Just a quick note to advise that RUPP's are no longer drivable following the NERC Act.

Only BOAT's and ORPA's may be driven legally (subject to no closure orders)

I kinda know the area around Crowcombe and I think most of the lanes up and around the Quantock hills are now restricted byways.

just about to move down to colerne nr chippenham (wilts) this weekend - be down that end for the next few years. already spoke via pm to a couple - seemstheres plenty of chance to get covered in the brown slippy stuff lol - in and out of the cab sometimes!! as soon as i get some decent mud tyres and sort out my rad-weld-radiator, whichis more rad-weld than anything else, il be up for a blast around, see what the score is.

even if the motor's not quite up to scratch id still more than likely pop down for the crack ( :drink: , meet some faces etc, specially being new on the FOGGY scene!

cheers

Be careful about driving on the quantocks Kev, most, if not all of it now are restricted byways and the rangers work closely with the police to stop illegal driving. Some of the tracks run through national trust land and they don't take kindly to it now either.
