ATT ALL:

If anyone attending the trip is planning on arriving at camp before Friday the 20th November could you please let me know asap either by PMing me here, posting on the trip discussion over at http://www.4wdtrip.com.au/offroad/trip/ ... tripid=259 or emailing me on izonozi@hotmail.com

I need to sort out who is going to arrive first as I won't be leaving until Friday morning, which means the first person to arrive will have to choose a dedicated campsite.

Thanks,
Jason

Sorry for the last minute bail out guys, I was looking forward to catching up with old faces and new. My Mother Inlaw passed away a couple of weeks ago and we have to clean out her rental unit. Have a great weekend boys and gals?

Hey Guys,

Just signed up for the trip on the 4WD Trip website.

I've just arrived in Victoria and keen for this meet. Someone from the group had a keen eye and dropped the posted on my car, so thanks for that!

Also is anyone else heading from Melbourne CBD way? Wouldn't mind tagging along for directions, happy to meet somewhere of course.

Hi SilvionIT,

Welcome to the forum and our annual weekend away!! when are your going to leave for the weekend,Thurs, Fri, Sat people might want to know so they can meet up with you somewhere and where are you leaving from????

As for the flyer on your windscreen, was it a black Ranger in Collingwood, a white Ranger in Fairfield or another black Ranger in Brunswick, where was it??? I've been handing them out for month as I get around Melb a fair bit as a truck driver and where ever I stop if there is a Ranger or BT50 nearby I put a flyer on it!!!

Well only 1 working day left to go for some, so it"s almost on us!!!

Have fun Guys!!!

Cheers Ranger50 :thumb: :drink: :drink:

Just bought a new BT last month & just found this thread today .
Unfortunatley can't make this one, do you guys do many other trips or is this annual trip the main one ?
Really disappointed I can't make this :irked:
Cheers Dean.

Hi 953,

This is the main trip for the year, but occasionally the Melb based guys might do a weekend or day trip out to Wombat state forest(just North of Bacchus Marsh) as for other states I don't know!!!

As for the annual trip this weekend you can come for as much or as little time as you like(maybe day trip) depending where you are coming from!!!

thanks Ranger50, sorry I couldn't make this.
Next year will now have to be the go.
Might try & organise a day trip in the not too distant future so I can meet some of you guys & see what you've done to your cars.
Hope you guys had fun, any trip report, pics, etc.
Cheers Dean.
