Hello there

I am a new member on this forum, but am not new to off-roading and 4WDs.
It all started when my father bought a 2nd hand Series II SWB Landrover in the mid 70's. From there, he progressed to a Series III LWB Landrover and I bought a Honda XL250 trailbike in 1975. My first 4WD was a new 1979 Daihatsu F20. This was replaced by a 2nd hand 1995 Feroza in 2000 and this has now been replaced by a new 2007 Jeep Cherokee CRD Ltd.

I have done a fair bit of exploring/camping around the greater Townsville area, including Mt Spec and Hervey Range, as well as central/northern QLD. In the late 70's we used to go camping at Lake Buchanan on Yarrowmere Station. In the 80's, we also visited places like Red Falls, but that has now been closed to the public. I have also been on some major road trips to places like Ayers Rock, Birdsville, Flinders Ranges, Mt Gambier, Tasmania and covered some of the Alpine regions of Victoria and NSW.
