This day trip will be a drive covering most of the compact Tallarook State Forest. Whilst I have rated this trip as 'medium', it will be suitable for people who have limited experience, who have never been to Tallarook before, or those who have, who are happy to have a reasonably easy day of enjoyable 4wding.
Those who are looking for the 'challenging stuff', such as Phone and Steep Tracks, dont bother joining or expressing interest in this trip.
All vehicles must have the following 'MINIMUM' requirements;
Low Range, so no SUV's.
30" A/T or mud tyres, NO H/T TYRES.
Basic Recovery Gear - Snatch Strap, Shackles etc. Winch is advantageous, but not mandatory.
UHF Radio - either incar or hand held.
Bring your lunch/drinks etc as plan is to stop at the dam for a short lunch break. There are no toilet facilities in the area we are driving. Please have enough fuel for the day to cover aprox 100 klms of mainly low range driving. Depending where you are coming from, fuel available in Yarra Glen or along the Hume Hwy.
CHECK IN. (Friday Feb 16th - midday at the latest)
As with all my trips, if you fail to 'check in' by the stipulated time to confirm your attendance, YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM TRIP. Also, if you are one of the many who regularly join a trip then pull out at the last minute, dont bother joining, as I will ask you to withdraw from the trip, ( I do have a list of those who do this and of those who fail to 'check in'.)
All going well, we will be back on the 'black top' by 4.30pm. Any questions' feel free to ask.
PLEASE NOTE: If weather is unfavourable re; too hot/total fire ban or extremely wet, the trip will be postponed till another date.
