A Voice From the Wilderness
« on: October 04, 2011, 10:46:48 »
Hello

It seems a while since i've been in here, & have also sadly been 'Land-Roverless' since Feb 2010 :angry:

I wonder how many of the original members are still here, who joined in that first couple of days of 'Mud-Club'???


On the automotive side, we still have the XKR, but as stated the 110 departed to my sorrow

However, it resurfaced in the classifieds of 'LRM' last month....... bearing a new roof-rack, the NAS front lights removed, & having somehow gained a full service history (only had a partial one with me.... from the then previous owner)



As for other things??I'm still riding, but hardly ever compete in Cyclo-Cross anymore, but I did run a lot, having a 10K 'PB' of 42:38

I also 'play in the mud'/'on the hills' for some of my running too, as I'm one of those crazy 'Fell-Runners' :azn:

Should have added a pic, this is the 110 I had (replacing a Discovery 50th)
