For those who do not have sat nav I have managed to create an itn file from the google map route created by Marcus and succesfully managed to upload it to my TomTom.

Let me know if anyone needs any assistance with this!

Have just been snow-foaming and pressure washing for over a month, which only gets rid of the major grime, thus the hand-wash. Wax was to help protect the paintwork from the assault it's going to go through

The jet was at another home in England, which he had to remove - can't remember why. The picture above is at his house in the Isle of Man, which is in the UK but not England.

Fair enough, a quick wipe over the windows is as far as I am going to go, I probably have about 15 coats of wax already built up for protection so a spray of chemicalguys speed wipe is all it needs lol

My solution is to stay behind you guys so that you all clear the sheep poo away for me!

Afraid with the size of our rear tyres, staying behind will only end up covered in

Hi Guys

I just happen to be in Wales this weekend for a family trip so where are you planning on being on either Saturday pm or Sunday pm? I could just find myself taking a detour to meet up maybe?

Have a great one and try to use the awesome and quick A4212 from Bala through to Trawsfyndd - one of the best and well sighted roads in the area in my opinion.

Chris
