Well yo all missed a cracker of a day. It's a good site, with water climbs descents, rocks, mud and a fairly technical section thorugh trees.

i was the 1st one there so the guy gave me a briefing and then waved a red flag by telling me about the hill climb(bloody steep) and said youve gotto get to the top without gettin stuck becos the tops the only place to turn around. So off I went 8) :twisted: And made it . If you check the website you may see me making some rather large waves :lol: :twisted:

And I got to pull the rescue lr(v8) out of a deep trough.... :lol: here goes
