Closing down drive

I'm off to Wales tomorrow in the company of a party of VW Syncro Campers.
We're going to drive The Gap, Sarn Helen, Talybont and a few other lanes
that will be closed within a few weeks due to NERC. I shall have a tear in
my eye!! :) The Gap especially is a b*****d to lose; fantastic drive with
glorious views.
The weather looks set fair for the Brecon Beacons so it should be a good
day.

All,
Please don't worry about Peter's multiple posts, he seems to be having
problems with his email system - hopefully normal service will resume
soon ;-)

I'd be interested to hear how the VW Synchros make out. I had a 2WD
one for 15 years and nearly went for a 4WD one instead of the TLC when
it died (as a consequence of hauling horses), the main reason for not
getting it being the 2 ton towing limit.

The older (VW type 4, rear-engined) Steyr-Puch factory 4x4 conversion
had a viscous centre diff and lockable front & rear axles, plus good
ground clearance, so it was supposedly pretty unstoppable in mud if on
the right tyres.

The TLC is faster, more comfortable and tows more; but the VW sure had
more interior space!

Sorry about the multiple posts; my mail server was broken in a way that
suggested to me that the messages had been sent when in fact they hadn't,
the server was refusing to process them. By the time I worked out what was
happening there were several copies of my post in the "invisible" queue and
I soon as I repaired the server - whoosh, off they all went before I knew
what was happening.
My apologies!

Hi Christopher
Syncros are very capable devices! There was me in my lifted 35" tyred 4.5L
Landcruiser & 4 Syncros, one of which had a 3.0L(?) Subaru engine conversion
+ 2" lift, 1 x non-lifted 2.5L(?) engined and 2 x 2.1L non lifted machines.
In the main we were not driving extreme terrain apart from the steps & blown
bridge sections on the Gap Road and the bomb holes on the Talybont RUPP; the
Syncros went everywhere the LC did apart from the bomb holes where their
small wheels and inferior ground clearance let them down. The blown bridge
was no problem for any of them and the two 2.1L machines struggled a little
bit on the Gap steps but this was mainly due to not enough forward momentum
to climb the taller steps - once the drivers decided to redline them and get
airborne there was no problem!! ;-) The LC walked up virtually on tickover
however! :) :)
Interior space is truly amazing on the campers - space for six + a fully
fitted kitchen! I was a teeny bit jealous last night, we got to Talybont
reservoir about 7.30pm and two of the party had decided to camp out ready
for some more lanes today; all they had to do was park up, light the stove
and get the kettle on and that was that - camp set!
I quite fancy a Syncro but wouldn't have the heart to dispose of the LC.
