Walhalla night run HARD

Walhalla, VIC

See more trips

Plan on getting some dinner at the pub next to Rawson caravan park (forgot what it's called but will find out before the trip). Hopefully leave there by 730 and go do deep creek 1 and 4 then depending on how everyone is fealing do fultons creek than find a camp (probably at the old

hut on fultons creek). Have a sleep in then do a few of the shorter tracks finishing the trip At Thompson damn by around 3.

Gday Fellas,

Sounds like a top trip. As it is full i don't wish to take my vehicle. But don't suppose it would be possible to ride shotgun with someone and come along on this trip? I would be happy to meet in Walhalla or Rawson and jump in with someone else. Haven't done much night driving so just thought if it would be possible i would jump in with someone. If not no worries but thought i would ask!
Cheers,

Joel

Joel i would be keen to have you ride shotgun with me if my friend doesn't come along. He has said yes but if it changes between now and then I'd be happy to have you on board mate.
Who knows, you may even sell the luxy and buy a triton ;)

Deep creek 1 at night. You guys are clearly very well set up or crazy. I believe they did grade it but still that ledge is a real challenge. I won't be going near it on our gf weekend trip.

Yeah shes nicely set up but kinda a lot of money to throw on a vehicle that only gets used for going away.
She sits at home garaged waiting for that next trip out.
Looking forward to this trip.
And yes keep in touch amd we shall head on in together

George (Georgie_Kyro)
Ok so after watching this video i have come to the conclusion that i will be removing the roof top tent and throwing a swag in the back considering its a 1 nighter, also main reason is lower centre of gravity and by the looks of things in this video it is probably the safer option...
Cant wait , looks epic!

Cheers Kelvin

The wife to be (get married on December 26th) isnt really fond of my rig or 4wding as she thinks thats all i do and talk about.
Fortunately for me I keep finding really really really good deals that i cant pass up cough cough* like when i bought the legacy series 60 litre engel , dropped it off to my mates place and told him to message me at 8pm whilst sitting on the couch with the mrs and tell me that his dad that works at engel has a fridge for sale for $500 bux .<<<<<------ Too good to pass up right ? lol

As for the rig yeah kinda obsessed with her as shes my pride and joy, So i always look forward to my next day or weekend out. I know it aint a patrol or cruiser but she does me wonders for now and have to admit for a triton does ok.

I bought her originally as a work rig but the more i spent on her the less i stopped wanting to use it for work.

May have to tea up a meet some time so i can head out with you soon.

Unfortunately guys they have shut off the intersection of deep creek 1,4 and 2. Just spoke to dse and they can't tell me when it will be opened so looks like we will have to give the deep creeks a miss

Did they give the reason why Antony?. There had been talk of making 1 & 4 seasonal closures along with a rumour or two of closing No.1 permanently but nothing eventuated.
05 Oct 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Well signs on the track say tree felling but speaking to dse they said they have had a few incidents recently (car catching fire and another one rolling) and they have deemed the tracks unsafe and are waiting on funds to fix the tracks. Am a bit confused though because it is only closed on bins rd end, can still drive 1 and 4 just can't get through the intersection
05 Oct 2015
Allan (Big Pig) Premium Member
Well that sucks a bit , still looking forward to getting out at night ,I don't do it much ,and also some good company around the camp fire, the stories and banter always sends my of to bed feeling better for the experience ,especially when Anthony starts talking about his secret love of all things Jeep.
05 Oct 2015
Allan (allanmac) Premium Member
Big Al, has always been an issue with the Deep Creek tracks. Has been numerous recoveries as well as the odd roll over and they did close it for awhile, but as usual, those in charge did not make it public knowledge. Rudi Polletti advised of the closure some time ago on various forums, but as there was no signs or gates, people continued to go there. Was the same after the big fires went through; whole areas was closed but due to lack of information people continued to go up there.

Fingers crossed, it will be re opened when you guys go up there; can tell you from previous experience that driving Deep Creek 1 in the dark is 'character building'.

If we stay the night at a hut , can it please not be" handjob cabin" hahaha.
07 Oct 2015
Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Haha did you see that to. We will be stopping at every hut trying to find it
07 Oct 2015
Alex (AlexPatrol)
Well I wont be going tail end charlie ......
07 Oct 2015
Allan (Big Pig) Premium Member
We will never be able to pass another hut without hearing the word handjob over the radio
07 Oct 2015
George (Georgie_Kyro)
whats this about handjobs ???
How do i justify this trip to the mrs when theres men , mountains and handjobs involved ???
Was going to be sleeping in my swag but now thinking Im safer in my roof top tent ! haha

Antony any more updates from the dse ?
Looking forward to this and meeting you fellas ;)

Just give everyone a heads up my winch decided to stop working today so if it is going to be wet next weekend il probably just hop in with my brother, if it's dry I will still take my car just with no winch

Oh I see whats happened here , the old switcheroony, one GQ out and one GQ in , the outgoing GQ I reckon I had covered however the incoming GQ is twin locked has a fancy new suspension setup and a great stonking 5.8 liter V8, I better bring my A game.
12 Oct 2015
Peter (GQ351C)
Oh hi Allan
I Can't wait to test out the new gear :)
12 Oct 2015
Alex (AlexPatrol)
Bye Luke..
:)
13 Oct 2015
George (Georgie_Kyro)
Pete what you done to that thing now ?
Alan, I need to bring my A game every time i head out with solid axle rigs!

Technically I am the least capable truck amongst you lot , somehow i think your jeep wont struggle though. ;)
13 Oct 2015
Nick (charger265)
Damn shame i could not commit to this trip at the start.. just got the girl back today... But still will be riding shotgun with george.
FYI george... dont worry i have not found a track yet where i could not follow a twin locked GU...So once i get your special gears in by friday we will be all set...

Nick, For starters, you really need to sort out that modification list on your vehicle profile, these people may think youre mental after viewing it with the claims you have made above!
As for the car Im glad to hear youve got it back and I look forward to the day we can actually head out in them together rather than always have one getting modified whist the other rides shotgun.
This morning I had a dream.... I never remember my dreams, I remember dreaming that my gears got here from South Africa today, so when i got your message this morning saying they were in your back seat you could just imagine how over the moon i was. Apparently the gear box and transfer are out and you will be working your magic on them tomorrow, so i look forward to getting my car back when that and the new rear suspension has been sorted.
Many thanks for your efforts buddy,
I am glad to be part of such a helpful community
Looking forward to meeting you all.
This is starting to look like a great trip already.
Georgie!

Hi George, I have replaced the entire suspension in the GQ with a 3" lift, dobinson springs, fox shocks and superior engineering radius arms with drop boxes and the correct upper and lower superior engineering control arms to suit.
This will be the first time 4wding since I replaced it all, so I'm kind of exited :D

Trip Leader Antony (Peloza79) Premium Member
Last fuel is at moe but as al said you won't need much and George the way my car has been going lately I think il be the underdog, who knows al might even out drive me (but I doubt it). Left a msg at the pub to book a table so hopefully that's all good and will speak to depi on Friday to see what's the go with deep creeks but I rekon we drive it anyway and just turn around where it's blocked off but will discuss it more over dinner. Will be at the bp @
Officer around 4/415 if anyone wants to head in together
14 Oct 2015
George (Georgie_Kyro)
I was meant to be meeting Al at his joint at 4.
If it suits him better i can always drive that little further and just make that the meeting point?
79 cruisers outdriving jk jeeps or the other way around?
Something tells me this is going to be a fun weekend.
Just make sure you both do better than me.
Cant have those rigs out done by a bloody mitsashitty ;)
14 Oct 2015
Peter (GQ351C)
George, I think you have had more goodies thrown into your Triton by the look of your modification list.
Antony, I'll meet up with you at the BP servo.
Can't wait :)
