Let your tyres down and lets get dirty!

Weekdays, weekends or camping in the region. When do you want to go? From Bega to Batemans Bay, and Tumut to Thredbo. Where do you want to go?

Who's interested ? What do ya say?

Had a great run across the Murray today at Tom Groggin, but looking for more in the area. Not sure what the crossing is normally like, it was 600mm deep and flowing quite quickly(it was tricky to walk across). If you know of more in the Jindabyne area, I'd be keen to tag along tomorrow, or benifit from any ideas you may have. We leave on Sat so tomorrow is the only option.
Cheers.
Clough.

G'day Clough, sounds like fun. I'm looking around that area as well but a days notice is a bit tight.

xf087, I'm interested in day trips mostly. A bit of looking around some of the local forests (Pierces Creek etc) would suit me. Up into the Brindies, Mount Ginini or Flea Creek is always fun. No more than a couple of hundred km's and home for happy hour. Further south near Jindabyne would need a bit more organising for me, as would west around Bendethra and the coast.

Weekdays for the next two months are better for me as I work most weekends. Luckily I have some control and can change things if I'm tempted enough. My truth is that it's no fun going alone, or wise for that matter. I don't need big trips; just the chance to select 4 low and explore. I don't want tracks that need diff lockers, muddies and a lift; that just scares the minister for war and finance ...

..depending on ... what the minister for war says ........

Family friendly trips! Bring her along (and any little xf087's). My wife loves it (4wding) and is encouraging me now to explore, on my OWN! WHY? I hear you cry. So I know where to take her later ... and camp ... alone ...

I'm thinking of doing a coast run mid January (15-17) and have a look for some beach camping spots from Ulladula to Bermagui. Let me know if you're around.

Is the Paj okay?

Thanks mate, they're all on the list :rolleyes: We've been exploring the Brindabellas but haven't gone much further afield ... Micalong and Long Plain might be next.

Twisty,

Next time you are heading out, let me know. Usually free for day drives or overnighters on weekends.

Hopefully we can meet up and get exploring around here.

g'day toddster. might be we need to organise a canberra chapter meetup soon. it seems there will be a region sub forum as well, so keep an eye open for that.

I'd like to do a day trip soon, well, more a reliability test after some recent work. A short run to, say, Flea Creek then McIntyres Hut and back via Dingi Ridge and Blue Range Rd. I've done it before and know my way, just want to do the next run with others around. About 5 hours round trip from Uriarra (from memory) including 2 stops.

The problem is, when?

G'day Adricat. yeah ... that's the problem, I work next weekend and have promised the Minister a visit to the 4wd spectacular the following Sunday.

How about Sunday Feb 19th (a suggestion only). This would give others a bit of time to organise. I would be keen on doing a recce earlier, but it would need to be a weekday.
