I've been to Wales this weekend, had a great time, and drove some lanes around the Strata Florida area.

Really happy with the Fronty, it didn't miss a beat.

That was good. What was the helicopter up to?

Someone had come off a mountain bike. Just as we went up the hill an RAF Seaking lifted off taking him to Cardiff, then when we got to the top we found the other helicopter.
The doctor who was still there said he'd got no movement from the neck down, so it didn't sound too good

That takes the shine off what looked like a good days exploring. Your car looked very capable through the trail, do you have a snorkel 'cos you were going through some reasonably deep "ponds". Amazing how the colour of your car looks at hoime in the sticks - gives it a different hue. Very good.

No snorkel, but I was happy with all the water levels. The only bit I didn't risk was the river crossing at the end of the video

Yeah, that looked a bit hairy, looked like the Mitsi was being pushed sideways a bit.

The phrase "pushing ones luck" comes to mind.

The lane on that bit you mention has got really bad since I last drove it. The proper route through the middle has turned really boggy. The only person we had get through it was on 37s, hence why people have started diverting round it.

Not having a dig as people in my group went the way you went due to the middle been very muddy and full of water. It just looks like its got worst since i last went through that way :wink: The bit in the middle when i went through was so deep when i drove in it suddenly drops and had water up the windscreen and loads of water inside but did get through just, and i mean just :wink:
