short notice trips

I thought it'd be great to have a thread where people can get together at short notice. If you're as keen as I think you are, RDOs, sickies, wife's outta towns, etc. are all good reasons to head out ASAP. This often leaves you short handed cos your mates aren't 'sick' too. So shout out for a 'short notice mate' here.
Short notice trips won't have much back and forward banter, so the thread can continue and work off the 'last update'. From my experience on other sites, this topic gets a lot of movement, so give it a go!
Happy cruising.

I'm always up for a cruise on a Wed or Thurs if anyone else is free mid week. I only need short notice.

Is anyone heading out this Sunday 20th October? I was heading out to Wombat but my mates truck isn't doing too well. Anyone want to explore Wombat or got something better to offer?

Once work slows down Wednesday or Thursday works for me. Will keep an eye out.
Maybe this thread should become a sticky.

Hey Shep,
I haven't done around the Otways before, have you? If so, I'm happy to tag along with you. If you haven't, would you be happy to cruise around Wombat? I was thinking Sunday. Others are welcome.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner Jagec.
I would consider going up to Wombat, (i'm in Geelong). Although I try and stick to tracks around the area as the Hilux really is a pig on the open road.
It would also be worth asking me during the week. I've been casual for the last 7 years and work most weekends and it's usually during the week I get time off.
I know the area reasonably well but not like the back of my hand. I'm no expert though. My philosophy is that there is safety in numbers

Hey Shep, I'm free every Tues and Wed, so message me if you get some free time. I'm always keen. I'm over in Mordialloc, so it's a bit of a hike to Wombat for me too but I like it there. I have bearing issues to deal with this week but maybe next week if you're free. Cheers!

If I know what I'm doing 3 days ahead of time I consider myself lucky. I will send you a message on Monday and let you know what I'm up to.
Wombat doesn't look that far.

Plenty of tracks to choose from, but choose wisely as most tracks are very very wet, get a map and explore, are you thinking easy, medium or extreme ? They are all there.
