Landy Stuck - big trip - landy stuck - playing in mud


Listing landy... up to the axles...

...needs winching

December 11 2001

After entering Guatemala at Melchor we decided to head north towards Dos Lagunas via the Mayan ruins of Yaloch, then on to El Mirador near the Mexican border. During the second winching session in one particularly muddy section, some forest workers came by in their tiny lightweight Suzuki. They told us that the track ahead was very boggy and winching would be on the cards for a long time (about 2 more days). After helping hands pushed the landy free, we decided on discretion for once and turned around, unknowingly leaving the winch handle in the mud. To cap off the unsuccessful episode B then dinged the landy into an unsuspecting tree.
