Trip Summary

Medium - For experienced drivers. You may tackle some tracks with moderate steep and/or rocky/slippery/sandy track sections.

Hopefully I don't jynx the weather forecast but finally it looks like we might be getting our first big dump this snow season!!!

After reading the post on the Overnight Swag And Snow Trip"Hopefully Alex is ok with me saying this, but he has commitments next weekend, so we are looking at running the trip the following weekend", I figured I will run my own trip this weekend.

Earlier in the year I did some exploring up around Omeo, found some interesting tracks and drove past the Dogs Grave camp site, which sits at about 1200m, told myself I had to come back when there was snow.

Anyway so my plan is to drive up to Dogs Grave on Friday night after work and then just take things as they come. Probably head to the Omeo Pub for a meal at some stage over the weekend. Might even drive up to Hotham and hit the slopes for a few hours. Or build a minuture bush fire and get merry :)

If it works out, I'll try and meet others on the way to Omeo and create a convey otherwise I'll just meet you at the campsite. If people want to turn up on Saturday morning that's fine by me also.
