Re: Victorian members


Adam,

It is an All Wheel Drive and they have xtrails there as well. Most of xtrail members over there are members of our forum.

Re: Victorian members


Actually, we currently have only 2 xtrails in the our club and i'm the only one which has a username on this forum. The last 2 years has seen a serious decline in our club membership due to the fact that only a couple of us are running trips. I believe this is caused by the majority of members expecting everything to be handed out on a platter, and or also the fact that many people still see softroaders as vehicles which are good for the ocassional gravel road use only.

Our industry is dominated by the use of vehicles which have low range gearing, which is perfectly understandable so those who venture into the wilderness alot would choose this type of vehicle over ours.

Re: Victorian members


For those wishing to know about the Neerim South club trip, it will be on Sunday 21st March. I will be attending the trip in another vehicle as my windscreen suffered some damage due to hail storms and is not getting assessed until after this date. The car is drivable but i don't want to take it offroad and subject it to any further stresses until repaired.

We will be doing some offroad driving followed by a mid afternoon stop at Blue Roch Dam for some fishing and relaxing.

Anyone interested can send me a PM and i will provide the details.

Re: Victorian members


Hi Guys,
           I'm currently taking a break from the All wheel drive club, but i would in the future like to see some forum events being run. I have spent most of my offroading in the eastern areas of Melbourne around Neerim South, Yarra State forest and Toolangi State forests. I'm interested in mostly easy to medium tracks with nothing too steep or rutted, and would consider vehicles with standard ride height and tyres to be able to attend without any worries. Perhaps a day trip could be run in the spring months.

Let us know on any destinations or ideas. emoticon

Re: Victorian members


I'm looking at doing a day trip after Christmas or into the new year, most likely to the east of Melbourne. An easy going sight seeing trip was what i had in mind, possibly in the Bunyip state forest or a trip from Noojee to Wood's point and return, either back to Noojee or via Warburton.

Will be travelling mostly gravel roads, tend to stay away from steep rutted sections these days. Those with limited offroad experience are encouraged to come and explore the great outdoors.

Any ideas are welcome, let us know and we can build a plan.

Regards,
Anthony.

Re: Victorian members


Put me down for a maybe, depending on dates etc.

What sort of tracks are you looking at doing?

I just had a look at the Parks Victoria page and they say all 4wd tracks are closed due to storm damage.

Cheers,

Adam

Re: Victorian members


Hi Adam,

I intend to travel on the main gravel roads which have a solid base, no point trying to take the exy on a rutted and boggy track and stick within it's capabilities. The main gravel roads are usually open most of the year, except if land slides or trees have fallen in extensive sections.
 Sometimes there may be a few shallow pot holes or soft spots due to rain but nothing that puts us or our vehicles in any dangerous situations.

I'm not sure on dates as yet, if there are any that you are free on let us know. Any other suggestions on destinations within forested areas are welcome.
