    Fantastic day, thank you.

    One of the slowest runs I have been on, but still one of the most exciting. Driving through the flooded roads was spectacular. Hopefully someone got some pictures.

    Lakes Run - 19th March 2017

    Yes it was good to have Bill waving us off!
    At least there weren't many cyclists out today!
    It was a great run. Shame I drowned my engine during the first river crossing, but I got the hang of it after that.
    Some of the scenery was incredible, especially the raging river/waterfall.

    As well as all of the car pics, I think it should be compulsory for a group shot of the attendees to be taken. It's just as interesting.

    Looked like you all had a great day.

    Woops made a hash of that, if anybody knows how to get rid of the first post which has the flood picture instead of the new recruit on the quadbike, please sort it out. Never mind on we go ...

    Now we should have the pictures of the waterfall / armageddon

    Is that the bow rails of a cruise liner I see ?

    White water rafting anyone ?

    And as requested here is our brave band of intrepid explorers who bravely took there Mark 1s where nobody has taken them before (well not through that much water anyway)
