Yes mate G was my passenger :roll: He was meant to be navigating but he forgot his glasses :lol: :lol:
Got stuck on a muddy field mate :shock:
The field was on a big hill with the lane running at the bottom of it. All the water had ran down the hill and made the lane like an ice rink. It was so slippery you could not even stand up without falling over :lol: :lol:
Anyway when driving on the lane we all just slid into fence. Took one and half hours to get off the lane with a winch and waffle boards :shock:

Thanks to: Colley for letting me be his passenger :lol: ; Phil and Alfie n Charlotte for a great day out, what better way to spend New Years Day ?
Plenty of laughs, new lanes and interesting moments, especially trying to navigate without specs, thought I was following a river Si, but turned out it was the M52.
Will really miss this :cry:
See ya all at the meet tomorrow :party:
