hey BRIAN,
It's good that the NISSAN's got the Pedes on, as for me and my "little diffs" Hilux I'll just run 31' on alloy wheels; you might have a chance to snatch me out for once. :lol:

Kraft man,
It might be a bit sloppy, after the rain, but I'll have a spare seat if your not confident.

Was going to do Bunyip Ridge track to Blue Range Road, But Tea tree track Or Western Track Might be a be more suitable to Kraft mans GU. What'd you blokes reckon?

Hehe I dunno what to make of you Krafty. :purplex: For all I know you might turn up with a standard 6.0 litre Chev diesel V8, standard portal axles, and standard 42" Super Swampers on your "standard GU"...........................................
If that is the case P.M. me and I'll bolt on my bad boys boots. ......We can only dream.

It'l be you me 'n Brian. The Krawlers most likely arn't interested in something too easy, the blokes from work think that I'll try and make swing off a winch rope from cliff to cliff. I've honestly just tried to get an easy day out to get off the the bitumen, breath some fresh air and eat meat in the jungle. Meet up with some like minded 4wders and if the past is anything to go by and you do enjoy yourself; you'll start with a bit of lift and tyres and end up with a space shuttle. Just ask REDNECKRACING :lol:

O.K lads,
we'll need a full tank of juice, shovel, snatch strap and the golden rule is "he gets stuck and needs a snatch washes his own strap". bring some lunch and drinks. Above all else bring your sense of humour and lets escape rat race for a few hours.

THE DETAILS

On SATURDAY 12th May, I'll be leaving the Gembrook Bakery, at 8.00 am ish and head for Dyers Picnic ground for breakfast at about 8.45 am. The bakery is on the same side of the road as the Gembrook Pub, about 500 metres further down the Rd. Channel 21 on the C.B. radio.
If anybody is heading up Wellington Rd. way to Gembrook we can meet up and head off together.


Confirmed to come along:
Tarzan
Kraft Man
BLF 52
Blue Rangie

Krafty,
VicKrawlers going soft? :crazy: LOL Well I suppose with me leaving the 31" tyres on, this Krawler might be going soft, but only to accommodate a bloke who needs a day off the bitumen, in a soft roader stock GU. :lol:

See you all there guys. :thumb:

We drove Andersons track, thinking that it had been graded......I was wrong. It lived up to its reputation for being one of the best tracks at Bunyip. Poor ol Max in the 80 series clawed his way up Andersons track at winch speed. Here's some pics.

After we made it out of Andersons Track, we headed off down Blue Range Rd. and had a bite to eat before we treked on down Bunyip Ridge track and went home.
You can see Steve and Arthur below arguing who's fault it is that the Rangie broke down....Brothers sheees.
