Very interesting indeed.

Somehow I can't help thinking if that was here in the UK we would not be allowed within a inch of it in our 4x4's

Wow :cool: That looks really awsome :D Is it just open to the public or privately owned :?:

What is the SOP for going there :?: :)

The site is privately owned. The current owner is apparenlty a young lady who wants to honour her deceased father (who loved off-roading) by developing it as an off-road site. I'm not sure if that would be a good thing or not... but would definitely recommend going if you get the opportunity. Hopefully Carl will post up on here again if they do another trip.

Looks like a really cool place aparently 300 acres :thumbup:

I did an Google search on the place name & although nothing comes up as a direct link to info on the place one of the LR forums organised a trip that turned into some kind of really offensive slanging match between its members :? It is prety :shock: ing language they are using on an open forum :roll: :oops:

Indeed we had a great time there! :dance: such an awesome site and yes if it was in the UK we wouldn't be allowed near it!
We'll be going back next year and will keep you posted although it's likely to fill up rather quick! Be nice to see a few more cruisers though! :)

that landy site with the cultured language was asking for contact details but the owners only want respectable and trusted clubs! ;)
