    Had a lovely few days with JJ and Frankie at Quinta Majay!:BigGrin:

    We knew it was going to be interesting escaping from the field and decided to get off on Friday rather than leaving it till Saturday morning when we were due to leave for Spain.:Wink:

    Good job we did!:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I've uploaded 2 videos of the event to YouTube! Enjoy!:Wink:

    Hope these can be seen :Wink::Wink:

    Oh dear...I always thought people over-wintered in Spain and Portugal for the sun and now I am devastated.....they obviously over winter because they went over for a fortnight and got stuck in a forest somewhere and had to wait for the rains to stop and the ground to dry out.............:BigGrin::BigGrin:

    certainly easier with rear wheel drive


    Always good to see someone else with mud on them:Rofl1: But I agree rear wheel drive may have been better.. but not nice getting stuck in the mud

    Marie and Rex didnt you realise that you were staying at HOTEL CALIFORNIA, you can never leave :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    RWD ROOLES, saying that we have still managed to get stuck twice, but that was extreme circumstances.
