Howdy

I'm looking for somewhere to bring the Landcruiser off road for a bit of a mess. A friend let me into the bit of land round his house in Meath and let just say that when it comes to sending it round, it was Landcruiser 1 - Grass Nil.

I'm looking for anywhere that no one would mind a bit of muck or someone with a smallish field that needs ploughing!


Thanks,

Henry

PS I really miss the TDI economy.

We snook into a neighbours field/pit for a mess in a Cherokee. The result mud-tracks leading to from his place to our house was a bit of a giveaway !!

Thanks

The last time I was there with it, it was dark and foggy.

I don't suppose anyone has a set of keys for any of those barriers up there?

The curragh flat?
you arent looking in the right places! if you go to the right corner its the most unflat place around these parts (ok i know thats a pretty un quantifiable expression!) But the dont use it to test mowags - scorpions and hummers (yes we have hummers now) for nothing!

Is that open to anyone?

Will there be muck?

The curragh is great fun, there is a place called Donnelly's Hollow where the used to have 4x4 competitions when I was a kid. And its a good distance from the barracks. There is also plenty of hill over the other side near the range, its over towards brownstown (go through the barracks towards brownstown, turn left at the rising sun and down about 2 miles and turn left at a hut and you will see the signs and the hills too.)
There is not normally many MP's about either and if there is they dont usually care.

Henry not sure if it's still going on but Coillte were felling up in Three Rock not so long ago, all the barriers were wide open all day so they could just go up and down.. I was walking up there and every gate I passed, realised more and more I should've just driven up!!!

Take it off road there, it's too big an area for anyone to be able to notice you. Be careful too though, you can be a bit over zealous with these jeeps and they get stuck too sometimes.

I was in Glencree many years ago with two Nissan Patrols stuck in bog, an ancient Landcruiser which got stuck trying to pull us out and then finally a builders dumper which pulled the three of us free!! I wasn't driving obviously!

Thanks for all the info lads. I think I'll give the mountains another chance when it's bright. I might bring the girlfriend up and kill two birds with the one stone... so to speak.


Then it'll be off to the curragh for a spin.
