Hi All

Having just completed a 1,500 klm (in three days) trip to Cumbria and back to SE UK I thought I'd post/link to a couple of pics/clips. We averaged 8.9 klm per litre at typical 100klm/hr, not bad for this heavy duty truck. Not much to see as we forgot to charge the main camera!

Anyway, although I was expecting a bit of a drag it was actually seemingly an easy run.

I bet its a great place to go i've only been there once via land (been in most ports) and its a little bit off the map iirc i had to travel about 100 miles past Whitehaven on a train then get another train back thanks for posting and nice truck by the way :thumbup:

Hi Shayne
Good to hear from you! Yes Cumbria was very nice, although we felt that North Wales is better, and yes closer. I'm heading to N Wales in Jan again.

Hi Andy
Thanks for the compliments re truck. Yes, we love her - have had a lot of stuff done on her and much more to do yet! The trails are nice, but very short and tame compared to Strata Florida! Haven't needed to use diff lock on any trail anywhere yet, so still awaiting something challenging!
