I went with a group of mates for a drive around a logging forest in Bala at the weekend. Amazing scenery and fantastic tracks but not for the first time one of our guys got it badly wrong on what looked like a simple track.

That is either very unfortunate, or **** poor driving.

I did almost exactly that with my 20' long Volvo TGB 6x6 at Drumclog. The worst was losing my creme eggs out the [smashed] window Embarassed Embarassed

ETA
In my case it was **** poor driving!

I don't like to see anyone damage their motor and I have done something similar once so I like to be charitable and say he was unlucky!!

Interestingly he seemed more upset about his lost Marsbar that slid under his seat!

I was going to say, would have been unlucky. I will be looking to join your group again when i have built my project. You go to some good places and seem pretty well organised.
