Well I may have a new toy by Sunday so looking to go and tests it's abilities in the Peak district :twisted:

So I know it's short notice, but here goes anyway.... Does anyone know of any good routes up there and would anyone like to join in on the fun, possibly lead us around?

Will probably be a mid morning to late afternoon stint before we have to come back down to smelly London.

What do you mean MAY well have a new toy? Not having second thoughts I hope ;)

I live on the edge of the Peak and I don't know many areas. Nick might - Clean green and mean. He goes laning around here.
Paul H was up around Whaley Bridge a couple of weeks ago, but that's quite a way.

Well I'm not having second thoughts at all... it's the seller that concerns me ;)

Is Nick on here? Does anyone else have any ideas?

Cheers

Nick has the factory finish green Prado 90. Last post was My lifted Prado or something. I'll PM him to wake him up.

Well, Tony, having looked at the weather forecast for the weekend, I cannot accuse you of being a fair-weather 'laner :twisted: You should get to test the mud plugging abilities anyway :mrgreen:

Congrats about the purchase BTW ;) A birdie whispered to me that you'd taken the plunge but you've been very coy about this!

You know I have not even looked at the weather report... oh well if we never ventured out when it rained we would never get anywhere :lol:

Oh that... you've been chattering about getting a real cruiser for some time now, so we were all taking it with a pinch of salt :p :p :p :p

Congrats on securing Lil Blue - you won't be disappointed with it at all!

Do you mean in terms of reliability or off-road performance? :oops:

[Pity we don't have a "pot-stirring" smiley! Or one with a fish taking the bait! :lol: ]
