02 Feb 2015
Trip Leader Steve (tasl)
Yeah might be Longwarry. Where the speed drops to 80K before going to 110. On the princess hwy

Luke (bushstig)
Sand Rd guys.

Keith Irving (keef)
ok...i'm quite amazed at the interest in this trip..... Its basically to help me decide whether to take the camper to the cape or to tent it.... but at least it should be a laugh if i get stuck a lot.
02 Feb 2015
Robert (Rigger64)
Hi Keith
Yes it will be a laugh & i reckon that you will get stuck @ some stage, in fact i reckon i know the right track that you will get stuck on LOL..
02 Feb 2015
Keith Irving (keef)
LOL....Rob..... Yes i Expect to get stuck.... I'm thinking Andersons but not the 1st obstacle.... maybe the 2nd where a few weeks ago we had to pull close to 10 cars through.... and maybe going UP Gentle Annie......Nash should Interesting depending on which way we go....

I'm hoping (if time permits) to do all 3 both ways

Robert (Rigger64)
Yes that would be funny. But the track i was talking about was Bullock link through the Mud Pit..
This trip i will be bringing the Zook so i will be giving the bog hole on Anderson a good crack..
02 Feb 2015
Kelvin (TREXGQ)
I think Bullock link track would be too much for Keith with a camper. I suggest the trip organiser should decide which tracks they should try, as the trip Title suggested, this trip is for preparing the Cape trip. It will not be a good outcome if the camper is damaged.

Trip Leader Steve (tasl)
Looking at Easy hill climbs, maybe a steepish descent. But at the cape is sand, mud and deep creek crossings. Some of the skills Keith needs to learn is to reverse down a tight track,
03 Feb 2015
Robert (Rigger64)
@Kelvin Bullock was a just a bit of a laugh no way I would suggest that Keith take the trailer through their.
03 Feb 2015
Kelvin (TREXGQ)
@Robert, haha.... I thought you were serious.... you know....Bullock is a driveway to you......haha
03 Feb 2015
Robert (Rigger64)
Yeah Kelvin i do like Bullock but for a boys day out as it could undoutably end up some damage of some sort,
But not for taking a Trailer through there..
