Need a snow drive somewhere. Seems a waste to have all that white stuff close by and don't get a wheel into it!
Suggesting the 24, Sunday and heading to Licola and up the Tamboritha Road to snow.
Chains not required, nor any entry fees. But it's a long drive for the day.
I can see Mt Baw Baw from my back gate and there was snow/ice down to 500mtrs on the hills today.....
Thanks Ra - put this in the right spot!
One in - any more?

how long would the drive be...
could be good
The drive will be as long as it takes to get there. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
About 1.5-2 hours past my place RB. Just past Licola.
Oh yer and I'll be there with the TJ FINALLY!!!!
15-08-2003, 11:05 PM
well not much interest but if we can get one more vehicle perhaps could be good?
just spoke to mate dave, and he is arriving back in melb on thursday after couple years away and he is very keen to go for a drive on the weekend...
so were in....
I'll probably be able to get another 2 Jeeps so it should bo ok!!

might be a goer... have to check to see if i have anything on next weekend...

Need input here. We could meet in Warragul (cheaper fuel-Melb prices) or we could meet at Moe Maccas on the highway.
18-08-2003, 10:01 PM
TW - want to come and try that roll again???? :lol: :lol: :shock:
So is it still on for this Sunday?
I've got a family engagement that I'd love to get out of, and a snow trip might be a good enough excuse (god I hope it is!) :mrgreen:

I just spent last weekend up at Jamieson (with MJOC) and Mt Skene and so forth was great lots of snow and mud, most of the creeks and rivers were flowing too fast and deep to try some crossings, the Landcruiser club took half an hour to recover one of their tanks from a creek that they tried to cross. Carried chains but never used them
Im heading up to Bulla on Friday for some Snow Boarding .. and should be back late Sat.. providing im not in too much pain.. i should be able to tag along.

ross... would we need chains?
19-08-2003, 06:52 PM
im in for sunday.... where shall we meet? should the melbourne crew meet at the regular meeting spot ? (petrol station cnr Jacksons & police rd), then meet up with Lexx & OzJeeper somewhere?
19-08-2003, 10:59 PM
Dean - no chains required! Thats why we are going wher we are going. Mt Skene is a bit closer but way more difficult. Driveing beyond Licola is long but easier....
As I said. Meet in Warragul where we have Melb petrol prices OR meet at Moe maccas? Backto you. Guys coming out of Melbourne can arrange a spot to meet and journey up.
PM me if needed....

I will meet you guys on Sunday morning 1030 sharp at McDonalds in MOE. It's right on the Princes Highway - you can't miss it!
Bring your lunch and basic recovery gear including a spade or shovel. Warm clothing and sensible footwear.
So you melb guys will need to leave at about 9:00-9:15 to get to Moe by 1030.
My TJ will be a 99% starter for the day so hope to see you then , I might even hang out on the highway to wait for you to come past and hook up with ya's.

You guys better get some soft top down, snow wheeling pics for us!
no owrries SC, topless snow fun here we come !!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I'm still hinting about getting out of the family gig...I'm working on (I'll let you know either way tomorrow)...

21-08-2003, 12:33 PM
Ok, so who in melbourne is coming?
Anyone else up for it? Where do you Melbourne guys want to meet? petrol station cnr Jacksons & police rd (just off the freeway) say at 9?
I can give you guys a definate answer on Saturday night when i return from Bulla.
But at this stage it looks like im going.. as i wanna see Lexx's rig. :mrgreen:
And yer meet at the petrol station cnr Jacksons & police rd (just off the freeway) 9? Geez I hate waking up early.
