Hi All,

Last Sunday we (Wife, dogs and I) decided to go on a "Shiney" Greenlaning day with Staffs4x4. This turned out to be challenging day as some of the lanes were overgrown and a bit tight, but we made it through and had a great day. The "highpoint", erm, was taking our X'y down from the top of Monsal Head. It was a challenge alright, and not something I'd be looking to tackle again. We made it in one piece, leaving no pieces behind, thanks mainly to my wife getting out and having a crash course in "rock stuffing" the bigger holes and ledges. Sorry no pics of this but we were a bit busy at this time. Here are a few from the easier lanes.

Rough!

I took my truck greenlaning last year :o and was very impressed with the off road capability of the XT :thumbs: , had to back out of some of the lanes though because of lack of ground clearence ;-) .
