I have bought about 4 weeks ago a couple of handheld radios from Dickie's, so I'll bring them both in case someone wants to borrow one for the drive.



LOL @ forum software's censorship... When I quote it, it isn't censored, but I bet when it's re-displayed, it will be re-censored...

Sorry for that little bit of OT...

Spoke to Clare, and it's looking like we wont be going... Would be abit much of an ask to get up there, hang around for a short while, then head back in time for the engagement party, as we still haven't bought their present yet...

I'd still like to try and get up there, to meet some new faces and catch up with old ones (not saying any of you are old, of course!)

 emoticon I didn't even realise that my post was sensored and editted until I saw your's. That is quite funny, so I edited my post to stay out of trouble, as you know I'm a good "OLD" boy emoticon

Watagan Meetup Sat


Hi all. I was bored today and I owed my mum a drive out - so I took her for a drive to watagans in my xtrail.

You will see the map in the previous post and it has directions to the pioneer cemetery (our meeting point) I have chosen this as it is a central point for those coming from the north and south.

From Sydney the Wyong Turnoff is 60 klms on the F3. Today it took me about 1 1/2 hours from Harbour Bridge (in peak hour and fuel stop) Turn off is well signposted (just after the Ourimbah Weighbridge)

From the Northern and Southern Turnoffs in the map it takes less then 10 minutes to get to the meeting spot.

From Meeting point back to Freeway in the afternoon is about 100kms so fuel should not be a problem.

Track Conditions. Most of the trip is very easy hard dirt and two way forest trail. About 15 klms of it is dirt/flat rock - but nothing major (for example a small sedan can do it) Nothing hitting the car or underbody or even tricky)

Plan is to enter Watagans drive about 30 mins have a cuppa
Drive another 30-40 mins have lunch and check out some falls and walking trails
Drive another 15-20 min to check out Boarding House Dam (rockpools/falls and interesting trails)
Drive about 30-40 mins stop at Basin camp Ground
Drive out of watagans through Buketty/kulnura/peats ridge. Bid farewells to Northerners and head down Freeway

There is no food or shops so please byo

How long - today I entered watagans at 1030 and left park at 2.30 (on freeway at 3pm)
In marourbra at 4pm.

Mum and I stayed about 10-15mins at all places. So I think meeting up at 9 and allowing longer at lunch and other stops we will finish at about same time (ie freeway at 3 - 3.30.

For Rich. There are opportunities to get out earlier if you want to come and shoot off earlier.

I have tried to provide a mix of easy roads/ nice scenery and opportunities to stop/chat and look. If you haven't been there before - you will see a lot of places to go back for further investigation (and you will want to go back)

If you have a radio I will be on uhf channel 25 , but I only have a handheld.

If anyone is concerned about the map directions please let me know - they seem complicated but they are very simple to follow. However for those coming from the South . I will pull up on the side of the road about 300ms after the freeway turnoff at about 8.50 and hang around for a few minutes.

Otherwise, you have seen the map, read the book, now you need to see it.

BTW - has anyone yahooooooood

cheers
peter

Too bad you can't make it Richi.

You can get us on the radio if you're close-by emoticon

We'll take some photos for you and the rest of the group.

Re: Watagans Meetup Sat 25 Sept


I wish to thank Peter for a lovely day out and an excellent drive (with NO scratches found emoticon )

It's been really nice meeting some new faces in person, although we missed yet again our "Phantom xtrailer" onetonnesam who was missing in action for the 2nd time in a row from the meet-up (must have been a big night on Firday emoticon )

I can now proudly report that my xtrail has been restored to it's spotless condition emoticon

Just couldn't go to bed with the "Wash Me" sign at the rear glass, Thanks to Val it was an excellent reminder for me to wash it tonight emoticon

I'll be posting some photos on my web site soon and looking forward to your photos as well.

Finally, It's been great to meet a new member of our forums JD, who apparently was browsing our forums for quite some time now and keeping up to date with our progress.

Speak to you later guys.

Some good photos, and it looks like we missed a great day...

Peter's X-Trail photo # 2 looks like you have a bit of articulation there fro the front - did you take a side-view of that shot?

My favourite photo would have to be the "all lined up" one where everyone has their lights on. I wonder why emoticon
