Experience is always good, but again that doesn't matter either. Plenty of FOGgers on hand to laugh when you mess up...erm, I mean lend a hand. :lol:

Honestly, it is open to everyone and all, and probably the best place to get yourself some experience. There will be plenty of foggers around to help, and if you are unsure then you can jump in with someone going round the site, or have someone jump in with you to show you the way ;)

And, more importantly, you get to meet a whole load of nutters and have a fantastic time away from the offroading as well :lol:

Seriously, don't worry about it mate. The offroad bit doesn't interest me to be honest, i was only on the course for about 30 mins all weekend. You can do as little or as much as you like. But as Jay (Alchamist) suggests, going round with someone or having them jump in with you is a good idea, just so that you can get a feel for the place.

I would have said there was probably about 10 kids all told this year. Mine are older (13 & 15, the 16 yr old won't camp :roll: ), and they ended up adopting some of the younger kids for the weekend.
They'll be fine mate, and driving in the camping area is restricted to walking speed , so that won't be a concern either.

If Hound Dog brings his clan along, his eldest daughter is 4 I believe, and I know there were other kids of rounghly that age group. And as Si says, his two were brilliant with the younger ones, adopting and amusing them for the weekend. I would imagine your two will have company to keep them occupied.

if its a TomTom it will route her up the A470 to Dolgellau, then down the A493 coastal through Tywyn, into Machynlleth, then back .......


That's probably a bit technical for Roo, bless her. I think last year she took herself off to Bobster's in Stoke, and then convoyed down to avalanche with them, hehe. We poke fun at her navigation, but love her really :wink:

Hi All

In answer to Furballs question on laning. Having just sign up including my mate (laning guide as last year, we don't use the site course) I can now advise that there will be laning for those that want it. We have in mind an interesting run that our local club did last year, although it is a long run there are some cracking lanes to do (expect scratching....and dents if your not careful through the trees). we'll give it a run prior to the meet to time it and make sure it's all open. It is our intension to do this in groups on one of the 2 days, the other day we can do lanes local to the site.

If we don't get much rain and the surface is dry a car on A/t's will and a car on road tyres should be able to get round. If it's wet road tyres will struggle.

It'll be the same as last year, you bring your own lunch and drink, we'll find somewhere to stop and brew up on route. Promises to be a good days laning.

I'll start a laning list in the new year to give you all time to consider your options, break it on the site or scratch it on the lanes (you can always bypass the scratchy lane)

Regards

Stuart
Remember, keep the greasy side down!

Nice one Stuart. I was hoping the laning may be a little more interesting than last year and it looks like you've got it covered :thumbup:

Or break the toy on site one day, and scratch the bus on the lanes on the other....

Cheers for putting in the effort for laning, muchly appreciated.
