Ok folks here is the first of a few links showing some footage from my greenlaning trips in Wales.


Actually I wasn't driving Humphrey, as I have driven Strata Florida far to many times I let my mate drive and actually enjoyed the views out of the window for once.

So Humphrey had a little trip out with the NWLRC a few weeks ago, usual suspects, Strata Florida, Elan Valley reservoir etc etc (you need a permit to drive this) DONT JUST DRIVE IT!

Anyway on to the pictures

Another batch from earlier on in the year, not my photos, but taken through the windscreen of the guy behind.

We did the Corwen Car Wash, Wayfarer, V Gulley and others.











This was a very big hole that gave Humphreys rear bumper an enormous thump!









Onboard video to follow

The V Gulley, this lane is in two parts the steepest and narrowest part is the second half.

Sorry about the poor output from the iPad video, I no longer use this.

Scratchy lane, no shiny paintwork after this one, its a big drop onto the lane too!

Hello,

Did Wales also some times. Happy Valley, Bomber Lane, Scratchy Lane, Wayfarer, Steep Hill, Corwen Carwash, Whitestones, Splashy lane, Pheasant Pan Steps (is a goner, is now very easy to drive) Lost lake. Will do V-Gulley next time and some other lanes I found in the area.
Maybe we can have a talk and drive when we are there in Wales . Second week of May.

Greetings from Robert

Steve, I love to take you there for some trips. I actually have a week of quiet laning there ready on the shelf. So, I guess, just say the word. I think you would like to drive yourself?

Greetings from Robert
