Yes a cracking little video, like the back somersault from the top of the van into the snow!

DemonAV, thanks for sharing. It was wonderful to see you all having a great time. I imagine you waited for the weather to improve before you had your meet, didn't you?!

OMG

absolute top guys =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

most of us would be worrying that our bongo is in that temperature and snow

they would laugh their backsides of at us for being so pompus

you know stiff upper lip and all that - especially whilst were trying to keep the dust off never mind trying to plough through 2 ft of snow and ice

lmao - a few inches of snow on some bongos - and we say we are snowed in :lol: :lol:

very cool top guys 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

We waited 21 February. Mazdafriendee.ru was founded 21.02.2005. Weather is second :-) But temperature was -15 .

Beat me to it. I could not fail but notice how the Delica spent its day acting as a Bongo recovery vehicle (when it was not just showing off its prowess in the snow - oh the shame, the shame, the utter humiliation). Hellen will need medication to get to sleep tonight (me too probably) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Superb action DemonAV =D> =D> =D> You Russian owners show us the way home when it comes to Doing it Large 8)

Wow! Superb video.

The Delicia looked useful, I shall view them with more respect in future, I always thought of them as toys.

And boy were they having fun, makes our winter meets look tame. Congrats to the Russians.
