Gura Raului - Sibiu (Romania)

Last week-end (the 1st of May) we have celebrated the Labour Day in our way: working and wheeling.
We went near Sibiu (a very nice city in the centre of Romania), together with my wife's coleagues for planting trees.
It was a volunteer action, organised by the company where she works and the local authorities, for planting trees on a hill that was affected by a storm.

After finishing the job:

we felt that we (that is, me and a buddy) needed some action:

More to follow....

When coming back to the hotel where we were staying, a local guy, that had a quad, proposed us to show another interesting trail that would lead us to the village, so we ended by doing some kind of rock crawling:

Overall, was an excellent labour day, during which I discovered that my TJ is quite good at doing different things.
What I've learned:
-the BB proved to be a good investment (a higher lift would have been even better);
- the BFG's MT are good tires, but have their limits (especially in mud);
- is good to have a winch, sometimes (or a friend that has one);
- if you're carefull and drive slowly, you can tackle obstacles that you couldn't imagine;
- the russian Lada Niva (the green SUV in the photos) is a great 4x4;
- you have always something to learn.
