  2. Shire LRC are running a new event in Cornwall - a weekend away that includes both green laning and off roading. Saturday 18th March On Saturday we enjoy a day of green laning throughout the East of Cornwall following a route previously published in LRO magazine. Sunday 19th March On Sunday we spend the day at an off road site in Callington. We have not used this site before so it’s a new one to explore! We have been told that it is a superb natural course covering everything you could expect for a well-managed and used off road site. The site boasts different levels of terrain to choose from depending on your vehicle and driver ability. Price is £50 per vehicle for the weekend excluding camping (see below for more details) Camp Site: As always a weekend isn’t a weekend without somewhere to stay, so we have a camp site readily available, with owners who are also keen Land Rover enthusiasts. They have a rally field available for our exclusive use. The field on the camp site boats stunning views out across Henwood and the Lynher valley. The camp site has a function room that we have hired for the Saturday evening so that we all have somewhere warm and dry to sit and socialise together. Hot food can also be ordered (see Cheesewring Farm website) and either eaten in the function room or taken to your base. The campsite has advised that a cooked cooked breakfast is available at £5 per person, which can be booked when you arrive to the site If you so wish. Other facilities available are toilets/showers, utility cabin (with sink, kettle, washing machine, microwave and freezer), chemical toilet and refuse disposal. Price – £10 per pitch, per night. Shire Land Rover Club have access to the field from Friday 17th March to Monday 20th March. If you would like to extend your visit and enjoy the Cornish countryside for longer or have any other queries, please contact us. Click here to purchase tickets for this event. If you are not a Shire member you will need to join here. As with our Seven Sisters event, 5% of all bookings will go to Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance

  4. Last year we did a first road trip in our 1996 110 CSW 300 TDi - having done loads by car. This time we wanted the chance to drive off road (just a little) and not worry about getting stuck. This is how we looked on our way through Austria - the first night where we didn't put up the tent and slept in the back and here's a few of our sleeping platform too The route: Ferry Hull to Rotterdam, Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, France and ferry from Calais. In all 6,160 miles and about eight weeks. I will add to the post over the coming days with a few pics - hopefully is will help anyone contemplating going to that area. Most travellers either go to Greece by ferry from Italy or drive round the back from Hungary to Bulgaria. We went into Serbia and although we only spent a night there, it was a lovely experience and I can recommend it.

  7. Hi all, I thought I'd put a topic up on the fit out of the rear of my 110 DC which is fitted with a Truckman top, I am setting the rear out for camping and overlanding, and this will be the third incarnation of the set up, hopefully it will be the last. So, first up, and done a year or so ago, changing the tailgate from a drop down tailgate to a side opening tailgate. I started off by working out the positions of the hinges. I wanted to fit the hinges in the same position as they would have been had a rear door been fitted. Holes were then drilled and the hinges were then mounted onto the tub. To mount them to the tailgate, I used the original fittings to close the tailgate and hold it in position, giving me the correct position for the side mount hinges. Once they were drilled and fitted, the hinge side latch "eye" and both of the original bottom hinges and the job was done. Next, I moved onto fitting a power distribution and switch board. The sides of the truckman top offer little in the way of fixing points for a switch panel, so I chose to mount a frame directly to the truckman top. For neatness I mounted it by gluing the frame to the truckman's fibreglass side, giving me something to screw the swich panel to. The frame was made: And glued on to the truckman, The switch panel is simply a sheet of ply, to which I have attached a Blue sea 12 position fuse holder with positve and negative bus bar. I ran a twin cable from the second battery to this fuse holder and plan to run all my accesories from this fuse box. I chose to use carling switches and got a 4 gang carling switch holder, and 4 carling switches to go in there. To try to fit the panel flush with the waist line of the tub, I had to add a second piece of ply to give the switches the required depth. I also fitted 2 cigerette sockest for the various 12v accesories we wil be using. More follow....
