this year - some greenlaning in Lakes, Wales and Yorkshire in May

and then in June a trip from UK > Germany>austria>Poland>czech republic>Slovakia>Romania
with the aim of following lots of offroad trails (pistes) in Romania in the Transalp mountains and Southern Carpathians for a week or so
and visiting Transfagarasan pass and the TransAlpina (which was unfortunately paved in 2010.....)

and got the chopsaw and welder out last night, to start on making a "jib crane" to take the heavy tent on/off car!
1.5m long boom and using 50x50x4mm box section steel
it will mount on heavy duty gate hinges on side of garage, so removable and have a 250kg electric winch hoist on end of boom

could be usefull for lifting other stuff too

That's an impressive piece of off-roading, did you get an extra long extension for the snorkel..?

Most folk just climb into their off-rader via the side steps and in through the door. Telemarker clearly prefers to be hoisted in!
