well everyone this is official.. there is no longer anything at the glass house mountains..
what hasnt been bulldozzed aka all the forest has either been washed away by floods or has been filled in or is now become unstable..

all tracks from widow maker ie at the bottom of the firetower.. are all now justas bad as thewidow its self.. the bottom has drops just to get to a small track down there that only some of the toughest guys would find some what to the extreme.

power line track/s are some what HOLLOW!! it may seem to be fine, BUT under ground has been washed away so be careful out there for a while.
the funny thing is there is NO water or no mud in the mud pit ( s bend ) any more.. there is hardly anything there.

what hasnt been destroyed by trees and debrees is either land filled by the state forestrie authorities with rocks ect. theentire place has been shut down and only signed at one entry ( the one wer exited from today)
there is really nothing to do there now.

worth a look, atm all our fun has been washed away


but FYI therewas some excitement ata few tiny things today :) so lets hope for the best

well not sure where you went but its not exactly "glass house" nomore.. and if i can remember correctly when you and your other mate in his gq ute came out with me many many months ago you would even do anything on the power lines let alone hill climbs.
if you cant tell what water wash is compaired to driving tracks mabey best not to try yea..

just stating, its changed alot. but like i said not sure where you went but there was NO one there today..

Luke the reason most people are staying out could be because Forestry asked them to when this current weather event really kicked in before Christmas. I'm keen as to get in myself but have been holding off, but if the Mud Mile is dry then GH is good to go.

Will be interesting to see how it is now but about 6-8 weeks ago it was already pretty ripped up by the last storms we had through - the washouts were so bad then that Adoom got stuck at the Wall at the bottom of Henneseys and we had quite a job to winch him out. Normally he'd have just blitzed it.

But that's the beauty of Glasshouse, it is literally different every time you go, not a place you can get complacent at if you want to get back out!

that has changed all again now, I have driven it since then, then went and drove up ho chi min with benos and his mates, I also seen pics of Jas doing it a few weeks ago when it was REALLY wet
little red is still little red, I have done it after all the rain (then reversed down cause my mate wouldnt do it :cool: )
