nooooooo i kept them away from the tricky bit as the LWB was on bad road tyres lol, did walk them down it tho to show it off 8)

yea a weekend up there would be good, i have been thinking if we can get some of the muddy fronteras guys up there and tell them to look around, clear and set up some gate/trial routs through the woods and stuff we could be looking at a very big attraction for the more hard core 4x4 as well as the family play out on the fields.

if that would be possible i think thers lots we could do in the woods :lol:

Posting now! What an amazing day, but work and other life commitments have kept me away from the forum. I joined up last week, but wanted to have a decent pic to introduce myself with. I'll go into that in the new members section though.

Big thanks to Luke for showing me around, it's the first time I've ever driven off-road (sorry if I was a bit slow in places!) But I was very satisfied at how capable the car was. The site itself is excellent as an introducer, lots of different terrain and something for everyone. Several sections would need much support from other vehicles to get through and I'd love to try it!

Met one of the site owners, who seems like a really nice guy and I think the site is a little gem.

Anyway, here are some pics, the rest are at my SmugMug site.

I also have a Garmin GPS tracklog of the day that I'll post later and a waypoint to help others find the site.

Clean cars to start the day...

T-Pot stuck, not bad for road tyres though

Luke on a climb

T-Pot failing the climb (road tyres letting him down I think)

Mud Splash!

I may have overcooked the splash...

A little cross-rutted...

A tight squeeze

A fun day out...
Image

With beautiful views...

Thanks once again to Luke, a terrific day and I'm very greatful. Look forward to more adventures off-road! I haven't had the heart to clean the car yet, but I think it looks better this way... (Can't help with arches though sorry, they came with the car...)

Thanks for the welcome, I would love a day out laning! Nothing wrong with Carmarthen, but would be nice to find other locations! :)

I got stuck! :oops: Seriously looking at your pics though, they don't do the steepness of those hills justice. And I was wondering, how easy is it to remove the sidesteps? They really take a chunk out of the breakover angle. I'd like to keep them for day to day use, but remove them for when going seriously off-road These pics show what I mean...
