Their are also members of the public who could be described as "KnuckleFukers" I met one such individual on the 11th March in Northumberland. Despite avoiding a GLASS Voluntary Restraint 10 mins earlier, recovering a farmer (female) and her car from a ditch (declining payment also may I add) then wishing to proceed along a legal byway one of these KnuckleFukers stood in front of my vehicle in a hostile and threatening manner, and directed me not to drive a BOAT with no restrictions apart from the "gerr auf mi land". All caught on camera Rolling Eyes

Ahh, it's a while since I've had one like that. The usual is the bobble hat wearer who militantly exercises his perfectly legal right to walk down the centre of the road at 1mph.

This usually happens in atrocious weather so guess who gets fed up first, the bobble hat wearer or me listening to my iPod in a nice warm, dry and comfortable D4 ticking over a constant 1 meter behind the bobble hat. Rolling with laughter

I think we've all seen it at some stage Jon. Then you get comments like the one made earlier & despite multiple requests for further info so you can help to take the stress/strain out of the isssue & maybe plan an alternative route, pass on advice to others or even just keep a more wary eye out all you get is silence..............................

England 2005 Discovery 3 TDV6 HSE Auto Bonatti GreyDiscovery 3

So a cracking day on the lanes on Saturday.

Sadly the photos don't do it justice. Beautiful weather, temperature topped out at 20.

Some great lanes.

Took the D3 up and down Parkamoor Shocked




Grisdale.

Tilberthwaite and other lanes joining them together.






Gary (Snow White) and Angela tagged along with myself and two 90s. We got the usual abuse from the 90 guys...computer drivers; all you have to do is push buttons. Blah blah blah, but we definitely had the last laugh. The lead 90 was well modded and got up everything with power and speed (you can add some skill in there). The second 90 was stock other than steering guard and diff guard and AT tyres. Also his diff lock kept popping out and ended up needing to be tied in. Gary's expect advise got the defender through albeit with some new battle scars.

Gary sold himself as having done a few lanes and some experience. It soon became apparent that there was more then just a few lanes behind this man and after some digging it turns out that he drives a challenge truck and competes at a fairly high level. Rolling with laughter

These skills and clear directions were muchly appreciated when in some tight spots. Great to meet another forum member and a thoroughly decent chap. Thumbs Up

Fair bit of bramble rash from the gorse bushes on the lanes and need to give the D3 a thorough clean which she deserves after an amazing weekend. Spent 10 hours driving on Saturday then blasted back down the motorway on Sunday to get home in time for Mothering Sunday dinner. Very Happy
 D3 HSE TDV6 Auto. Bonatti Grey.

Mods:
V8 Brake upgrade (front Only), Full height Luggage guard, Rubber mats all round, RLD spare wheel protector, Terra Firma Steering and Transmission guard, Smoooooth Nappa steering wheel, Clock on dash and Reverse home lights. National Luna split charge system, front and rear light guards, Danhag GSM (on loan), JE stage 1 remap... Zero money

Thanks for the complement. I just enjoy helping people.

However what can't be argued is that a Disco 3 appears to has a better turning circle than a 90. And there is no electronic trickery involved in that ! Rolling with laughter

The Old Coach Road was a nice drive with a few washed out bits when I did it in 2015. Looking at previous posts it seems much worse now!

Yes we were going to do the old coach road on the Sunday.

But after notes on here and a long drive home we decided to miss it.

There isn't anything logged with CCC yet as we did check all routes.
