Driverounds at Bordon. Just down A3 from Surbiton to Guildford, then A31 and A325....

We have had several overlanders come for a shakedown of their vehicles; trucks like Mercedes vans, Leylad Daf, Bedford and even a Ural. Our next event is Sunday 17 February at Slab

Slab Drive around

Sounds interesting. I'm not sure I can make this event but please keep us updated of future days. Generally I'll make the most of any chance to watch a Unimog in the mud... I've endured nights of howling winds and rain under a tarp in the bed of my pickup before now just to have a ride as passenger for an hour or two!

 I'd work for free just to mess about in a Unimog for a day or two! If you're ever short staffed I'd fly up and B&B it, bring the mrs and have a weeks holiday at the same time.

I'd prefer to call it research into worthy investments for my business....

Geeks and nerds generally know a lot about their subject. I'm clearly not in that category!  :P
