Day trip taking in the good tracks of Narbethong and the surrounding area.

 

[Note: the original trip leader cannot make it due to mechanical issue, thus I will take over the trip.]

Note: this is a HARD trip for experienced 4wder and well setup 4WDs only. We will tackle some very slippery and hard tracks with steep decent and ascent.

how strict are you on tyre size? I only have 32's but the old girl still goes ok, I think Big All and Kelvin would vouch for that but as the trip leader your call

Josh (Jrgordon)

Hey all, after an awesome snow drive yesterday I munched my rear locker and will be pulling diff out this week.
Totally devo as I won't have it ready for Saturday, and i love the tracks in this area.

Hi Eddie, sorry to hear about your diff. If you cant get it going by Saturday, don’t suppose you could hit us with a map with some of your favourite hard tracks scratched on it?

Fred, Julius and Jake,
If you guys still keen on going for a drive, let's meet up at Marysville Bakery at 8am.
I have asked Eddie to send me some track name that he original plans to do. I think Strickland spur track is one of the well-known track in the area.

Trip Leader Kelvin (TREXGQ) Premium Member
Hi Jake, I've received a track log from Eddie who was the original trip leader.
http://www.mud-maps.com/tracks/29604/

I will do some research and confirm with you later this week. One of the well known good tracks is called Stickland Spur Track. I think we will follow the route.
03 Jun 2015
Jake (jakelux)
Sounds good, I've been wanting to do Strickland Spur.
04 Jun 2015
Matthew (discomatt)

Trip Leader Kelvin (TREXGQ) Premium Member
Yea me too Jake. Strickland Spur is in my bucket list for some time.

Where are you heading Matt?
04 Jun 2015
Matthew (discomatt)
Liza and I are heading up to our favourite camping spot on the Murray at Tocumwal for a long weekend of r and r, 4 days of sitting around the camp fire cooking heaps of food in the camp oven having a roaring fire and plenty of drinks with no TV, Radio, phones or any other modern annoyance.
