Doing what it was designed to do!

Short but brilliant gentle offroad drive on forestry commission tracks (with written authority) near to Loch Long - even 22" wheels and 100% road biased tyres can cope.............. it was wet and the midges were out in force, but a new venue for our club and a really nice non-damaging drive. I did a much longer stream crawl further along the stream in the photos - only myself and another were prepared to give it a go - it was a 4.4 FFRR on MTR's all the Defenders and Discos stayed back and watched, hoping I would bash the RRS I suspect, but Rock Crawl mode in TR saw us through no problem.

The club is the Scottish Green Road Club - www.scotgrc.co.uk - and if you are ever up this way take a look at the club website and forum to see if they have a run on - which is every month to 6 weeks year round and we have another club that all members are automatically made a member of - basically a training club to teach owners how to drive their Land Rovers safely off-road and how to winch/ recover safely. Visitors can join us by prior request, but the club fees are very cheap to become a full member - a one off £30 life time membership fee and then £10 for each drive that covers the fees to the land owner and to play Public Liablity Insurance premiums. It is child and dog friendly too - dogs under control at all times, children to be kept on a lead............. Laughing As we drive on closed roads at these events (there is no public right of way in Scotland, you must have the written permission of the land owner to drive off-road here, and that can be very hard to obtain and costly) often teenagers will get to drive too. The runs we do are selected to be non-damaging and the ethos of the club is to get Land Rover owners to get out into the countryside and enjoy the capabilities of their cars - there are no car wash princesses amongst the members cars! Our membership ranges from babies through to our oldest who is 91 years old and still driving, he starting driving Land Rovers in 1948 as an ambulance driver! He was there this weekend in his Metallic Caribbean Green Disco1 5 door - the one in the photos with stickers and flags all over it.

On hitting what should be second picture get transferred to page that says I'm infected by a virus. Complete balls of course, but thought I'd warn people, don't click on link it asks you to obviously to get rid of alleged virus, or you will have problems if a Windows machine.

As a precaution I have deleted the link to the Photobucket album - must admit I only use any windows OS's at work and last week our entire worldwide systems were brought down by the big ransomeware attack and still only the most basic functions on the company networks are up an running while the iT dept and Microsoft and IBM rebuild our systems.......... At home I'm running all Apple equipment, have only had Windows OS equipment when I have to do CBT online from home because I cannot access them from Safari..... Interestlingly the company was going to change to Apple equipment last year......... but it was going to be too costly. 8 days after a cyber attack we are still not back at work on our systems, cost has been way more than the cost to swap to Apple equipment would have been 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

Thanks Tim Thumbs Up All my equipment is Apple even iPads and phones, but was unfortunately using a Windows 10 laptop today when I came across this.
As stated by npinks above: Please be aware from today Photobucket have removed loads of photos of things for sale on eBay, social sites etc, by blocking links, as you now have to pay to use your images used on for sale sites using links to pbucket, been on the news and IT Pro etc, for full details. There was I thinking I owned all my copyright, which you do, but not any links posted from these sites to Photobucket.

Looks like fun, a nice gentle off road experience, better for newbies too, and those concerned about damage on the more serious off road sites, although up to now I've not had any problems. Whistle John
