Wombat Sunday Run 2.0 MEDIUM

Wombat State Forest, VIC

See more trips

Planning another trip up Wombat / Lerderderg way. Will start with some hill climbs, continue with some mud and finish with deep ruts, creek crossing and hopefully finding some tracks I never explored before. Trip will begin East and end West if all goes to plan.

 
Recommended Setup
  • 32 inch muddies or aggressive A/T (nothing less and no HT)
  • 2 inch lift or you will do more damage than you should.. and might bottom out on some places
  • WORKING WINCH is a Must just in case.
  • Front and Rear recovery points
  • Extensive Recovery Kit in good condition (Snatch strap, extension strap, snatch block, dampener, shackles etc)
  • Snorkel if we find deeper creek towards the end of trip (this will require some hunting and driving some unknown tracks if were up for it on the day and if we are making good time)
I will be following some tracks from previous trips but will veer off into the unknown towards end of trip (if we have enough time to) hoping to find some good spots I saw on youtube. Managed to get generic areas where such things are.. but we need to explore the area HOPING to find them, hence convoy will be a small one as we might need to do a few u-turns etc (mostly towards the end of the trip, depending what time we get into the area).. this will be a bit of a recce one (please be prepared for this, don't want people complaining about this.. we might find some good stuff, we might not)
 
We will be doing a shallow creek crossing that I did last time, and possibly a deeper gnarlier creek crossing (if we find it towards the end of the trip). Snorkel WILL be required for the deeper crossing.
 
Wombat is always a good challenge and you should not be disappointed if you love 4wding. I never went back home with a clean car and disappointed. Hoping for it to be a solid day of 4wding. Please note that pin stripes and vehicle damage may occur. Last trip we had a Landcruiser break an axle on one of the obstacle.. so please be prepared as Wombat is unpredictable.
 
This trip will be a mix of rocky climbs (easy in dry, much harder in wet), mud (most bogs have rutted muddy chicken tracks) - be ready to get your car dirty. If mud is not really your thing, this might not be your kind of trip. I won't be tackling waist deep bog holes - but mud will be thrown around for sure.
 
Be prepared and read description properly so you won't be disappointed. This trip will have it's challenges and should be good fun - should be fairly ok with good tyres and dry tracks. All goes to plan we will cross the whole wombat / lerderderg east to west through tracks. Vehicle DAMAGE MAY OCCUR - come at your own risk and you are solely responsible for your car.
 
PS: People who joined my last trip in Winter and Rob's trip a few weeks back - we will be driving mostly a mix of those tracks (some in reverse) with some different tracks in between.. so if you want to come again, you are welcome to but be prepared to drive similar tracks as previously.
 
Also hoping for dry weather. If it's too wet, trip might be cancelled as all the climbs will become quite hard and I have a 2 week road trip after this so don't want to break my car.
