Mt Disapointment - Sunday 1-Dec - Medium-Hard - Cancelled

Post by Greg » Sat 17 Aug, 2019 8:37 am

*** 9 Oct Update - Trip Cancelled due to lack of interest and to make space for other trips ***

*** if this turns out to clash with club christmas parties and campings - then I can move it ***

TRIP TITLE:
Mt Disappointment

TRIP DATE:
Sunday 1-Dec

TRIP DESCRIPTION:
I'd like to sneak in one more trip before the Christmas break which then immediately winds into the 4wd Show and Adventure Tour etc.

After some googling and you tubing I found a bit of detail about some harder tracks at the north end of Mt Disappointment - so we'll be heading there for a look-see.

I cut my teeth at Mt Dissa on those very tracks only a few years ago. Sadly that's all there is really. The bump is nice and rutty, there's a deepish water section at the creek that you can't bypass. The ladder always changes and can look difficult. I'm sure there are sneaky tracks suitable for zooks but I've always been with bigger cars. I haven't been up there this year so who knows. It could even be a bit of a scouting around sort of trip.

Some of my earliest wheeling memories are there, too.
