Glad you're back safe and sound

Made good time then, in that old banger :)

Wonderful weekend again, plenty of laughs, and some (overtly challenging) lanes.

Many thanks to Paul for finding us a lovely camping field... must return there!

and to Kev for doing all the routes and providing the overlays. Not forgetting Simon for the Jagermeister and gift of the liqueur glasses.

Lots of pictures to follow I don't doubt... >>>>

Just like to add my thanks to the usual suspects for an enjoyable weekend although may be ultimately more expensive than I envisaged - slightly bouncey journey home but made it!
Will post some picks later of some Landies in distress!

Thanks indeed to everyone who came and had fun and commune with syncros and derbyshire. Fantastic evening round the fire on Saturday under the stars and waning big moon. Hope to see you all soon. Only cut out once on way home, but it started again and went straight home after a hard stare, no hammer or anything required. Will be getting a thorough clean this time and a check through the wiring for the loose one.

Great weekend. Good company and some good lanes (call them lanes; more like dry river beds! )Thank goodness for under body protection---some of the rock bangs and scrappings were a bit scary. Even Harry (the Dalmation) looked a bit green at one stage.
Shame about SOME of the walkers who really need to sort out their selfish attitudes and get a life.There`s plenty of room for all.
Well done Kev and all.

Had a brilliant weekend, I would've like to of done Chapel Gate but didn't want to risk the damage :wink:
Bought a new water pistol to replace the damaged washer bottle it looked easier than fitting another one :D

Noticed whilst having the bank holiday relaxing :) Brantano has an offer on uniroyal hunter wellies and they've got the fastners at the top :D (apparently they've got good grip)

Cheers to all who went on this weekend, especally Kev for making it all happen with good lanes!

Nice to put faces to names and realise just how mental some of you are, and always with helpful advice - very much apresheated for someone like me whos just getting the hang of my new toy.

Didn't take many pictures but the handfull that were okay.

Image
A blocked lane, can't help but think if that green series 3 wasn't weighed down with chequerplate (obveously the owner sees a need to be able to walk on vertical serfaces :roll: ) It might not have broken its back axle in the first place. Wheres the rope on the left go to...

Image
ARE, that should shift it! (well it did with a bit of help from my van - the 90 (also broken ofcouse) did need pulling up a step from stationry).

Image
The cleared lane proved pritty easy.
