WOMEN ON PATROL

My wife decided to have a “women only holiday”….. :think:

So, ... two days ago she took friends and family + the PATROL on a trip to the Sterksfontain Dam / Freestate.
One needs to point out that the 4x4 Thing is not her Thing and that she has never touched any of the 4x4 gears in the PATROL. :rolleyes:

Now.... I just got a Whats App message saying…… "Just rescued a Landrover".

Apparently the weather started to turn nasty and the LR Driver wanted to pull out a boat before getting hit by the incoming storm. In the panic…. He went in a little bit too far.. too deep. :helpsign:

Lucky for him the 4 girls were busy PATROL-ling the shores, saw him and came to his rescue.

Well done girls :clap:

That Land Rover was pulled out by a Patrol and not a winch.
