Gorrilla Snot Hill & the hill that the pictured roll-over occurred on are now closed & heavily policed by the local cops! And if you dodge the road blocks & rocks etc to drive them anyway, they even have surveillance camera's hidden around the place at all sorts of odd times, so it could be that the first time you realise that you were sprung is when the ticket or summons arrives in the mail! :eek:

Many of the tracks & places mentioned in 2009 threads around the Hills & Mt Barker in particular are now either closed or smack in the middle of newly built up areas, usually with massive amounts 'rehabilitation' done on them - in some cases, that means 6-8 inches of bitumen spread all over the top of the road surface for kilometres in either direction!! :eek: It seems that most of the good driving places are being driven further & further out! :o

Have you been out to Jakem Park? That's not too far from Mt Barker & has some reasonable tracks & hills, crossings, etc; altho it does cost you a little - but at least you know there's someone around the place who'll recover you when you get stuck & make sure you get home, even if your 4By doesn't make it!! :sillywink:
An Ex-Service person is someone who thought enough about their country & how great it is, how lucky we are to live here, to write a blank cheque made out to 'The People and Commonwealth of Australia' for the value of 'Up to & including my Life!'
