was a good day
drove tobins ridge track/fenceline
a few side tracks
didn't end up finding the top of tunks :bad-words: really wanted to drive it
so we back tracked & went down Lemontree & turned onto big jilliby &made our way down to the bogholes @ the bottom only to find the bridges rotten & creaking under foot so went back through the bog holes & up the ruts then once back to *****ly ridge the resr of the group went & did the link rd between sawpit & branch rds while I turned up towards muirs lookout & did a few easy side tracks as a solo vehicle went over to 5 ways & drove greens break where I nearly put the GU on it's side taking the wrong line through the ruts up the top.

damage report:
guy in ferozza: cracked front diff housing(we're now going to call that short side track daihatsu hill)

OGJON: LH rear flare ripped off, twisted LH corner of rear bumper & got a small stick in the bead of drivers wheel, it's still holding air atm.


A big thanx to all the guys & gals who came for a run you're all top blokes/gals look forward to wheeling with you again, next time we'll have to go do froghollow & drury lane then do tunks fire trail from the bottom.

Hi,

As OGJON said we did the top side track of sawpit - I put a dent in the left rear qtr panel. We then did CPT80 with the lux doing a CV on the hill climb out - it's getting quite bumpy from about half way up. I got through all the mud holes at the bottom of CPT80 - very happy. There used to be a side track after the mud but the tree has been cleared and you can go up the cutting now - got a wheel a long way up the right side before reversing and doing a better line.

Got onto tar about 7:30pm - a good day indeed - just need more pics..... :)

thinking of going back down big jilliby FT & try to find a way to cross the creek from what I saw it looked fairly drivable, really want to know where the rest of the track goes.
