Two very short Vids.

Unfortunately my video camera is playing up.. don't know why, perhaps I need another.

Anyone got a cheap SD card capable Video camera they want to get rid of, decent quality would be good though!
(My cheap eBay special was ok but it's a bit dodgy now).

Fronty Fun

Listen for the ground out as it slipped back over.. and the distance is around 2 feet! :D

Landie on a mission

(He was determined to kill it after stoving in the front end earlier in the day and then pulling it out again with a Jeep Wrangler!!!) :D It went virtually everywhere! (Then again we also tried almost everything (cept the bit that killed his!)) ;)


Vids should be live now!

Enjoy,

Si




PS, more vids to come, but not from my vid camera sorry.. :(

Rightio..

Here's my meagre collection of pics :)

My group out laning.. at the start, clean, in normal condition.. etc.
Image

Image

A couple of hours later...
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Basingstoke from a distance.
Image

Image

Image

At the camp site on Sunday morning (two had to leave really early!)
Image

Image

Image

At the P&P site, Broxhead Common, Bordon, Hampshire...

Started off well..
Image
Image
Image
Finished up stopped and being towed out ;) Good effort though. (There was a very large ditch half way across and a few cars stopped there!)

Image

Image

Note the sticker on the right side of the bumper!! (Love it): YOU ARE MY CRUMPLE ZONE
Image

Image

Matches the first video... A wheel so far off the ground (with the vehicle stationary (and I got out) that a 500ml bottle of water could fit under the wheel) on the video it goes much higher up though!!! :shock:

Nice to meet some new (and old) faces.......... a great bunch.

Well, it seems that Sam and Jim made it back okay, as have I thankfully (ye gods, i hate public transport sometimes...)

I have a few thank yous to offer as well.. Firstly to Si, for pretty much telling me on Friday "You are *going* to be here this weekend" and letting me be his passenger for the last couple of days, and for his efforts with the organisation...

Second, to all those who came along for the fun; Sam, woodwizzard, Red Oktober, Country_Est, Trogladite, Dark, plus the supporting cast of partners and children... It was great to put some names to faces, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all...

Pics to follow once I manage to persuade my tower to accept the fact that yes there is a bloomin' card reader installed :twisted:
