    don't ever forget beautiful things come in small packages and people are just jealous when they see petite lovely ladies

    so don't ever take notice of people who try and take the ****

    senga , old scottish names , or Agnes spelt backwards , even though only being 4 11 she was never concerned with her height ,

    I just hope I haven't touched a nerve by joking as i of course would never wish to do that and apolgise if I have

    u can throw or give me a clump if it's make u feel happier, for. being such a cheeky sod , lol

    I might want to go laning on the Saturday but have under sill gas tanks and was wondering how rough, if at all, it might be? Seem to remember it being fairly easy going from what everybody said last year?

    Gentle but pretty is the way the vast bulk of the midlands lanes can be described.

    I got stuck once because of lousy tyres and not too much clearance in ruts but absolutely nothing rocky or damaging ...or difficult

    Was the depth of the ruts that concerns me because of the sill tanks really. I'll probably take a chance with it. If in doubt, flat out. :)

    Oh, and I've got no recovery points on the front, a front air dam and 205 road tyres on it too. What's the worst could happen? :D
    It's a Range Rover classic, no problem. :D

    The only ones I know of that got stuck were a standard, road tyred Freelander, a 110 on the camping field, and a tricked up Defender truck cab in a ditch .. but that was Yellow90 so expected by some .. All easily recovered mind, and nothing broken other than pride .. ;)
