Wagtails great, plenty of varied terrain. But watch out for some of the muddy sections, particularly if you are on your own. It's not dangerous, but it's better if other vehicles are about just incase you need a pull out. Other than this enjoy.

We held a BigJimny meet there a few years ago and I keep intending on holding another. If you are going and it is a windy or wet day (i.e no boating) and I may come up and bring my camera (although probably not BigJimny itself)

At this point we realised there was something seriously wrong with the geometry of my car, the rear axle had parted company from the chassis!

Just purchased a 12V to 120W inverter. So a brew will be available ;-)

It runs plugged small watt apliances. A kettle rated at 120 watts will be fine. Unless im missing summit. It runs my juicer!

Ok, well if that fails, i,ll use my mini camp stove. We will hav a brew if it kills me :-)

You are missing 2x and a zero! Most kettles are 2,400 watts, that's 10 amps at 240volts!

The 'coffee cup' immersion heater we kept under the bed in the B&Bs was 1200 watts!
