A few photographs from this weekends tour of the Yorkshire Moors and Dales. The group consisted of the Ardventures Jeep Wrangler JKU followed by a Jeep Renegade, Grand Cherokee, a Land Rover D2 and 110. Everyone did a great job all weekend, and the tour was completed without incident under the guidance and instruction of Russell Dykes. If you enjoyed the tour as much as we did, please leave a review: https://g.page/Ardventures-4×4/review.
Due to the inclement weather conditions and after reviewing the condition of the lanes on the Yorkshire Wolds, we have decided to change this tour from the Yorkshire Wolds and Moors to the North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales. The tour will, therefore, start at The Cafe Stop, Eastgate Square, Pickering on Saturday morning at 9 AM from where we will explore the North Yorkshire Moors followed by a day in the Yorkshire Dales on Sunday.
We apologise for any inconvenience but our decision is based purely on preserving the Wolds’ lanes which will be a mudbath due to the rain we have had. If we were to continue with the tour excessive damage would be caused to the Wolds’ lanes and that would be in contravention of the principles by which we operate.
Thank you for your understanding.
We have renewed our SPOT Emergency Communications System. This little piece of satellite communications equipment enables us to stay in touch no matter where we are in the World, even when there is no phone signal. When you travel to the remote places that we do, maintaining communications at all times is vital to the safety of the group. Although we’ve never had reason to use it yet, and probably won’t, it’s best to be prepared. This is one reason amongst many you can have “trust in Russ.”
In addition to the above, Russ has done all the tours you join. In fact, they were recce’d and developed by Russ. Occasionally we may venture to new destinations but be assured that if we do, the tour will be called a “recce.” If you join us on a regular, organised tour you can have confidence in the knowledge that Russ has done them many times before and knows all the local hoteliers and garages where you can get your vehicle repaired and/or checked over should the need arise.
Russ is also a qualified RoSPA and BORDA instructor and is a preferred instructor to Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW). Who better to place your trust in when thinking about joining a 4×4 Overland adventure?
