Looks like you had a great trip, sad we missed out on meeting up with you guys.
Had a few problems with Discovery.
May be another time, our son is moving down to Suffolk when we vist him next year, try and meet up for a chat and clinking teacups

No problem... Yes, it was a great trip! We had our fair share of adventure!!! Weather was everything from sunny mornings and great sunsets to 60 MPH winds and torrential rain!
Had a few mechanical issues ranging from broken timing belt on a L200 to a collapsed trailer axle, plus a few bent things after our offroading day! Plus a few cuts and bruises with kids just being kids.....
Scenery was incredible and everyone on the trip wants to go back..... Smile

You will be welcome with open arms south of the border if you ever fancy a visit...... Let me know when....

Hope ya got ya Disco sorted..?

Scott.

Nice. Donkey's years ago I drove with a girlfriend up the left of Scottishland, across the top and down the right, always remember that as being a great holiday. Abroad is fine, but there's some truly wonderful stuff on our own doorstep. Often the way that people miss out on the obvious.

Being a 'jock' myself, I knew what kind of scenery we were in for but I had never personally driven from Ullapool to Durness along the Drumbeg (North500) route. WOW! We found some fantastic places which photographs will never give them justice!
After a 'tip off' we went to a incredible campsite in Mull as well which you need to see to believe it!
Of course the weather was a huge factor, but as long as you are prepared then its fine.
NOEs are already looking at 2016 expeditions and will be doing some major planning over the winter. I am pleased to see that some members are now gaining confidence and have started to look at doing bigger trips themselves.
I have no doubt NOEs will return to Scotland in the future...! cheers1

Hi Tom,
Sorry, but several members are busy or away on the date of the show. Therefore thanks, but you can give the pitch area to another group......
I will be in India again for work, however this looks like it might be my last hitch here in India......

Africa is calling...... Wink

Well I'll be, that's exactly the route I was talking about, only I tackled it some 40 years ago!
