Ok I have made the video of our trip you'll find it at the bottom of the right up. I have made a higher quality version on DVD if anyone wants a copy let me know and we'll sort something out.

Ok this thread seems a little quiet which is a bit strange seeing as the trip was the goats scroats!

Colley, Scott and myself met in Bromsgrove at 10am had a chat, watched Colley start cable tying his truck together and just wind Scott up about the mission ahead.
We set off and as usual Colley kept the pace down so I didn't have to rag my truck. We were going for about an hour when Scott came across the CB saying he could smell burning clutch. Colley had obviously just done his clutch so we were worried that the job hadn't held. We pulled into a lovely looking mountain bike trail car park and discovered his driver side caliper was sticking sooooo

out came the high lift
off came the wheel
and out came the wd40 and grease

Fixed the problem and cracked on. Arrived at the campsite and it looked stunning very fancy Dan. We picked a spot away from other site users so we didn't cause any disruption, which in hindsight was a bad move as we set up away from the power points so we could stay close to the caravan guys.... actually balls to them they had a toasty caravan :lol: Whilst we were drinking we had ago at fixing Steves car ( strangely enough Steve seemed to do more watching than helping :twisted: )
Woke up with ice on the inside and outside of tents :shock: had a hot shower moaned about how cold it was and fired up the the stove and had some fuel for the day. We set out in our convoy

Myself
Colley
Scott
Gary and Kim
Dannyboy and Export ( if you can guess why he is called Export you win a prize)

First lanes were mud and fairly sedate but as the day progressed they became more technical leading up to Strata. If you haven't done strata It's hard to describe apart from saying it's phenomenal, beautiful and technical at the same time changing in minutes depending on the weather as we found out when we hit the bumhole backwards and Dannyboy had his backdoor smashed in!

Scott broke his drop link which snagged his CV boot but he soldiered on and we had a great run back :D

After a full days driving food was eaten and a few drinks were drank as me, Colley, Scott, Dannyboy and export sat chatting cr@p until we turned in.

Next morning was as cold! We headed out and ended up on a lane that Colley and me had to turn back on and we conquered it :thumbup: a little winching was required but we were soon on our way. The lanes continued to get better and better and the last lane leading up to the damn was breathtaking as it opened out towards the end.

Damage wise
Scott as mentioned about, I cracked a manual hub! :evil: and Dannyboy had his backdoor tattered :lol:

Enjoy Guys



Anyway comments on the video would be appreciated. Cheers :thumbup:
