Brisbane X-trail 4X4 run


Hi all,

It's nearly been a year since the last 4bie trip for SE Queenslanders so I thought I'd organise one for Saturday August 5th 2006.

About this time last year we went out to Diana's Bath way and surrounding hinterlands of the Mt Mee/Kilcoy/Somerset and had a great time discovering 4X4 tracks around the area.

They’re mainly dirt tracks that will let you discover what the X-Trail is capable of without too much danger of injury or accident. Furthermore, it’s not that hard on the vehicle (not much crashing around etc). You can find photos from the last run here:
BRISBANE MEET UP # 5 (03/09/05)

At this stage I have a mate coming with a brand new V8 Landcruiser and possibly one with a Landrover Defender just in case we (or they) need a bit of a hand out.

To do this trip you’ll need to obtain a FREE permit which I can be obtained from this link (please get it ASAP):
Permit to traverse with a motor vehicle (Application Form)

We intend to meet at Toombul Shopping Centre carpark at 7:15am and we’ll go from there.

Feel free to PM me for my contact details or more information if required.

If you intend to come please let me know so I can have an idea of the numbers.

It’s gunna be a blast!

Danny

Re: Brisbane X-trail 4X4 run


Have seen the pics from previous trip and looks fun to me. Have just had our TI now for 3 weeks (trying to convince the wife to take it off road) but unfortunatly dates don't work for us. If a new trip happened in the future even though we live in CENTRAL QUEENSLAND would stil be interested in attendinding if the dates were right...

Hi Raw,

It's shame the dates don't work for you but I'll certainly post again when another run comes up in the future.

Re: Brisbane X-trail 4X4 run


Well it looks like I can come, I know, hold your applause. After much hard talking, it looks like I'll be allowecd to come for a bit if fun.
I am trying to convince a mate of mine to come along as well, he has a Ford Explorer, he's a big scaredy cat but I am hoping I may be able to shame him into it. We have both sent of for the permit for Mt Mee, I hope this is the right place to go for?

Thanks and see you on the day. Let us know if it is cancelled for any reason.

That’s great Jamie,

With you and your mate coming along that will just about pull us up for numbers. Anymore and it could be a little difficult keeping everyone together – especially if four-wheel-drivers start coming from the opposite direction.

That will give us:
3X X-Trails
1X Landcruiser
1X Landrover Defender
1X Ford Explorer

That’s good range of vehicles and if it has been raining we’ll get a good creek crossing in.

I will see you at the Toombul Shopping Centre car park at 07:15am where we will head to Dayboro for breakfast at the bakery.

We’ll head up the track from there for a day of fun! Also, bring a bit of lunch because, as you know from last trip, it’s an all day trek and there’s nothing to buy along the way.

Well that will teach me to log on more often, I only just realised tonight Danny that you had left me a message regarding this. Bit late now. By the way, is the runboard site suppose to send you an e-mail advising a message has been left?

Yes, you should get an email notification alerting you to a PM in your inbox, but that of course if your primary email address doesn't block Runboard notifications.

Teach me too! - though the date did not suit either, I would be interested in another trip or details of the route would be great.

Have taken the EXY up duck creek road to o'reilly's and tried around mt nebo but couldn't get any where. Am keen to try more easy dirt.

Re: Brisbane X-trail 4X4 run


Hi all, you missed a great day

I total we had 3 Xtrails, a Ford Explorer, a Landcruiser Sahara and a 60 series Landcruiser.

Our trip was out of the 'Dirty Weekend' book and starting from Daybro we made our way towards Woodford. We thought for awhile we were going to have to recover one of the lancruisers but unfortunately one of the EXY's come a cropper and needed some help on the last hill of the day.

We have done this track at Mt Mee before and one section A Break is red in the book and really challenged the Xtrails but we all got there in the end. It is a bit eroded since the last trip as well so we had to be on our toes.

The Ford Explorer driver was on his maiden run off road and as nervous as he was at the start of the day, he took on every challenge and pulled through and thoroughly enjoyed himself as did everyone else.

A great day, thanks Danny for organising this and looking forward to the next trip.

Tony and Lloyd, if you would like to PM me with your email address, I will send you an email next time we plan something, that goes the same for anyone else who may want to be included in future trips.


To quote Danny on the day -
quote:

I am constantly amazed at what the Xtrails can do



I did not get many pics on the day (Sorry Des & Bev) hopefully Danny may be able to follow up with a few if he can get time to post a trip report. I was pleased to be able to look at the 'home made' snorkel set up on Des's car but this left me cursing that I am not as handy as that so I could give it a go, well done - great job Des.

It was an absolute pleasure meeting all the new faces and hope to meet all of you again, real soon.
