    The web-site has *always* said "4x4". That's my point: one needs an *off-roader* to get in. A "4x4" ain't always enough...

    I've blown it then, I don't have a 4x4, the wife does though, and I don't wear wellies, I use mountain walking boots, better tread, warmer and just as waterproof.

    *I'll* tow you in!

    Unfortunately, there's precious little parking outside of The Field. One *could* park in the McDonalds car-park, but that seems a bit of a cheek, really.

    the wife does though
    After Ross dropped me off, he went straight round to a local car-wash. Didn't want the missus to see what state the Freelander was in after the attempt to get into The Field.

    I don't wear wellies
    Neither do I, *usually*, but I'm glad that I followed the web-site's advice.

    just as waterproof
    Now *that* would be the important bit...

    Regards,

    I got the message loud and clear that clay shooting was expensive, but I hadn't figured a new/additional car was also needed!

    Chaos, theres a great big parking area just outside the gate, admittedly its the service area parking for the Texaco garage. Was this full up the last time you went?

    No, not full. In fact, that's where Ross parked his Freelander after our failed attempt to get into The Field.

    I just thought that someone, somewhere, would get ratty if a whole bunch of clay shooters filled up their car-park.

    Also, there's the security aspect, as well; unloading gun stuff in a public place - and then mooching off for an hour or so - doesn't seem a great idea to me.

    However, the shoot organisers are *aware* of the problem and so I'm sure a fix will come along. (I'd be interested to know what they do. Our PSG club has a similar problem with acess to one of our sites.)

    Regards,

    Mark.

    A quick update on this one. Parking still in the services, however track up to the shoot looks like its been started. Starting to dry out although still very muddy. Traps are all hard wired now so the radio gremlins have gone. Coffee tea and hot food available. Very friendly.
    With the sun out, made for a great day out shooting.

    I'm glad to hear that.

    Like Arnie, "I'll be back..."
