The favourite round here in winter is sledging on car bonnets. Bit iffy if you slide forward and catch the locking mechanism though!

Now you will start Codders off!

You are lucky to be able to get at a beach with a vehicle. The miserable gits around most of South Wales have heard that people actually ENJOY such activities so they have BANNED it. Even Pendine sands that had a history of motorsports was closed off even though the locals wanted it to stay open!!!

A classic is at Cefn Sidan near Pembrey - there is a track leading to the beach which has proper road signs on it along etc which show it's suitable for a 4x4 - they just tell you to take care. When you go further down the track there are a load of boulders the size of a Defender blocking the track.

Obviously nobody would take their 4x4 on a busy beach in the summer but when you have about 20 miles to play with that is totally deserted it just makes my blood boil - maybe allowing 4x4s onto the beaches could save a few lives - just ask the poor fisherman who staggered ashore after hours in the Sea - he had miles to crawl before he found help!!!
