Just got a German pickup recently and a French can that I've had for a while.
My speedster days are temporarily over.

Well basically I drive a fairly large mileage in a year for my work, and have a young family, therefore my "decent" vehicle is a big uneconomical and slow pickup which fits the bill for safe, all year use with loads of space and can tow a bit.
I also use the reliable, economical van for the commute which has space to carry my mike in the back.

Therefore I do not have a suitable sace in my life at the moment for a fast or fun vehicle Sad
Perhaps if I ever get a garage I may stick something away in there for highdays and holidays.

Boo! problem is when you have family, highdays and holidays that you can enjoy on your own become few and far between!!  Having a family should be just as rewarding. Very Happy

we opted not to have a family, we opted to build a big house, so all my toys are on hold at the mo. problem now is my body is waring out!! Crying or Very sad

I very much doubt it Cait, the best place for it is probably the scrap yard!

You would not be permitted to drive an unroadworthy, or roadworthy, vehicle on forestry track where the public have access, without appropriate insurances in place.

You would also need the permission of the landowner.

Yes you do, unless it is ungated from a public road (where you still may need permission), if you have to open a gate to enter you need permission. The Forestry Commission, and I imagine, Fountain Forestry and Tillhill Forestry, will be unlikely to autherise access to there land without valid reason.
