Right guys there are few changes!
Tom is unable to make it and Scott's truck has no 4 wheel drive!
Scott is coming with me in my truck and we will meet you at 10am as arranged :wink:
Looking forward to this day out as all I have done recently is work work work!

Danny, the next annual is being held in Wales.
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here

I know pal, but there are that many going and wanting to lane that it could be a nightmare getting out and most people don't want to do the more extreme lanes.
I'm not good with computers so I can't plan routes, this is why I go out with Colley and Steve, they too like the more technical lanes but are both more than capable of planning our routes.
Not sure if I'm free eather to be honest as my work changes quite abit, might get down tho if I'm free :wink:

All groups will be no more than five and if you want to go more "Extreme" what is stopping you :roll:

I hate things being dissed without any evidence or even asking what the situation is :evil:

Erm, what's "being dissed"? :eh:
Was merely saying that if there are lots going laning and all setting out from the same place it will probably mean busy lanes, or have I got that wrong?? :think:
Also are you saying I should go for the more extreme lanes alone?? :problem:

Can you tell what will be a nightmare now I have furnished you with the facts?
You could have asked for the facts before dismissing the annual laning, and where do I say you should go alone?
Please read and think about the statements you are making, it was stated Wales is a huge area and it would be worked so no group is tripping over another, yes starting from the same place but going different places different days its part of the reason that part of the world was chosen for the meet.

Very brief summary -

It was a good day of laning. The new lanes were great and the view were something else, cheers colley!!! And thanks scott for opening all the gates and being willing to take bits off my car for me - it was too dirty for me!

Managed to modify my exhaust well rip it off - either way its all good, and colley has modified his number plate to be in another place, that place we are unsure of, but its better than where it was. So in terms of things falling off cars it 1 all.

When I finally figured out what all the leavers on the car were for, I managed to climb all of the hills. Before this, approaching things flat out worked almost as good.

Managed to get up bar steward lane without the use of the sleeper too, which was fun.

Vids to follow once I have uploaded them to you tube, watch this space kids
