Muck-Shift Working Weekend

June 30, 2011

On the 18th and 19th June we attended a ‘Muck-shift working weekend’ at a site near Lutterworth, organised by Paul Badger for the Caterpillar owners LINK Club. We had to re-profile a 4×4 course.  The site was awkward in that the haul routes were short and the turns were tight, as we found out with our tracks trying to come off!
