Either dates currently fit in with me, let me know preference.

Aim will be for a 'gentle' days greenlaning, with a break for pub lunch to enjoy the scenery etc.

Nothing too difficult but enough to keep you interested. similar lanes as to today for those that came.

If alot of interest can split and meet for lunch with types of vehicle dictating the routes - eg narrow lanes or the really narrow lanes etc.

I am away until the 23rd, although am sure things will pick up on here.

Ideally looking for max two groups of 4/5 vehicles.

Would be looking for a 930am start (Hedley too early for you i expect (not time the advance notice that is!!))

to finish around 1500hrs.

Well the 27th is my birthday :D , but might be around on the 29th But its the 200miles drive there which makes it a bit of a long way to go for a days laning.Don't really like the fuel bills for the 400 mile round trip. if only petrol grew on trees. Will catch up with you at either wales or some other event soon

Cheers

Jon

I have just put name to groups not nec the grps that will travel together so can split the Exmoor knowledge, meet for lunch etc.

Different routes each day (maybe a couple lanes repeated) mostly water/rocks/gravel under tyre. Will not be doing muddy routes (intentionaly anyway)

If there are more vehicles than spaces i am happy to cabby with someone and map read from there, or ditton some one can cabby with me.

Sounds good to me. So where are the hard lanes on Exmoor now that Kersham is history? Not sure that I know of any harder lanes.

Will try and bring Dave along at least 1 of the days.
