Inter-Forum Gathering

Well, it was a earlier start than normal and I was sure the stragglers were way behind me. But the lure of a cooked breakie at 2 bucks each was enough to get everyone out of bed early and poor old FOS was left with the trip report. We gotta do that cook breakie more often, I will sleep out at the meeting point next time.

There was a lot of chatter, hand shaking and interaction between the members and newbies while Mike cooked sausages/ bacon/eggs for the hungry mob and Tanika and Brody ran around selling raffle tickets.  Final count 8 Members & 8 Visitors.

With a full belly, we kicked off from Toodyay about 10.00 am heading  west... or was it north? 10 kms down  the black stuff, we turn right.... or was it left...... Mike was already demographically challenged not knowing where to turn off (even though he and bigCol had done a reccy out there a week ago)

Once off road, we zigged and zagged, did several U turns, found a bog hole so Mike could show the newbies what a V8 Nissan Patrol could do, snatched a newbie outta the bog, drooled over hill climbs that would be a treat after a couple of inches of rain, a couple of more U turns and eventually found our way back to the black stuff about 4.00pm.

Conclusion: This was a ripper of a day and the cooked breakie was a winner .

Where'd all the water go outa the Mudpits  ???

Must say I didn't think you'd be back in there after last time Mike

If it's Tourist Season why is it illegal to shoot 'em?.

They were bone dry when we did the recce 2 weeks ago

Nowhere near as deep as last time and I did a depth check first (egged on Nowoolies young bloke to go in first lol) Is still pretty firm too as there hasn't been alot of activity up there. Would have stayed well clear if it had been like it was when we were last there

well, we had a great turn out this morning, must have been the promise of Bacon & egg sandwiches that did that



a few of the contestants





letting Poor old Toodyay know we were in the neighbourhood


out there "somewhere"




and some dodgy looking fella when he got home



I think a great day was had by all..........

and I think a "re-visit" of this trip further into winter WILL be the GO

cheers

DID YOU KNOW......Great Northern Highway links Western Australia's capital city Perth with its northernmost port, Wyndham. With a length of almost 3,200 kilometres (2,000 mi), it is the longest highway in Australia

Agreed. Was a great day out.
Here are a few pics we got. If anyone wants full res shots, let me know and i can e-mail them to you.

Looking forward to heading out again. Unfortunately it probably wont be until i'm back from a three week trip to Exmouth, and Shark Bay.

Cheers,

Richard

Hehehehe, you gotta go back and try it when the bog holes are full... Eeeeeeyeeeeeewwwww... its only about grade 2 out there at the moment.

Some of the Creek flats are a good test come mid to late winter

and did Mike show you Puckerup Hill? Thats an 'interesting' descent in the wet if they haven't put a blade over it  :o

Think I'd rather try and go up it first lol.............. and as far as those bog holes are concerned, there's 4 things I think I'll need first - lift, 33" tyres, snorkel and definitely some confidence

Momentum is a great substitute for confidence... if you go real fast you a) cant stop and b) just might come out the other side maybe 50% of teh time.

By the way, did youse find any number plates... we always loose one and find one... its a Club tradition... but interestingly we have never found any of the ones we have lost
