Yippy-ki-aye muddy funsters

Something a little different from the usual aircooleds and rods. Last Sunday a small group assembled at Bicester Services for the long trek into the Northern hinterlands that the locals call Warwickshire.

Sunday, early
(click on the pics blah blah blah)

They were venturing forth for a day's offroading at Future4x4's disused quarry at Avon Dassett. Cris and Matt Rose wanted to test their Scirocco trials car, Ross wanted to get his Shogun muddy and Barry (Jeep Cherokee) & John (Frontera) came along to watch and definitely not go off-road, honestly. Also along for the day were Nest to takes photo's, Greg to hinder Nest and a sprinkling of juniors.

At the quarry were quite a few vehicles, plenty of Land-Rovers, quite a few Suzuki SJ's, a couple of Specials and various others. Conditions were muddier than hoped for and the Scirocco struggled in the goop despite handling the terrain well. The sump guard etc all proved to be up to the job.

The 4x4's however were loving it. And it didn't take long for Barry and John to get out there.

Ross was out and about in his Shogun, giving rides and even letting ginga have a go, hmm...

And then it broke
Luckily it was only a loose battery. Quick reconnection and it was going again.
And the sump guard had to be, ahem, helped off.
