Ok so back home now, unloaded and showered.
So what a great group of folks the SOLAROS club are. This event is a great time especially for families. The camp sites have views that need to be seen to be believed. Everyone as usual in the Rover Community are super friendly and welcoming of new faces. The amazing part is that it is a free event so adding to the amazing campgrounds is the Magical Light fest, that is something like 7.5 miles of Christmas lights.
We did a green laning trip on the closed golf course on Saturday afternoon, that was great fun. As I know a one point or another every Rover owner has looked at a Golf course and thought it would be so much fun to go running around on it. So we did just that, and it was as awesome as I hoped. (yes I'm actually like 5 years old). So as we are cruising the golf course we come up to a 100 ft section of lake between the mainland and a small Island. So across we go. On the way back I got a little off the line and went into some deeper water put the corner of the LR3's hood under water. She lugged through and right back up and out. Even better it didn't short out and quit running.
So a bit more running around and waving to a Bride and her Groom as we passed the Club House. We stopped back at camp to chat with those that had just arrived. Only about 5 trucks were crazy enough to set up camp the night before in the rain/snow. Then everyone loaded up and headed to the Legacy Lodge, where the Bullfrog Bar and Grill was prepared for us to show up and have a great meal. The service was top notch and the food was great as well.
As a the meal came to a end and checks were settled, we lined up in the parking lot to tour the lights in a Rover congo line. It was a fantastic show and I think we now have a picture of every light in the parade Once that was done it was back to camp to tuck in for the evening. So we had some cheesecake and hot coco than fired up the big buddy heater and a The Perfect Roadtrip top gear episode and enjoyed a bit of relaxation to end the night.
This morning was spent tearing down camp, chatting with some great folks and breakfast.
Then as soon as the weekend began we were back in the driveway unloading the LR3.
You really have to respect the LR3, loaded down for camping, hitting the trails or driving through a lake in comfort while lifted and kitted up for off road. Than smooth down the highway at 75mph all day long without missing a beat and comfortable.
