North Wales 02/12/18

Sunday the 2nd of December and some of “our little group” had arranged to meet up to drive a route in North Wales.

The “normal” Mr. B. Logger (aka Dave was only doing half the route) and then he went to celebrate his Father’s 80th Birthday with all his family, so that meant that Brett who was leading and is the normal video taker/maker, was ably asisted by Kevin (StupidMonkey?) taking photos.

So as you see, the first half of the Blog is up to perfect Dave’s standard and Brett (who has never used this blogging software before) has attempted to add comments and all of Kev’s photo’s into the Blog (so i apologise in advance for any Blog typo’s and non-perfecto Blogging) …

Adam getting “delayed” the HUGE Step at Ysbyty Ifan … Gary setting up his back winch, but we decided that winching Adam UP, would probably damage his underbody and engine block, and steering arms etc., so we advised him to reverse back down… 2018-12-02 14.16.08

Here is Kev’s ramblings for the whole day 🙂

Next Trip out is our Annual Crimbo run … 1st Lane of the day is BTL (Brown Trouser Lane) … Tight, Scratchy, a Big Right to Left slope and lane itself Left to Right, so everything wants to slide LEFT … and often does 🙂
