Just back from Mendipidy as I could only do Friday night and Saturday at the off road centre - first meet and really enjoyed it, thank you everyone involved! :) Great tuition from Clive as a newbie to offroad driving, had us doing scary stuff safely in no time at all...

Few piccies that I took:

Looking forward to the next one, let's hope it's as dry, and maybe a bit warmer :)

Can't you fit a bash guard? looks a bit venerable hanging there on a Syncro.

Reminds me of making this ages ago when on a pretty standard camping weekend with Russel and Jake :shock: The "Hit Zone" looks about spot on.

Thank you to the organisers. It was great to see everyone and meet new faces.

Sadly we had to leave early due a badly slipping clutch. Also had a puncture and bent a front lower arch. But that can all be fixed. We still had a great weekend! :ok

Rogers All Road was very impressive and I'm now being nagged by Gemma as she wants one. Thanks Roger! :lol:
