Thanks for that, I can't make any sense of it, apart from the "Danger Area" in the centre......I'll play "follow the leader" on the day and hope sat nav can pick up the return trail :lol:

Start point is at the byway next to the carpark at Stone Henge 9.30 for 10am start.

If you imagine the route to be in the shape of a horse, the start point is where the 3 routes converge where the horses belly would be.

Hope that makes sense

Yes John, the odd surf or two has been rescued by a fronty.

Not sure if we are all doing the same route or whether there are different routes for different modded vehicles.
Does anyone want my moby number, if so pm me and I will let you have it, might be worth someone coming from the other direction having it just in case.
Was hoping to have the winch fitted by saturday but don't think I have time now :(

Guys just a pre warning,

My truck is making scraping tinny noises from underneath!!!!

Im hoping to have a look tomorrow hope its not serious!!!

Its driving fine so hopefully its nothing but still worrying me!!! (All stems from Broxhead Common P&P site that finished off my brakes and Im hoping not my prop too)

Word of warning do not go to Sand based P&P days as they wreck your truck!!! :(

They do if you don't blast as much cr*p off as possable. Give your prop a good grease up and see if you have any little stones caught around your brakes.
