Re: Trips in Vic


Just as a matter of interest, it might be worth keeping an eye on the CFA and DSE fire reporting sites.

I'm informed that it's down to around 6% moisture level on the forest floor out there.

I'll have a nextg modem and a laptop with me so I'll be able to keep track if required.

Re: Trips in Vic


Hey guys,

What's happening in 2009 as far as weekend trips in Vic? I'm in Norther suburbs of Melbourne, and am really keen to get out and see what my machine can do. I can't believe that there still hasn't been a Victorian X-trail Forum event. High time we organise one I say!

Is anyone up for a trip sometime in March 09 perhaps? I know this seems like a long way away, but we seem to be booked up with weddings in Jan and Feb. I'm thinking something within weekend range of Melbourne. I don't have a lot of 4x4 experience, so certainly up for suggestions???

If we can get a few people interested, then perhaps we could start showing those NSW members that we have some serious X-trailers down this way! emoticon

Re: Trips in Vic


Hi Stu,
         Have a look at the brief trip report i made in that section under Toolangi Day Trip. If this takes your fancy then you might like to join us in the future. Perhaps we could start gathering some ideas of a destination. End of Feb or March would be a good time. If we camped out for the night perhaps either Black range state forest (around Narbethong and Buxton) or Rubicon / Cathedral ranges area (Rubicon and Thornton).

I will sus out some ideas with the club. Any sugestions are welcome. emoticon

Re: Trips in Vic


Sounds good johnsey. I'd certainly be interested to come on an AWD club trip sometime. Hopefully I'll have my own collection of basic recovery gear by then. emoticon

I'm heading off on a weekend adventure with some other friends around Mt Stirling / Mt Buller area next weekend (probably camping somewhere around Sheepyard Flat). They have a Hilux, so I should be safe if I get into trouble, and need some help getting out.

I'll let you know how it goes, and how well it suits the Exy's capabilities (as well as my own). I'd also be keen to check out the Otways, Lerdederg, Angahook, etc.

Cheers.

Re: Trips in Vic


I haven't explored the area between Mansfield and Mt Sterling etc in my Exy yet. As you said there is a lot in this area around Jamieson, Sheepyards flat, Craigs hut and even around Mt samaria to the north a little. You are welcome any time to come to one of our clubs monthly meetings and see how things run. A couple of our members are around the Mill park/ South Morang area which may be close to your location.

I have quite a few of the Rooftops maps so it may be worth noting which tracks are suitable for us on your camping weekend.

Cheers ,
           Anthony. emoticon

Re: Trips in Vic


I'm quite keen to organise a Vic trip, however most places I go are two or three day trips.

I have some leave to book after xmas, so I'll go scout a few places after the silly season and post some pics.

Hmm it appears my previous post was deleted, and with no notification or justification.

I guess my suggestions were not welcome.

Re: Trips in Vic


Were they trip suggestions which you had in mind? Am thinking about a day trip perhaps in the Yarra state forest shortly after the new year is upon us. This will be a small group with around 5 or 6 vehicles max. This trip would not be an AWDC trip ie a forum event organised by myself with suggestions from other willing participants.

Grading will most likely be easy with a couple of medium sections, most likely i will include tracks around Powelltown which i have driven before. Some which i haven't done may also be planned. A small group would allow an easy shuffle if we had to turn back on any unsuitable sections. Any suggestions welcome. I will be unavailable on Thurs 8th - Sat 10th of Jan, Back to work on the 12th. First weekend in Jan to wed 7th would fit in well.

Please don't make assumptions and wild guesses. A few posts got lost last night across Runboard due to a server problem, chances are yours was one of them.

To be honest, I didn't see your post at all.

Re: Trips in Vic


Understood.

However I did review the message after posting and it did appear. The message shows in my recent posting list. Forgive the assumption, but it did appear as the most logical explanation, as in normal conditions if a form message fails to post, it does not normally appear in my recent posting list.

But as you say, things go wrong occasionally.
