Global Pursuits were running a charity event raising money
for Children In Need. I want up in convoy with Greg, and met
Chris French at the site who would be my passenger/cameraman
and winch bitch for the day.
In the car park, I'm pulled to one side to have some pics
taken of my truck. Ah, bless!
We set off on a trundle round the site, up and down some
There's also some nice gentle routes.
And twisty sections.
And more really steep slopes.
Posing for a photo.
Next I was heading down a gully, when Greg suddenly appeared
above me in an ambush position.
Greg carried on straight ahead, and I followed.
A little further up, and this happened:
Its well and truly stuck!
A quick shout to super-Jimny...
...and he's free.
More exploring. There's quite a lot of water at this site,
as it's actually in an old quarry.
Greg helps this Samurai whose burnt out a clutch.
After another wander round, we come across Andy Bales and
John who have gotten themselves into the same gulley that
Greg ended up in. Even with the help of a ground anchor, Andy
can't make it through as he burns his winch out.
Back to the car park, where I meet a certain Mike Bullivant
with a tricked up Disco, who
interrogates asks me about
a couple of lanes in the Peaks. We swap details and carry
Another drive round and stop for a photo.
Then its time to leave.
I drop Chris off and the car park and call it a day.
