Beginners Trip.

if you are new to the 4wding sene & you would like to gain some tips from the old stages, then you are welcome to join.

each group (if more than one?) will have a lead vehicle with an experienced driver and a tail end Charlie who will also be experienced. You will get advice on track ediquite, wheel placement, safety tips, use of a spotter, vehicle recovery, convoy procedures tyre pressures etc.

Meet at Glenburn Servo at 8.30 am for a 9am briefing & 9.15 departure. We'll stop for lunch at about 1pm at Luke's Creek Rd. Camp Ground so have your own food & drinks & banter on the ready.

we'll then hit the tracks again with full bellies & finish back at the Glenburn Servo at about 4.30. I will have some fun awards to give out at the end of the trip so make sure you head back to the Servo.

i will ring the Servo closer to the date (when numbers are finalised) to let them know that we are coming. They have burgers, bacon & egg rolls etc forbreaky in the morning........oh, we meet in the car park at the rear of the Servo.

For those of you who want to spread the weekend out a little longer, I will be heading up Friday night to camp at Luke's Creek Rd Campground. I will also camp on the Saturday night for a drive on some more challenging tracks on Sunday before heading home. You are welcome to join me.

I'll more than likely need experienced people to help out by leading groups & tail end Charlie's. I'd like to keep the groups to 10 vehicles or less

The tracks that we will be driving are reasonably easy however, I'm sure that Toolangi will throw up the odd challenge. Your vehicle should have A/T's or M/T's & bring any recovery gear that you have. If you're brand new, no worries as the more experienced among us will have all the gear including winches. Nobody will be left stranded on the tracks. 

Bring the whole family along to join in the fun. My two boys will be with me.

See you there!
