Greenlanes in Wales

Postby Del » Wed Aug 01, 2012 1:25 pm

Planning a Welsh greenlane trip over the August bank holiday.

Can anyone recommend any lanes we could use or should not use?

We'll be using more or less standard series trucks.

Any advice gratefully received.

Thanks Del
I have in the meantime given John Dans Email address.

What could be helpful :idea: is to Write up a report (with photos).
And IF Dan was to do the same for his border area visit :?:

Both would provide very good plateforms on which to base further Green Lane ventures.

Just a thought.
Think of you'r selves as Pathfinders 8)

Enjoy :)

Should be able to provide photos/videos of the trip if all goes well. John has kindly sent me OS maps with some lanes highlighted, with those and any others we find should make for an enjoyable weekend.

Not looking forward to the motorway driving at 50mph in our various series trucks.

Hopefully the rain will hold off so we can camp in relative comfort, otherwise might have to find a B&B......

Series travels best at night :wink: You don't really want to go much faster whilst on candles.
Just when you think a series can't get much better....

Drop the screen, but I HAD A ROLL BAR FITTED FIRST.

enjoy
rain comes as standard in Wales
