Were going to go out toolangi for a night run and take on cock pit creek track, blow hard, not much help, aeroplane

As of a finish time I can't confirm a definite time but I would like to hope that were not out past 12am it comes down to if people get stuck and need a recovery or if they need a spot then it might be abit of a late night but if you keep into it you should be fine its pretty decent track conditions out there at the moment

The meeting point is in Yarra Glen at the mckenzie reserve car park just off the melba hwy

i was up toolangi last weekend over the long weekend and this is the video from out trip just to give you an idea on what it would be like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUxAi0m6Fq4
it wasnt all that bad but if its going to rain between now and then it would make it pretty hard and i've only made it hard as its at night if it was a day trip i'd say medium to hard
