G'day all, I've got a mate who's having a hard time, so next weekend I'm going to take him up to Zig Zag to get him out of the city and have a bit of a chat. I usually do all the fun parts of Newnes state forest (spanish Steps etc) as a group, but this will be a solo vehicle trip. I haven't done the Newnes ruins via old coach road, or Galah Mountian Road before. From the maps they look easily doable solo, but I figured I ask to see if anyones done them recently and can comment on track conditions, and whether it's easily soloable with twin locks. Not too stressed about getting stranded, I've got all the recovery gear (plus I know a local who will come pull me out for a case of beer), but I'd like the day to go smoothly. My mates never been 4wding and the last thing I want is to stress him out more by turning the day into a recovery session. If he behaves I may even let him drive.
