Yeah, I think Steve was a little more kamizkaze than I was through the water, and I was probably a bit too quick over certain bits of Whitestones. Got the dinges underneath to prove it :D

Yeah I chucked the camera at my daughter and just told her too keep clicking. There are a few more lanes I still haven't tried round here so I want to give them a go in the next couple of months. Might even be able to persuade the Liverpool Massive to come :wink:

Was stunned at the state of whitestones, considering I was only there last october :(


So am I, a lane I know well, never seen it that bad :shock: You did the right thing at the lost lake by turning round, many a laner come a cropper here and literally sunk. Excellent pics, and a good write up 8)
Someone mention laning? Just tell me when and where!

Cheers Simon, what a day it was a yesterday!!! Thanks to your daughter for all the gate opening and closing, it certainly makes life easy having a gate opener. I am trying to work out how to upload vids, when I have sorted it i will post on here.

Looking forward to the next time, hopefull we can get a few more of us out? We need to set a date and get people to sign up, I did leave it a little last minute that time.

Has your filter dried out? and the eml stayed out?

Thanks again

Steve

no worries Steve, it was a good day :D

Yes mate, I'm hoping to twist Drift's and Andysd1's arm to come, and by the look of Furio's location he isn't a million miles away either so we can hopefully get something together.

Yeah airfilter is dry, can't believe I forgot to seal the damn air box screws :wall: :wall: EML was fine after we emptied the water out of the filter box :D

Oh, and for the piccies and vids you can upload them to Photobucket (free) and post the links here :D

Very good guys, pleased you all had a good day :dance: :dance:
Also might be an idea to turn your lights off when you going through deep water as you could pop a bulb :wink: I was told that as I hit the cold water with my lights on :D

Cheers

Well my MOT runs out at the end of March so I would rather we all went laning before that runs out :) I am sure it will fail on something major :)

stevd - I think you need to fix your rear seats buddy! listening to them as you bounce down them lanes is like nails on a chalk board! :shock: especially video 7 of 20 on your PhotoBucket page.
But good vids! REALLY wish I lived in wales now! :(
