    It's been a while, circa 10 weeks since my last trip out, so me and my bestie went out for a roof down drive around the Lakes. 160 miles all in and 5hrs. A bit overcast but with plenty of sunny spells. No rain! Covered pretty much most of the Lakes from South Lakes to North Lakes and West Lakes. Not a lot on the road and only a handful of walkers. Pretty much had it to myself :D

    I think these guys did to mate. The convoy passed me going the opposite direction headed by an M6 then M5. On it would be a description :coolsteer) Got clobbered by Plod and sent home for coming in a group.

    Moved mine on drive to move tyres. Unfortunately we live in Wales under an unelected leader who enjoys controlling us —- no moving out of house area for me What harm i would do driving for a trip and staying car i have no idea , but its ok to sit outside chippy eating the food i just bought inside the shop. Its now 2 month since i bought petrol —- longest ever

    Good for your mental health Andy:thumbsup::thumbsup:. We went up to the Peaks on Thursday, parked in a car park in the middle of nowhere and did a 4.5 mile circular walk. Win-win, drive in the Zed and a walk:thumbsup:

    Whereabouts was that Dave?
    I’m thinking a spin out would be good but I’m leaving it at mo because I suspect everyone will have the same idea. Got to fill up first!
