    I can do that too. :)

    There can be all sorts. Ive basically got to sort some easy non scratchy routes and some that can be anything.

    What are your conditions? :lol:

    Freelander driver? :eek: shiny? :eek: no snorkel? :eek:

    Let me know and we can sort something out

    Ok Folks.

    Thursday or friday next week, thats the 1st or 2nd. What is better for everyone? i may well be doing both days.

    Lanes will be a little bit of an unknown quantity, some I've done before a long time ago and some that will be new to me.

    You have to remember this is the midlands and not wales so there is no promises of rocky climbs and 1st low decent's :lol:

    There is law ford ford i need to check out if its low water. Its easy bypassed for those who don't want to do it though.

    Hi Ginge, I'm sorry about the slow response but I won't be able to make Friday, my alternator has shat it's bearings and I cant get the replacement fitted until Friday night.

    Could be easily persuaded for sat/sun however ;)

    Heading off towards hillmorton and then over to market harborough and back again if that helps?

    Trying to think what i can do to help? I have a 100a alternator I'm not currently using if its any help? would need it back though, or a replacement at some point?

    What vehicle? is it?

    Sounds ideal, Market Harborough is 10 minutes from me :D

    That's really kind of you but thankfully there was a heavy parcel for me when I got back from work, just got to bolt it on and run an additional wire to cope with the increased ampage but should be good to go.

    What sort of time are you planning to kick-off on Saturday? So long as I can clear it with the SWMBO tonight then you can count me in.
