Firstly thanks and well done to Dan for making this happen. It was good to meet some members and have a day playing at what we all enjoy. Between Rob and Dan they did a pretty good job of finding us places to go for quite a few hours,so may in fact that poor old Gary lost out on his fish and chips,although I don't think he would starve after the things he kept pulling out of that tardis of a food bag he had. Nice to have a couple of techy mechy peeps there in the guise of Neal and Fudge. Finally thanks to Chloe for bringing a couple of suitably decorated cakes along and some non techy conversation. Hope we can all meet again and have another go when theres some wet weather on the cards. :dance:

from what we could make out from the map and the GPS, yes its the track and the other path is part of the forestry commission. Well thats what I understood it as being. And RatCav (who was acting as our legal advisor lol) gave it the go ahead :P. Sorry Neal, I dont mean to drop you in it there :P

got to say what an awesome day that was, so glad hipo suggested & got it running & thanks to him & rob who both went to long lengths to find all the good lanes as well as keeping us all legal throughout the day :wink:
the weather was excellent as was the company & ofcourse the wide & varied cake selection supplied by mrs RatCav [ chloe] although i think the extra weight bringing them was probably responsible for the trooppers breakdown :D by the way did anyone get a pic of me towing the trooper ? cos id like that as a new avatar :D & im also glad that i wasnt the only 1 with an xxl lunch box, despite what mick has said he can tuck it away :D

What happened to foggys spotlights ?


that was fudges doing the, 1 spotlight kept appearing & disapearing from my truck during the trip, think im gona call my truck cyclops now :D

im afraid i didnt get many pics as i was too busy enjoying myself so cheers to those that did :wink:

the mud looks like clay today & is well & truly baked on !
& is it just me thats got a neck ache from hell today ? :D

To be honest it was a bit vaugue as to which side was the route and which wasn't. We went with the fact that the other track was closer to the actual forest with all the forestry comission signs on so went on the other one ... well that was my conclusion anyways.

Oh and the decorated cakes:

Most of my pics were already reproced earlier. I however spent most of my time enjoying myself to take more. Chloe tried taking some but couldn't hold the camera still enough and they came out a bit too blurry :D

Forgot to set the miles so can't help you there. More importantly what I would like to know is how many cakes did Fogman get through. :rotfl:

from the meet point to the break point we did 36.7 miles. and I clocked up a total of about 170miles :) total cost of fuel was about £35 for all 170 miles....not too bad I guess. and no, sorry I didnt get a shot of you towning lol....you were too eager to get off I didnt get a chance to get the camera out lol :P. Altho when the rope snapped I didnt think you had killed your truck too :P it didnt fill me with much confidence, but as I said, it was only a snapped rope.

I have done the edit but my internet connecting is shocking today :evil: so I will upload it when I get to work tomorrow. I have edited it as there was alot of the same shots.

Great day out thanks to Dan for sorting the route, I am going to call the rights of way officer about the dead end by the A11.

Many thanks to Chloe for the cakes they were great, I am also so glad you got you clutch sorted :dance: we couldn't leave you behind it wouldn't have been the FOG thing to do.

I knew that one day the picnic blanket would come in handy :lol:
