As Tom has already said this was a great weekend laning with a good mixture of gentle to extreme lanes
We started off from my house on the Saturday morning taking a VERY gentle drive down to strata :butt: :lol: It does not matter how many times you drive strata and the surrounding area the views are amazing

A few pics of the approach to strata

We was going to rough camp on strata so picked a spot early on
Image
Views from are chosen camp site

Image

As strata is so wet and damp no dry wood could be found :( As you can see the wood would no burn even after many trips into the woods to try and find some burnable wood. The woods was so dark inside even though it was day light out side. I even spotted a monster :shock: and wound Tom up about the Blair witch living in there :lol:

Image

Image

As we had no fire and could not see are hand in front of are face we did some night laning and drove off strata 8) We then camped here for the night :lol:
Image

Here are a few random pics and videos on the trip :wink:
