Natural Habitat for an Ex-Mil Landrover. Laning in Surrey!

Postby Flat4 » Sun Feb 23, 2014 10:43 pm

Went out today, 65miles of lanes.

1 recovery , ent my aerial mount and came across a really technical axle twisting lane. Also LOTS of fallen trees that needed chainsawing and clearing before we could progress on occasion

yeah there was a 110 in front of me that was more of a struggle. Took to long to clear and i had to get home so i had to reverse out, that was bloody hard work and tooks ages. They pressed on and cleared the lane. Think everytime we go we are going to clear back the undergrowth a bit more
