Evening all

Had a good day even though I had several incidents :oops: :oops: :? :?

Great to meet Carl, Anna and Phil and also Rich and Claire who I've met before.

Brought my 2 girls along again and they enjoyed most of it apart from the BIG bumps and some of my driving :lol: :lol:

Just been going through the vid's I took, will post them when I figure out how to edit them :oops: :oops:

First time for all of us at this site and it was very very muddy, loads of Green Oval machines there and the 2CV turned up as well sporting its new oraange paint job :D :D

We were probably outnumbered 15 to 1 but we all did well only getting stuck when beached including Rich on AT's and std suspension. Always amazes me how well that old truck of yours goes even on AT's :wink: :wink:

Most of the other machinery there was running 33's or bigger which made life interesting for those of us on 31's especially later on in the day when the ground was well churned up .

Managed to prang the Paj 3 times, front corner was the worst and on the way home had total brake failure, pedal to the floor while trying to stop at a roundabout, managed not to get hit and finished the journey home using the handbrake :shock: :shock:

Can't find the CD that came with my camcorder so waiting for a software download to finish so I can edit what I have and get it posted. Camcorder is a JVC and uses a non standard recording format apparently :roll: :roll:

Had a look through and there is some useable footage :D :D
