Laning on the Saturday

Forty foot is to the East of Santa Pod, it's not included on the route we're doing. It's normally TRO'd all season anyway. It gets it's name from the width of the lane however I think Bobbins interpretation is more apt. After the rain we've had the past week or so you'd be luck to do 40 inches let alone 40 feet. people have been known to take all day doing it (before it was TRO'd). Even tricked up fully locked Landrovers on 35" Simex get bogged down and need winch assist.

In all honesty your better off steering clear of it unless your prepared to sacrafice motor and leave it as a permanent feature of the landscape as a few have had to do until the ground dried out enough to get a 4wd tractor in the to extract it.

We'll find you enough mud to satify your earthly cravings on the lanes we've got planned.

Regards

Stuart

Just looked on the Northants lanes website, it advises the lanes will be open on 3rd May 2012. Now I'm getting exited :D :D :D :D

So Stuart, you are getting excited. :D

Don't ask what we feel like. I am counting the hours - and the rain drops... So glad to get out of here and see you fellas again and have some fun.

I appreciate your work so much you and Rob do for us to have some impressions of the wonderful countryside!
Kind regards,
Ian

Sorry for my pigeonenglish.

Your welcome Ian, I've loaded the fire pit again so your welcome to come round for a warm up and join in the banter. That invitaion is open to anyone else that cares to drop by. bring your own chair and beverage.

Also packed a tarp to string between a couple of trucks to fashion a covered area around the fire pit.

see you all Friday evening.

Regards

Stuart
