  8. Oh I’d take that, last weekends weather would have been no chance !! I’m not going to go all out to win, I’d be happy with just completing it. I don’t do charity either but DART really is different. All volunteers.

I’m hoping to raise some money for DART Disaster Arborist Response Team UK Which is an awesome charity.

  10. I have a Farmi on the front. I wouldn’t drive far with it there. She sticks out a fair bit. The updated heavy springs make a difference. I use the crane to lift it on and off for long drives. I’ve never needed to chip in to the box so can’t help there

  12. You clearly have no knowledge or experience of PTSD or what people actually go through when they are in theatre protecting your freedom and way of life. I would strongly suggest you keep ill informed, clearly un-factual and uneducated opinions to your self or get educated, go and meet and talk to people in or ex serving military about their experiences. I bet you wouldn’t dare say anything like this to soldiers. These guys and girls kept you safe, you owe them everything and any help they get. You in my eyes are pure scum.
