What truck and mods do you have?Daniels is getting pretty bad.There is a newish bog hole after the first bog holes which you diff out on other than 35's and there is no way round it.

ok cool,i got a lifted daihatsu on 31in mudzillas, my mate mitch has a gq lifted 6in on 40in rubber and reduction gears,another mate has chev powered land rover on 35's, maybe a disco with lockers on 33's or35's. So whatever you recomend would be good, whitemans lane was also mentioned as a good run but ive never done it. Also talk of doing a short track and having a bbq somewhere for lunch. i will have to get the maps out and plan a bit but u guys have the track knowledge some some helpfull input would be bloody awsome

Whitemans is a goodin,have drivin in lots.A good day trip on tracks close to one another is a run up whitemans,then across to daniels and go up skull and cross bones cause they are all near each other.You might struggle a little on 31's in a couple of spots on whitemans these days but nothing that a bit of packing or tug cant fix.Heres a link to this exact trip me and a mate did a little ways back on these tracks.

was a good day
drove tobins ridge track/fenceline
a few side tracks
didn't end up finding the top of tunks :x :x :x really wanted to drive it
so we back tracked & went down Lemontree & turned onto big jilliby &made our way down to the bogholes @ the bottom only to find the bridges rotten & creaking under foot so went back through the bog holes & up the ruts then once back to prickly ridge the resr of the group went & did the link rd between sawpit & branch rds while I turned up towards muirs lookout & did a few easy side tracks as a solo vehicle went over to 5 ways & drove greens break where I nearly put the GU on it's side taking the wrong line through the ruts up the top.
my front auto lokka got a good work out today with a few wheels doing a salute, works really well :D

damage report:
guy in ferozza: cracked front diff housing :x

OGJON: LH rear flare ripped off, twisted LH corner of rear bumper & got a small stick in the bead of drivers wheel, it's still holding air atm.


A big thanx to all the guys & gals who came for a run you're all top blokes/gals look forward to wheeling with you again, next time we'll have to go do froghollow & drury lane then do tunks fire trail from the bottom.
