E O I Border Track Night Run Sat 2•8•14

Dunno what happen to thread title but trip date is Saturday 2 . 8 . 14

With the Border track now open again after the fires Mac_man_luke and I are keen to do it at night and are looking for more vehicle's to join us.

Plan is to meet at Pinnaroo BP servo at 4.30pm , fuel up, quick feed and hit the track starting off the Mallee hwy by 5.15pm and hopefully make it thru to Red Bluff camp if all goes well for some shut eye.

Sunday would see us finish the remainder of the track and rejoining the Dukes hwy at Border Town.

So could be a long night or could be an easy night , all depends on the track conditions and how we fare on the night.

Bring your recovery gear,,rated straps and shackles, a long handled shovel, and maxxtraxx or treads if you have set.

What ever food and drink you feel you need, warm clothes and sleeping gear will be required also.

If you think you may like to join Luke and I for the BT night run feel free to reply to this thread.

Might be ok for that, will let you know.

Edit - Brian / Luke, you sound confident it's open again (fully ?) but the website still has the closed info up ?
Expect you've actually spoken to the rangers / park office ?

Just checking some options to get away.

Spoke to MHG on tuesday , he did it last weekend said all gates were open.
There was another post on earth here somewhere with a link saying it was open too.

Better double check.

I'm keen to come along done it several times on bikes it would be good to give it a crack with the car, unfortunately mate broke my maxtrax imitations so probably wont have a set of the real deal before then hope it's not too much of an hassle.
Also not sure if anyone else would be keen but maybe heading out earlier Saturday and doing some of the other tracks I know around there.

Hi Gaza, no probs mate, I'll add you to the list.

Nah no issue with the maxxtraxx ,, as long as you have a rated strap , shackle and shovel.

Could take the long way in like i did last year up from keith way through ngarkat, was some nice smooth sand tracks and a few nice dune climbs

but that would mean you might be tired of driving by the time we get to the BT :)

How long do you think it would take to reach Pinnaroo from that direction Luke, reason I ask is some may need to fuel up before hitting the bt.
Could be an option if not too time consuming.
