Hoping to have the Team SouthWest all together this Sunday

Clearly lardmarc has taken this very seriously
He has been seen out training during the winter months (with mixed results)

As Minter says "looking forward to this already"

It's possible to enter this event as a novice off roader.... The trails should be dry and most of them are like riding good forestry trails in the UK.... Austin will tell you which checkpoints aren't for the faint hearted...... Equally important are good map reading skills....
I've entered twice and don't consider myself to be skilled or brave off road..... In 2014 we came fourth despite loosing our log book, setting off late, and finding fine dining for lunch....

I hope the 'fourth' member has made his mind up. I'm looking forward to the 'journey' as much as the 'destination', that makes me sound almost modern.

You're in no position to slate anybody for being absent minded, about this time last year you were telling us how you'd lost a house.
