oh 55 miles from my place to the m11 services, think I will set off a tad earlier than the planned 08.00 - just to be safe.

I would say 95% is north of the A120 . We will have to assess the fords on the river Rib as we get to them.

My apologies, truck is ready to roll, tea flask is full, butties made.... But due to family commitments I won't be attending. Have a good day and don't break the trucks, much.... :wink:
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

What a brilliant day. Big thanks to everyone for making today one of the best laning trips I've had and definitely lead. I didn't get any pics as my phone was tied up with the navigation tech and as you are probably about to see i was the subject of a few pics. Thanks to everyone who helped to rescue me from the ditch and apologies for anyone that was remotely fond of their paintwork. I think I win the carnage award with dented front bumper, dented rear quarter, dented front door, dented front wing, smashed rear quarter glass, bent front window mechanism, and destroyed wing mirror. Pretty much the whole passenger side mullerred. Oh and a soggy air filter.

It's not as if the lanes were undrivable it was just a slippy side slope and crap driving.

Hope you all got home safe and had a good day
