22 Lee Taunton, Somerset XT660Z – Rally Completed

Post by Lee » Thu Jun 30, 2011 6:49 pm

As you'll all know, from my previous posts, on friday 17th I started my one-trip Nature Rally – I'm not going to post the write-up here yet as I haven't finished writing it and it's already over 8,000 words. When it's done I intend to bundle it up with images and captions and post it as a .pdf for people to download and read at their leisure.

In the meantime, and to assure all those generous folks kind enough to support me that I did indeed complete the trip, I'm going to post the pics from the 20 checkpoints. These will be posted in correct Rally Number order rather than the order in which a visited them.

Thanks Mark

Don't worry guys, the report is on the way – well it will be in a day or so. Plenty of photos too (the main reason why I thought a .pdf might be better)
