Well we had a right laugh, from literally the minute we set off to what ever time we passed out. Thanks to everyone in our group for such a good time, it was perfect. It was the perfect match of pub lunches, picking mushrooms, cups of tea, chats and mucking about having a right laugh, oh and of course the driving :mrgreen:

Big thanks for the organizers that did a fantastic job all round especially with putting the groups together. It was really enjoyable to watch Lee enjoying himself on his first greenlaneing trip and kept up with everything we did despite the drowning of the MV, we were all very impressed and glad you get "it"...

Just a couple of random pictures from our group,
