Day trip around Maryville and Narbethong, taking on some of the 'fun' tracks.
- Dom Dom Creek Tk (Just a warm up)
- Strickland Spur (Some rocky pitches)
- Woods Lookout Tk (Steep rock ledges)
- Joe's Spur (Rutted bottom half that is open)


You will require mud tyres and a winch, I recommend at least 33s just to make the day go smoothly, it's been pretty wet out there and the tracks may have seen a bit of use over winter!

Have rated this as a Medium Hard trip (as I assume it will be wet, only a mild medium in the dry) that should have us home before dinner (lunch will be on the run).

Hi all, the latest weather update for Saturday in the region.

Cloudy. High (80%) chance of showers in the east, medium (50%) chance elsewhere. Snow falling above 900 metres. The chance of a thunderstorm in the morning and afternoon. Possible hail.

Make sure your winches are working and you have some good tyres!
Could be interesting....

As I don't like sleeping when the sun is up, especially on the weekends I will be leaving earlier enough to stop for breakfast at the Beechworth bakery in Healesville about 8.30, it's also a good place to pick up something for lunch, see you all Saturday.

wow.... epic line up......... V8 Jeep vs V8 GQ! .....

Trip Leader Eddie (Tonka)
Given the weather and the vehicles coming, I have updated this to a HARD trip.
First few tracks will be easy, but then we will get stuck into Narbethong and there are a few surprises....
If you are not confident for a hard trip, no harm in not attending, but warning has been given!
If you have a chainsaw, pack it, as there might be some trees down with the storm.

Be sure to call us when you're stuck Kelvin... :)

Remember when you put the TREXGQ on its side in Narbethong last time we were there? :D

Haha I certainly remember..... I spilled my coffee all over........ never listen to Jamie's suggestion again! "Hey Kelvin, why don't you flex your suspension for a good photo shot?"

Any chance of adding another space if no one else pulls out Ed? I'll join the trip, last minute if need be.

Hey mate, 6 is more than I happy with but allowed it due to the popularity of the trip, I would rather 3 or 4. Won't push it to 7, sorry. There is usually a last minute cancellation so keep your eyes peeled

Trip Leader Eddie (Tonka)
If you haven't checked in, can you please.
Trip updated to Hard, we're going to play in Narbethong and get amongst it!

Also, let's plan to roll out at 9.30am, so air down and ready to go, so aim to get there 9.15am (Or if you are Al, get there at 7am, drive all the tracks once as a recce then meet the group). :D

WITHDRAWN from Trip - Reason: Please take us off the list and hopefully our withdrawal opens the door for someone else to attend.
We are not really wanting a hard trip,at this stage.
Hopefully we can get on a medium trip soon.
Have fun, stay safe

No problem I understand. With all this rain and the vehicles going it was probably always on the harder end of medium even if dry!
There will be another.
