Crickey Dave! That is all.

All back together yesterday...



A JimnyBits adjustable panhard rod finished the job ;)

Then took it for a wash and gave it the once over ready for our next trip on the 18th...

Is that buggy finished yet?...

A good day's "Tight & Scratchy~ greenlaning around North Wales today -



Our route for the day...



Starting with a breakfast at the Whistlestop Cafe' of course!

Just the two Jimnys for this trip... me & Alan and our-Brett



A new 'lane for us... one we'd looked at before and GLASS had been and opened up a bit...



A nice 'BOAT that has recently been re-opened after having a (too) small gate in the middle of it for years...



Emerging from the tunnel of undergrowth on one of our favourite 'lanes...



"Just the two (three) of us"



After five years 'laning the Jimny I thought I had my first puncture, but it "luckily" turned out to be 'just' the valve being ripped off!


And to round off the day, a yearly attempt at Henryd, probably the toughest 'lane we drive?...



Another cracking day out B)

(There's more photos on Facebook if we're "friends", and if not... why not?!}

One of these days I am not going to be working 7 days a week and I am going to have to tag along with you blokes. You always seem to have a good day out!

Looking at the nature of what you regularly do I suspect that Dreadnaught might not have anywhere near the level of required modifications to keep up, either that or you would be bored out of your minds on the lanes Dreadnaught could handle safely!

Sunday the 20th of October and a subset pf "our little group" arranged to meet up for a days 'laning in the Lake District...



I met Brett at our usual 'heading north' meeting point at the start of the M56 where our two jurneys coincide, and I was following him up the M6 when the signs started flashing that the m6 was closed between junctions 34-35... and we wanted? Yup... Junction 36! So Brett led us round it, so that we still met the others...



... at our arranged meeting place ;)

Left - Right - Riccy in Ulysses, Brett in Jalapeno, Me in S200KYS, Adam in the silver Jimny and Phil & Rob in the big FUN Jimny...

And off we went! I won't bore you with all the photos, so here's the Jimny highlights...



Riccy's awesome Ulysses B)







Now that's what I call a GREEN lne! ;)





Breasthigh Road ahead!



Riccy fording the river





Brett not taking any bull! This big fella stoof his ground and just bellowed at us! :lol:



Me leading back up after Brettwas filming us at the bottom, and so that I could get the rear winch on Adam if required... but no, that Jimny went everywhere... on open diffs B)



Moving some rocks around before having another - successful - run at it! ;)



Back at the top of Breasthigh Road



Halfway back down...
