Ok so Romp has ended and the dust settled along with 20+ hours of driving from Maine to New York to Georgia.

First things first, Never again will I rent a Hyundai with no cruise control. Also has terrible seats







The Waterville Grand Hotel always seems prepared to deal with the Land Rover Community descending on it this weekend year after year. This year was slightly different as it seemed the Hotel staff was angry with life from the minute the even started.


Then it is off to the trails, not necessarily for the off roading but more the comradery of the event. Some years are great wheeling years other years are great socializing years. This was more of a social year as the trails turned into log jams on Saturday.



So on the socializing side the guys from Lucky8 Offroad had set up the Wiener Wagon and a tent for a little hospitality. They were cooking up Bangers and Mash and handing them out for free to people heading out on the trail. Also they had plenty of Winter Romp 2017 stickers and free issues of Outdoorx4 magazine to give out.





They had full converted a Discovery 2 that was no longer fit for the road into a grill.





I spent a couple hours out on the trail, wheeling a bit and recovering a 110 that had snapped a driveshaft and buried itself so badly on friday night that they abandoned it for the evening on the trail.

It was a blast, but I enjoy being outdoors in the snow running winch line. Then it was a long slow ride to get back in due to trails being jammed with trucks. Even got to try recovering a stuck 107 Series Rover with a 355 chevy and 37" with the LR3. In the end though I wasn't willing to beat Lucky8 LR3 hard enough to yank it free. So luckily Justin wondered up the trail and showed me what a rev limiter was for.....

It is an amazing weekend and Saturday night always finds us at Mainly Brews followed by a pub crawl.



Make sure that you have that DD though.





Another great year making new friends and enjoying the adventure. A big thank you to Bruce Fowler for once again putting it on!

The pics outdoors are so similar to here it's incredible, same same right down to the utility lines. We use the power line roads to get to the good stuff quicker.
