Spent a couple of nights up in Yorkshire recently, and had a great time!

Was nice to cruise about in the RR - especially when coming to a flooded road along our route. When we came back the other way, the road was actually closed to all traffic, so was lucky to give the underside of the RR a clean in one direction at least! Suspension up to wading height and carry on!... saw the Citroen thing in the rear view mirror decide to turn around as I was heading off down the road.

My lovely co-pilot took a video of us going through it:
Flooded Road in P38

Then decided to take a cruise up and over a couple of the mountains, and managed to get a few pictures on the way up... most of them don't show it, but it was chucking with rain and blowing a gale... I didn't mind though, made the drive more interesting!

Wet wet wet

More narrow roads

As you can see in the last picture, you can just pick out the sideways rain in the headlights!

I'll have a look and see how good the recording was on the dashcam, but managed to attack some pretty big puddles in the road too - think a couple of times I managed to splash the roof!

I once followed a P38 in my Citroën through a flooded road in Greenock where the police were letting 4x4s through but turning cars away - he spotted the "legs go up" moment as I flicked the switch to raise the old CX up to "rock hard but 18" ground clearance" setting :-)

Hmm, for some reason it was set to Private... changed the permissions now, so should be viewable.

Where's this.. I'd guess maybe near Tanhill or Holmfirth? I sometimes go for a drive around Tanhill and to the highest pub in England in summer.

Years ago I bought a BMW750 from Paignton, Devon and set off from Yorkshire to collect it in a Volvo with a rather large car trailer on the back. Stupidly I followed Satnav, which took me down some really tight country lanes with very sharp bends and a river ford. It was the early hours of a very cold morning when I got to the ford, had to take my shoes and socks off to check depth before crossing. Made the crossing then at the other side of the ford was a steep wet hill, front wheels kept spinning all the way up. Last time I'd use Satnav for a trip when towing and last time I'd want to pull something so heavy such a distance using the wrong type of vehicle lol.
