Trip Summary

Hard - For very experienced drivers with very capable 4WDs. You may tackle some very difficult tracks with frequent very steep and/or rocky/slippery/sandy track and/or deep river crossing sections. IMPORTANT: Vehicle damange may occur. Please make sure you are prepared for this.

Planning to drive from Jamieson to Licola via Mount Sunday Road this weekend. There are few videos on youtube to wet your appetite like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrUEoIDXAHI I havn't driven it so I'll be following my nose a little bit.

Take it with a grain of salt BUT according to the BOM, "Snow falling above 500 metres." on Friday!!!!

If your comming, you will need to be fully self sufficient and capable of self recovery, that means a winch in good working order, no ifs, buts or maybes on that one. Preferably your rig has a locker, if not 2. Your person is also well prepared, ie: decent warm clothing, sleeping gear, food for longer than we expect to be gone, etc. Be prepared for an Adventure!
I plan on leaving Melbourne Friday night and camping near Jamieson somewhere, havn't decided exactly where yet. Let me know in the discussion section if your going to join me.
