Long Mynd Review - 17-01-10 review & pic`s

Postby Sir-Doris on Sun Jan 17, 2010 9:32 pm

Review and pics here folks ;-)

Another interesting day ;-)

Had a cracker. Scenery was nice as is usual from the top of the Mynd. Even better in the snow. Just a shame only a few made it to the top again ;-)

Good banter and company yet again.

Be uploading a few pics shortly.

au contraire, the first few pics only highlight the real spirit and team work of FOG in action. :drink:

the diff cover sprung a leak, discovered after i tugged a certain 'B' series over a humpy bit, probably took a very unlucky knock during the recovery.
(or your paint gave way) :lol:

Some Fungi for Bernie and our very own mini Croissiere blanche ;-) I have to say that Alex did a far better job at the snowplowing thing then I did. I reckon I had the wrong tires for the job ;-)
