Another brilliant Syncronauts weekend. Huge thanks to Clive, Jenny, Roger and of course Dominic for all their hard work.
Great driving fun, followed by lovely fireside evenings.
Looking forward to meeting you all again soon

Myself, Sally and the dogs had a brilliant time, many thanks to all involved. We arrived impromptu after being adamant we weren't going - blame bucketbabe and winchweight for the incessant nagging :wink:

Anyway, we are glad we did as it was our first time taking the van off road :D and learned a good deal about green lanes :shock: , dif-locks :evil: , roofracks :oops:

Thanks to Baz, Clive and Craig for the Sunday morning mechanics - I know it took longer than it should and I know you'd have rather been out on the lanes - truly appreciated the help and the learning opportunity :ok

Yes the lemon tequilla had a 'very slight' 'morning after' effect on me too... hence donning overalls & pretending I was helping.
Good sets of images there everyone. Will see if we can add to them @@

Ended up doing some cracking (unrecced) Dartmoor Lanes on the Saturday... and moor Dart on Sunday. Friday evening was the normal local circuit with a few laughs thrown in. Thursday night steak and glassawine deal at the Wyndham.
Monday it rained and most people went home... then it stopped raining.
then it started again all Monday night & Tuesday morning till 9. Roger & Julia decamped & left then we did taking advantage of a relatively dry spell.

Very pleased that everyone had a good time, Clive has asked me to organise the event for next year, so we will be out checking out the lanes in good time and already have eager volunteers to help out.

There's a picture of my fat a***, but none of our van....... :ok

Nice pics though, they capture just how narrow some of those lanes were.

Sunday

We went back to Dartmoor and started off with some lanes near Ilsington

We had an audience

We ended up at our old favourite Fingle Bridge. Everyone crossed without incident!
