3 emergency TRO's came into force this week, these last until next year.
they are probably 3 of the most used byways including the well known one around the German village.


Indeed, TimberJohn and I chatted about this briefly at Broxhead. Pretty sure I'm not using these lanes - CHIT 1 and 2 I think? - part of the reason I picked the 9th and not the 2nd was so I could have time to check lanes. Which I'll do tonight, thanks for the heads-up :yes:

Fiddle dee dee. A closer look has revealed that a large section of one of my routes is now off-piste. It was quite a fun one with plenty of mud. (Those who came in Oct seemed to quite like this stretch! lol)

Oh well. Looks like it will open again in April. Most of the other closures I saw seem to be quite far off the playground, as it were!

If I've done this right, then the arrow on the map is where I usually park and wait.

http://streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=415498&y=142168&z=110&sv=415498,142168&st=4&ar=y&mapp=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf&dn=551&ax=415498&ay=142168&lm=0

Nearest postcode: SP4 7AS, meet 10.30 - 11.00 AM.

Weather for the day is apparantly dry and sunny on Sunday, so perfect views, but Saturday heavy rainful so expect mud and water. Should be a good day I think!

Once again looks like round 2
However I try to read with understanding :lol:

Anyway. I'm looking forward to this trip.
To be honest this time is again not the perfect moment for me :cry:
I'm off sick last week with quite hard asthma attack ... Not nice.
I have hope to be ready for Sunday. I have to :mrgreen:

Good news and slightly less good news.

Good news first: as best I can make out the Plains are OPEN this weekend, so we're good to go.

Slightly less good news: Due to personal circumstances I have to change the time slightly and I got be sure to be finished in good time. The day is still looking good, but I can't leave Portsmouth until 10AM.

So we'll meet up 11.30 AM, drive our lanes, I'm thinking 2.30-3pm is where I got to get back home, really need to be back by 4pm.

Hope that's OK guys?
