Seven Sisters


Recommended Posts

Got back a couple of hours ago from Seven Sisters after having another realy really excellent weekend.

Decided late on friday night that i would go to seven Sisters on saturday.

got up v early on sat morning and got there for 9:15- to find noone else was up there! oh well they soon turned up.

no piccies i'm afraid- v disorganised- even forgot to take a coat- which was a big mistake.

spent the whole weekend "bitching" for JST (although i was a tad slow).


Getting 30 out of 40 punches in 5 hours

watching 5 Jeeps winch up a hill (took them about 25 mins each), only to then watch Tim (TJ101) power up the same hill in his hybrid in abour 4 mins, with just 4 shunts!

scrambling up and down muddy hills- scratching my arse off- strangely enjoyable

BBQ on saturday- and the pub

James' driving on sunday


rave music til 12:30 am from some manx people- bloody annoying

falling over in a stream- twice

getting lost in the biggest prickliest tree that could be found - scratches all over the plaec

the arsing weather

James' driving on saturday- spent 3 hours NOT getting up hills before realising the centre diff lock wasn't on! so much pointless bitching done!

Edited to say:

Major Lowlight- Car falling down the gully and hitting me head on, on the way down and throwing me across the gully- worth it only for the look on James' face- lots of bruising on my back- see piccy 11 for where it happened"[/size=4]

great to see all of you again- another great social and off roading event.

sure someone will be along soon with some piccies

P.s. John (fruity) how the **** did you break your winch AGAIN!

Aye a cracking event with cracking company, even if all some of the bitches (no names ;) ) did was bitch about bitching and about their drivers driving :rolleyes: although to be honest that was half the entertainment :lol:

Mark90, and his shiny new truck, (now complete with new battle scars,)

Err yeh just a few :unsure: found some more after washing it (yeh a bit keen I know). So that's most panels with dints and few scrapes underneath, and a slightly dented rear shock :rolleyes:

Thank god for X-Eng side protectors, I'd have suffered a lot more damage without them.

Roll on the next one :D

Cracking weekend again, a shame about the weather this morning but it cleared up pretty quick and was fine for the journey home. I must say I was glad to be in a caravan and not under canvass.

Great to put faces to names from the forum and to see some old ones again.

Pictures hopefully tomorrow when i've had time to down load.

Who was collecting punch cards, can I scan mine and email it as there was noone to take it as I left?

Angela/David (and everyone else) cheers for organising and putting the event on/setting up.

Jim -

Cheers for offering to codrive for the weekend and as you request i did my best to make sure you had some phys on Sat!

A cracking weekend, despite Victor moaning even more than me. (oh and the longish drive home into a nice headwind!!!) still got 24.5mpg for the weekend not too bad!

Good to see and catch up with everyone, now looking forward to BDB 07.

What you want all hard punches there i guess now your seasoned to it!

Hey chris,

good man for coming along good to meet you (just so you know i'm Jim- James' "unwilling" bitch for the weekend!)

thought you did really well for your first time out- i most certainly wouldn't have come down that last slope first time i went out in a new car- full marks for rubbish mate!

hope to see you out in the future- reckon that little zook will go just about anywhere- it'll certainly be a while before your aquired skills outweigh the ability of the vehicle!
