Big River State Forest. Feb 24. Easy/Med

Post by luigi » Sun 03 Feb, 2019 10:54 am

Hi Fellas
Meeting at Big River Camp. 8.30am. Sunday Feb 24.
This will be a track exploring trip into the Big River forest.
It will be easy to med depending on the weather. We will try to find some more challenging tracks for those who want to try them.

Closest fuel is Warburton or Marysville. But don't trust them to be open early Sunday.

Regards. Wayne. 0419539264

Hi Fellas.
Hi Bacon.
Our trips are normally just one day trips. We usually start heading home around 4.00 pm. A driver can leave the trip at any time, but must tell the trip leader.
Sometimes, due to weather conditions, breakdowns or driver over enthusiasm :roll: (eg. the famous 4 o/clock track) :lol: trips can end in darkness.
We don't leave anyone behind.
Hope this answers your question.
Regards. Wayne.

Hi again

I plan to join in on this trip. I am picking up the new Jimny on Tuesday. Therefore, the vehicle would be factory standard. Apart from the required recovery items +fire extinguisher+first aid, is there anything else I should bring?

I am also a newbie to off road driving, this will be my first. Any suggestions or advice are welcomed.
