I'm off to my girlfriends dads place this weekend and her half brothers have been pestering me to take them off roading. I'm only planning on taking them out for a couple of hours but we're going solo, so don't recommend anything that's likely to get me stuck or it could be alot longer than two hours!

Alternatively, anyone know of any off road sites round there that'll be open this weekend?

Thanks muchly in advance :D

Jim.

It might be a little far South from Aylesbury but there is a really nice lane just Alton that would be a breeze in your LC.
AKA Water Lane - see this link for me info :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Seriously though, I think Whaddon 4x4 should be in striking distance from Aylesbury. I haven't been there myself but I've heard from others (ok, they were LR drivers :oops: ) that it's fairly challenging in parts and a good "course". I'm sure it would keep your passengers entertained.

You'll struggle a bit there Jim, bit of a dry spot for lanes. There are some over by Berkhamsted and Dunstable but I couldn't recommend any of them. If you haven't already it might be worth asking on Difflock or the like for some local knowledge.

If you do get stuck, I'm not a million miles away from that area. Not exactly Ian Rubie Rescue Inc but...

One day I'll rescue an 80. Hell, even if I have to hitch one in the tesco carpark and take photos :lol:
(Hopefully the owner won't get in and drive off with my 120 in tow)

Thanks for the help guys, might wander up to Whaddon and see what that's all about. It is nice and close by.

Jon, I know difflock is the font of all knowledge n all but if I put a post up asking about lanes I'd have to search through 7 pages of argueing to find a useful reply. At least here everyone's everyone's mate :)

Hi guys - Jim is popping round tonight to collect your bash plates & brackets. I will have to post out bolts for you next week though - I've been down at Col's workshop today playing at rear wheel carriers (post to follow :) ) otherwise I could have picked up the bolts for you...

Best go get wrapping!!!

Cheers

Edit: PM your addresses to me guys.

Whaddon is about 85 miles from me, so 170 mile round trip... Rob, are you coming into London or will you meet Jim on your way back to Bristol? It would be much easier for me to meet you in London if you're able to pick them up on your way in.
Anyone else coming down South from the Whaddon Bucks area that could potentially assist?
If all else fails, I'll take a spin up to Whaddon. :mrgreen:

Cheers,
