After seeing the success of the recent pistonheads trip to the plains i was wondering if anybody would be up for a northern version. No set date in mind but thinking about 3 weeks or so from now on a weekend. I know most of the local lanes so im happy to act as a guide. If your intrested stick your name and vehicle below.

Oh and a few pics from some past adventures might tempt a few along

I have a bog standard LC3 auto but have no off roading experience whatsoever but would love to have a go at something like this but have avoided it so far for fear of cocking up spectacularly!
I'm in if you can entertain a total novice.

I'd be up for that if I can arrange to be at my folks in the Midlands on whatever weekend you decide on. I don't fancy driving my SIII all the way up from London, but my hybrid is sitting in a shed in South Leicestershire -

I'd be up for that with my Cherokee if I'm around on the chosen weekend.

I'd be up for that as long as it happens before the impending arrival the wife and I are expecting. I'm running a 90 with muds and a snorkel. smile

For those worrying about never having done it before relax, i can tailor the lanes to those that are there and my trooper is 100% standard apart from a set of mud terrain tyres. Its mostly rocky surfaces out there though so road biased rubber is fine.

So what dates do people fancy, and is a saturday or sunday best.

Based on this I may well be interested.
I have a bog stock Shogun Sport with road tyres getting due for replacement rolleyes but Ive had an occassional play on rocky stuff before.
Daily / only driver so dont want to risk any damage!

Yes please. Not been offroading for ages, and this looks cloud9.

My Ltwt is on ebay but doesn't seem to be selling, so I could be up for this.

I no longer care, sold the Ltwt at last. Some utter scummer stole the roof earlier in the week though so I lost £300 to make the sale.
