Snow and ice, Lanes in t'snow

Postby Prof-pat-pending » Mon Sep 25, 2017 7:42 am

Testing the water here
Planning an event on another forum, wondering if there is any interest on here?
Late January, possibly early February
Location Nenthead, Cumbria
Staying in a Bunkhouse, approx £15-20 per person
Playing on some green lanes that will be more white than green
Previous events have seen drifts over 6ft
Prepared vehicles and drivers only
Definitely not for the faint hearted
There will be training and elfin safety before and during for obvious reasons
I would post up kwality pictures, but Jackyboy gets embarrassed.
Watch this space.

Put me down for it as well.
It has to be safer than the husky driving i did last year ,they had a mind of their own, and poor Sam ended up in the snow.

I doubt it will count towards official training ;)

We may dish out kwality deluxe awards for best shovel techniques and most embarrassing lack of talent moments etc :$

I will post up a list of required items to carry etc
I'll try and find some linky things for some of the more obscure items so you can purchase them in advance at half decent prices

Given the location, if it does really really snow you may want to prepare yourself by watching such training films as The Colony, Alive, 30 Days of Night etc.

Prof
Perhaps I should have said good experience rather than training :D

Duncan

If the white stuff does arrive, this will be a great opportunity for some training!! I know, I've experienced it!
