Broxhead common

I went to the TV4X4 event on Sunday, had great fun, got stuck twice, first time as shown at a 30ยบ angle when I went from driving on the ridges, so slipping off into one of the gullies. the second time I drove into what I imagined was a shallow puddle only to find that it was not shallow and I was unable to reverse out.

Stuck, got towed out eventually, but not without bending the angle behind the registration plate.
Having been stuck I was pulled out to this location. The bumped was completely submerged when I was stuck.
At the end, cleaned the glass and lights before hitting the road.

I found that the charge light was on constantly and that the engine was getting very hot on the way home. Turned out the fan belt had jumped off and was not turning the water pump or the alternator.
