- For experienced drivers with well setup 4wds. You may tackle some difficult tracks with steep and/or rocky/slippery/sandy track and/or river crossing sections. IMPORTANT: Vehicle damange may occur. Please make sure you are prepared for this.
As I have had to postpone our HC trip originally set for that weekend, have decided to run a daytrip to drive a track that I have not driven for over 8 years called Low Saddle Tk. This track is a seasonally closed track but was permanently closed for a number of years. Last year a group of us attempted it, but it was too wet and slippery, so we had to turn back.
The basic plan for the day is a reasonably small loop with the other tracks being Deep Ck 1 & 4, (to check condition before our HC trip), then onto Fultons and Beardmores before finishing the day with Low Saddle. From there we then head home with the plan being back on the 'black top' by about 3pm; all going well. Minimum vehicle requirements for this trip are as follows;
VEHICLE: 32" A/T or M/T tyres, low range, some lift, (body or suspension) & full recovery gear. Traction aid and snorkle preferred but not mandatory.
As per all my trip, participants must 'CHECK IN' at least 24 hrs prior to start of trip to confirm their attendance or they will be removed and sombody else given the opportunity to attend. Feel free to bring partners/family etc, but sorry NO DOGS/PETS. Everyone must be self sufficent with food/water as we will have a short lunchbreak hopefully near a river. Last fuel available is in Moe so I suggest everyone tops up there even though we will only travel 100+ kays during the day from Erica.
At this stage, I am limiting the trip to 4 as I am sending invites to a couple of others, but if they dont wish to take part, I will increase numbers to 6 or 8. All drivers must be experienced and trip is not suitable for those new to 4wding.
Any questions feel free to ask.
