When I first arrived I was looking left and right like a good thing, I was expecting many more Frontera owners to turn up. I think you let the side down boys and girls :D :D :D As mentioned in other posts Ive only been green laning in Ireland for the most part and Cowm was the first proper off-roading Iv ever done. I knew my baby was good, but I never quite realised how good. Besides, I had to have some brave tea after the marshall took us round the 1st time to get in the swing of things. Then if I saw something I just went for it. The tea was definately kicking in by the time I met Tim and was glad when he set off in front of me so I could see what he could do in his truck. The general idea being 'if he can do it, so can I'. Also there are some nice pics on http://www.shotindigital.co.uk Im glad someone saw fit to take a couple of the old girl. I heard a few mutterings around the car park about 'that Frontera that went up that hill'. A great day out. Farley on the 16th March anyone?
I also drink Port and I'm not ashamed to say it!

Is it suitable to take young kids along? How much is it?

Its £25 per vehicle. Kids are fine as long as they can be secured into their seat appropriatley. I can lend you some ratchet straps if need be.. :lol:

on a more serious note - its very bumpy - even the green route - and passengers get bounced around quite a bit.

Like the idea of the ratchet straps maybe some gaffer tape as well to muffle the screams :lol: Will check with shmbo.
