I have just had a thought.

As i am inexperienced with Laning, and the general concensus is more towards laning than a Pay and Play, how about a fording run as a compromise.

Using the Wetroads

recourse, i think i could come up with a days driving.

What do you think?

Ok you lot, we have a prospective date for the run, and a route :P

The route is non damaging, all made up roads, some a bit steep and slippy :wink:

Date 2nd or 3rd December 2006

The route took me 3.5hrs (from the meet point Pont Abraham services at the end of the M4) on my own. But with photos, stops etc I recon it will be a bit longer in reallity.

Please have a look here

Please sign up here if you are interested and or have a differnt date in
mind

One post per vehicle if you dont mind

Thanks

Nice one Luke.

Even if its Thee and Me, that'll be fine.

But would be nice to meet up with a few of the Midlands Mob.

OT

You mentioned in a previous post about 'going up the mountain'?

Have you got access to some lanes around your area?

If so, we coud meet up sometime for a recci for a possible future laning meet?

Hey Luke

I will be joining Glass /Crag /Grag, i aint decided which yet.

When i do, i will have access to an up to date list of legally drivable lanes.

DRIFTWOOD is a member of GRAG

Trugga is a member of GLASS.

Im out with Trugga next weekend in North Wales, so will quiz him about Glass.

Need to meet with Driftwood to talk about CRAG next.
