    Deua NP to Wadbilliga

    This is the 3rd and final part of our trip. We finally found somewhere to camp since we ran WAY behind schedule. Cooked a Mars Bar Damper in the camp oven for dessert. Sunday was a really nice day and made for some very scenic footage. Unfortunately we found out that the best trail of the day...

    Deua NP - Oulla Creek Ft to Hanging Rock Lookout

    Oulla Creek Firetrail is a great alternative to driving the full length of Merricumbene Firetrail. Driving in the easterly direction is fun with a long loose climb being the most difficult. There is a nice creek at the end of the trail which would be a good spot to stop for lunch. From there you...

    Merricumbene FT, Dry Creek Campground and Oulla Creek FT - Deua NP

    We went back to the old faithful Merricumbene FT and managed to do a lot of filming on the main steep section at the very beginning. We took a different route once up on the ridge and turned down Oulla Creek Firetrail.

    Lithgow recovery after snapped CV shaft

    We recently spent a weekend in Lithgow (trip video is in the NSW Trip report Sub-Forum) and both the Discovery 4 and RG Colorado 7 came limping home. Lucky to drive home actually. The Disco got off lightly and cheaply, the Colorado did $1100 in parts and labour.

    Lithgow - Glow Worm Tunnel/Lost City and Ranger Bobs

    We headed for Lithgow a couple of weeks back. We left Canberra on Friday night and went looking for the couple of the camp sites out along the trail that heads to the Glow Worm Tunnel. We went straight past the first one and headed for Barcoo Swamp Campground. This was a mistake because the spot...

    Can I turn off 'Hill Start Assist'?

    Hi All, Wondering if anyone knows if Hill Start Assist can be turned off? I had some experiences on the weekend out bush where it engaged many times while I was trying to negotiate a very steep section of track. I needed some very delicate acceleration from a dead stop but with HSA didn't allow...

    Installing Dobinsons 50mm lift springs & struts on Holden Colorado 7

    Dad and I installed Dobinsons Adjustable Monotube 50mm lift kit in my Colorado 7. I struggled to find any suspension 'how to' videos on Colorados so I thought i'd make one myself. The most helpful part for mine is the part where it shows how to get the strut out from inside the upper and lower arms.

    Dobinsons Adjustable Monotube 50mm lift kit installation on Colorado 7

    I made a quick and simple video of our DIY installation on my Colorado 7. Overall lift was about 35mm in the front and 45mm in the rear. I plan to adjust the front up 10mm to get it sitting even.
