Trip Summary

Medium/Hard - For experienced drivers with well setup 4wds. You may tackle some difficult tracks with steep and/or rocky/slippery/sandy track and/or river crossing sections. IMPORTANT: Vehicle damange may occur. Please make sure you are prepared for this.

With most track seasonal closures finished, will head up to Toolangi to drive my usual loop of the area. All going well tracks will include Rocky, Lyndalls, Martins, Campsite, Downies, Lukes, Cockpit and possibly Blowhard. Before you join and/or express interest in this trip, please note the following criteria that is non negotiable.

 

MINIMUM VEHICLE/DRIVER REQUIRMENTS.:

Tyres- 32" (preferably mud). All vehicles MUST have a winch and basic recovery gear (snatch strap/shackles etc), UHF radio & rated recovery points.

Drivers must be experienced as this is NOT a trip for 'newbies' or those with limited experience.

Also, if you are someone who loves playing in mud/bog holes etc, do not join, as on my trips we avoid both unless we have no option.

 

As with all my trips, confirmation that you are attending is required, so all drivers must 'CHECK IN' and in this case cut off time will be midday on Saturday Nov 3rd. If you do not check in, you will be removed from the trip and someone else given the opportunity to take part.

 

From our meeting place in Yarra Glen, I expect to cover aprox 100 klms on the day, (high percentage in low range), so ensure you have enough fuel for the day. All fuel types are available in Yarra Glen. We will have a short lunch break during the day, so bring you lunch/drinks etc with Yarra Glen having 2 good bakeries to purchase these items if need be. At this stage I am limiting number to 4 as I am saving 2 spots for 'regulars', (the 2 Matts), and if they do join the trip with it limited to 4 , I will increase numbers to 6.

 

Any questions, feel free to ask.

 

PS: If we have heavy rain leading up to the day, I may postpone the trip to another date.
