That is a near new Disco III at the bottom of the hill.

I reckon there were more 'skid marks' in the drivers seat than visible in the photo!
now THAT'S scary...:eek: (I dunno about skiddies in the driver's seat; I reckon I'd have had to tunnel my way out the car...:o)

Yep not wrong. Looks like they're doing some work to it, they've got some drainage at the bottom mud puddle now, it's practically empty.

Some tractor tracks up top and a little bit of grading has been done.

Hopefully they don't fill it with crush next and make it passable!

Saw some skiddies up the top looks like someone decided to have a go of it on the down slope, crazy bastard.

Sounds good the earlier the better for me. I will have a look for the thread you start. Are you giving out road names on the day so if people get seperated they can catch up?
