Thought I'd share some of the video and photos from the weekend. First one is just a sort of 'tour' of the park from the entry gate to the bottom camp.

Saturday we went for a little bit of an explore around the park. Found some tracks through the paddocks around the creek. Including one rocky little decent

Then found a little creek crossing with a slippery climb out. I think this was the same one in the video of Harley slipping around a bit.

On sunday we went exploring and ventured up the Lees Pinch lookout in Goulburn National Park.



Then we went down to Ferntree Gully back towards Rylstone. This place is basically a rainforest in the middle of country NSW. Pretty amazing. Even saw a lyre bird.


And of course it goes without saying the camp fire at night time


My dog decided a sleep on my chair nice and close to the fire would be a good idea. Then I think it was Maureen (correct me if I'm wrong) that decided he needed a beanie. Heres the result


I've got a few more photos and videos to come and will post in the next couple of days.

Thanks again to Darren and Lisa for organising and for everyone who attended making it a great weekend away.

Was going to upload some footage but I let the smoke out of my laptop ( it died ). Not to worry footage will be coming.l
Cheers to Darren and Lisa for organizing the event and thank you to everybody who gave me advice whilst wheeling.

Cheers Harley

Yep mate looks like the same slippy hill to me as well after checking some of my vids. Great clips mate :)

Thanks for your patience and advice Harley mate - Both you and Jason were awesome for teaching me the ropes and great advice :)

Thought I would share another couple of videos. These were of the same rocky descent and creek crossing but shot from outside the car. There is a steep gully just before the rocky descent and obviously it was steep enough to grab the rear bumper. Oh well tucked it back in. Nothing a plastic welder won't sort out.

You can see about 3/4 the way up this slippery bit I ran out of traction. Just kept the wheels spinning and eventually the braked limited slip diff kicked in and gave me a little bit of extra traction.
