You are right Paul, with only Nissan and Toyota life would be to boring! Yer well il have a good look at the map but rather head to mt Matlock via Aberfeldy or we can meet in jamieson Friday night and head to mt terrible. Having a good think about it
Now will probably be better to head in via jamieson but I will wait closer to the date and I will finalise plans.

Hey guys have had a few dramas at home so won't be able to make the trip. Am hoping that you guys still go if anyone wants to lead, I have maps and a route I can show or just do your own thing. If not I'm happy to postpone until early/mid August. One again sorry

Kelvin (TREXGQ) Premium Member
Oh sorry to hear that Anthony. If anyone wants to lead this trip let me know i will swap the trip orgsniser manually from our system.
08 Jul 2015
Paul (furkew)
sorry that you have to pull out Anthony. Hopefully somebody is able to put their hand up as trip leader.

I would take over from you, but it looks like I might not get there till early Saturday morning (having a tooth pulled Friday afternoon!!)
08 Jul 2015
Paul (furkew)
ive just realized ive messed up my dates and the dentist is a week later.

I'll happily take the lead on this one.

I'll get in touch with Anthony and find out what his planned tracks were, and go from there if everybody is happy with me taking over.
08 Jul 2015
Matt (mattski)
Oh man I don't know about that... :-) no worries Paul

If I could get a heads up on who is coming Friday night at the pub so I can book a table?
12 Jul 2015
Paul (furkew)
good to see you back in charge. (although I just spent an hour climbing over stuff in my shipping container trying to find all my maps :) )

Ill be there Friday night, so book me in.
12 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Yer sorry about that mate shits just been a little hectic at home, will explain all on the weekend. See you Friday night
12 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Also everyone coming, we will be camping Friday and Saturday night. Looked at the extended forecast and it shows it will be clear weather with temperatures to -1 so please pack warm. A tarp and thermals is probably a good idea!
12 Jul 2015
Paul (furkew)
no stress
the container needed tidying up anyway.

While searching I found a few more things ill need for the weekend.

I saw the extended forecast as well and looked like we could be in for rain and/or snow.
12 Jul 2015
Kelvin (TREXGQ) Premium Member
That's great new Anthony. I will leave it to you guys.
12 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member

13 Jul 2015

Antony, you guys will enjoy the area as there are some nice tracks up that way. If this rain continues I can gaurantee Brewery Track will be a 'look only' unless you like winching. German Spur track is a nice drive & parts of it will keep you on your toes if it stays wet.
13 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
From what I hear I think il be taking the long way round but we'll have a look and see who wants to drive it. Matt and Matt, will you be joining us Friday night?

the last time I tried brewery it had been raining as well, and I didn't even get up the step up at the state so I don't think this weekend will be much different :)
14 Jul 2015
Matt (mattski)
At this stage it looks like I'll be coming on Saturday morning. Work Friday late. Just hope it won't stretch to Saturday too.
14 Jul 2015
Matt (Midday71)
Yes mate I'll be there Friday night.
14 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Cheers guys il just call and make sure they have space at the pub. We will be staying at merrigtons camp ground Friday night.
15 Jul 2015
Matt (Midday71)
At this stage Antony I'll be travelling on my own.
15 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Yer all good, I can't see the pub being full but stranger things have happened
15 Jul 2015
Paul (furkew)
because we will be setting up camp in the dark, shall I bring firewood to get a fire started?
15 Jul 2015

Il have wood mate, all sorted

So Ive tried to contact the pub but they haven't answered and due to work sending me on the other side of the City tomorow I don't think il be there until 730. We can skip the pub all together and just meet up at erica around then or I can just meet you guys there if you still want to get a feed. otherwise if people want to head up a bit earlier I plan to stay at merringtons camp ground Friday night. Matt if you are coming Saturday can you be at the camp by 9am? If anyone needs directions to the camp just let me know and il post it up

I'll try to get to the camp by 8:30 - 9:00
16 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Do you know where it is?
16 Jul 2015
Matt (mattski)
I'll find it
16 Jul 2015
Paul (furkew)
I think ill just grab a bite on the way up and head straight to merringtons. Because its another hours drive from Erica I would like to get there, set up camp and settle in before it gets too late.

If all goes well at work, I should be at the camp site by about 7.30.
16 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Also I will bring a chainsaw but if someone else ha one it wouldn't hurt having a spare
16 Jul 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Also put up a map of where the camp is for who doesn't know. Go over the dam wall, right at the t intersection then it's on your right. The track into the camp is called merringtons, get to the bottom then the campsite is on your right
16 Jul 2015
Paul (furkew)
ive got a chainsaw in the car already. don't go anywhere without it when heading out for a weekend bush.

ill make sure the fire is good and hot when everybody gets there.
16 Jul 2015
Allan (allanmac) Premium Member
Antony, I would be suggesting you all give the pub a miss, as new owners have taken over not so long ago & still 'learning the ropes', so meals can take a long time to be served. Meals are still great, but unless you are there early, especially on a Friday/Saturday night, expect a long wait.
16 Jul 2015
Matt (Midday71)
My chainsaws packed too. See u at the camp.
