Wolverhampton is an awful place, it's full of people with funny accents, Your vehicle will need a very good clean cos of the rain and the grit on the road.

meeting a geezer with a funny accent round his house tomorrow morning at 8.am, i think you know him by the way, then meeting another with yet another strange accent north of manchester to pick up a white thing, then meeting another chap with a funny accent for coffee, then travelling down the m6 to meet a brummy in a truckers cafe to pick up some shiny stuff. then home

so tomorrow is all about meeting folks with funny accents!!! no doubt i will sound a bit odd to them too. and wolverhampton cant be any worse than basingstoke!!!

always found our friends up north to be very friendly and helpful and tomorrow is testomony to that

SPOT on!!!

Actually my light bar is removable - when I take it off I can then put the anti riot screen back on - great for driving through trees!!!

These pics were taken quite near Swansea - will go later back up to Black Mountains and Sarn Helen - the roman road.

Well spotted - yes the nice alloys have wider all terrains - much better on tarmac and sand. The steel wheels have taller mud pluggers - awesome in snow. Great for crushing pallets for my wood burner as well. Drive the Landie over a pallet and it smashes it to bits - you don't even feel the bump!!!

Cornwall seems to have had it pretty bad as well.

Snowing again in the hills - freezing fog as well. Just getting the thermos on the go - and YES I am just a big kid!!!
