Anyone around North Brisbane doing any 4wdriving on Sunday 18/12/2022 around North Brisbane/Caboolture/Glasshouse area. Haven't been 4wdriving for ages. Since moving to Brisbane 5 years ago, I haven't had much chance to go 4wdriving. I don't really know any places to go.

I did regular 4wdriving around Byfield and 5 rocks (Yeppoon area) when I lived in Rockhampton. My car is a GU RD28 with winch, 3 inch lift, muddy 33's,

G'day @RoBoCoP
I'd go with you if I wasn't in Victoria for Christmas.

My young fellow and I go out into Glasshouse with @y b normal . He's always keen to get out amongst it and knows his way round too.

Good luck

My brother knows the Caboolture - Glasshouse area really well, however he couldn't go.

Could also go on Monday 19th or Tuesday 20th.

I'm always keen to get out, but chrissy isn't a good time, plus I'm struggling a little with lingering covid, fatigue & headaches.....
And I just got 8 stitches in my thumb.....
But I finish work for the year on Tuesday and then I'm up for a day trip anytime.

But beware....I don't hold back.....😁

That's ok. I've done some stuff in the past like bending the chassis on a Patrol, losing tail lights, fan blades in a water crossing.

So when are any of you available.

I do shift work and Tuesday 3/01/23 is my next available date to be able to hit the tracks. I would go between xmas and new year but my partner doesn't want any part of 4wdriving.

I'm off camping from 29th to 6th. My missus isn't interested either. 4wding is a guy thing...apparently.

Saturday 21st?
I'll check, I promised my son a day fishing this weekend, & I keep my promises.
He should be OK to go Sunday.

Yep. Saturday is good.
My son is happy to go fishing on Sunday.
As long as we don't get too much more rain.
I've been able to change my work. So Saturday will be good for a run now.

Meeting point: I was thinking 8am at Big Fish servo/Red Rooster on Pumicestone Road.

The usual meeting place is the glasshouse Mountains lookout. The tracks are just a few minutes away. Big fish, Pumicestone Rd will be a 10+ or so minutes drive.
Another option is twin view rd.
Probably closer to some more serious stuff.
Or, if you watched old 4wd action DVD's,
The famous Watson's entry, is a cracker of a starting point.
