Re: road trip - road trip - road trip


Rich,

You can always drop-out and head back earlier if you want, but that's up to you and Clare of course.

I don't think I'll be able to drive for the whole day either with kids in the car, so I might drop-out earlier than the rest of the group anyway. It all depends on how long the trail is and what sort of road is it (i.e. is it similar to the Nowra trip or easier, dusty or not..etc)

Sorry Pete I don't have the 4WD book to refer to for this type of information.

I have only found one link that described this root (an Xtrail was part of the convoy as well) and by the sound of it, it's harder than the Nowra one, but I could be mistaken.

Re: road trip - road trip - road trip


had a look at the link, I can only gather that they went on the side tracks. My suggestion was to go straight through on the main road. Its dirt but nothing hard or anything. Its very much a two wheel drive.
I was also going to try and make it a shorter route to allow for more stopping time, (the aim of a get together rather then 4wd trip) There are a couple of good places to stop that kids would enjoy.
As I said its dirt, but quite wide (no parting tiny bush tracks). The trip details at the link are not the main road.
cheers
Peter

Sounds good and easy enough Pete, my aim is to get together as well rather than the full on $WD adventure.

As long as I don't have to spend a week washing my car afterwards and buffing it from scratches am fine emoticon just kidding.

Re: road trip - road trip - road trip


just had another look at that link, and it is not the main track. If we met at wyong turn off at 9am that would mean Syney people leaving at about 7, it would allow time for any others still to get there and get back early if needed. It doesnt worry we to start later if needed.
there may be dust but I cant see scratches being an issue at all, the track is two way.
On that just spent a few days cutting back and polishing up my patrol (oh and got windows tinted) it looks great. Nissan washed my trail today as well - cleanest it has been in a long time
cheers
Peter

Dust! Oh no, I'm out, can't afford another body throttle problem again (just kidding)

Looking forward to seeing some shots of your super clean xtrail and patrol on your web site or here Pete emoticon

Have you had your exy serviced by nissan or you just decided to take it there for a wash? emoticon

Hi all
Sorry that I havnt posted more about Sat 25 Sep drive. I have - still am - down with flu. I have to go away this weekend but will post something on Monday about good spots to meet up. But as no one has objected probably still go for a 9am start.
And probably in the vicinity of the Wyong Turnoff (first from South) rather then venture into town.
cheers
Peter

Re: road trip - road trip - road trip


Hi Guys,

According to my calculations we have 6 confirmed xtrails going to this trip and 1 unconfirmed. (sorry if I've left someone out)

Confirmed:

Pete (The Leader)
myself
Onetonnesam
Sexy Rexy
Suikalo
dviv

Unconfirmed:

Richi

This should be an excellent opportunity to meet-up with some members face to face and have to some fun driving.

I have bought about 4 weeks ago a couple of handheld radios from "EDIT" D. Smithies (just to avoid getting into trouble with the forum software and you guys getting the wrong impression emoticon ), so I'll bring them both in case someone wants to borrow one for the drive.
