After passing each other a couple of times as we all tried to find the correct route, we decided to turn round and follow them. This is where I made a slight error and missed the hard standing in the field gateway and dropped the drivers side rear wheel into a ditch. Well & truly stuck. The rest of the gang had disappeared and we were on our own.
While we were waiting, the rest of the crew turned up again, still searching for the right route. After having a laugh and taking some pictures most went on with the run. Lloyd & Marjorie stayed with us. A passing 4x4 driver was kind enough to drag us out of the ditch and just after we got out, the farmer turned up too. Thanks to both for their kind efforts.
Once back on the road I did a quick check for damage and all looked fine. A gentle mile or so didn't show any problems so we let Lloyd past as he was going to show us a shortcut to get to Benningborough. Crikey! Those modern TFs don't half shift and they go round corners like they are on rails. I was having to work really hard in the GT to keep up.
We eventually arrived at Benningborough Hall, had a car park picnic then met up with some of the others for discussions on the day. We are pretty sure what caused the navigational problems that plagued all of us. There was some serious mud on the road at one of the junctions which obscured the road markings. With no signboards it was difficult to know which road to take. We took the right which looked like a right hand bend when in fact it was a right turn and we should have gone straight on. Ah well, that's life.
A good day, despite our problems. Thanks to Lloyd & Marjorie for all their planning.
