An overnighter then.. As I said, we travel further for surf carnivals!

Do you think this will be something that a real newbie could join in on?

I have a bog-standard SF but with a skid plate. No lift, all weather but not AT tyres, no skill or experience other than some rocky fire roads around the snowys and Tas, pretty much all in the dry.

Not sure if I could get a leave pass for the day, but if you reckon I can learn something and not trash the car, I can try to get the ball rolling.

Looks like you're set!

(Rally uses road tyres too and his vehicle is probably the most capable of them all..)

I'm keen for a Sydney meet up. I can't make the 29th of April. But another time would be great.

There is an event on this weekend at Belanglo SF. Most are only doing the Saturday, but a small number are staying overnight. You can come to that if you want

Fair enough. I try and do that stuff in the off season, as this time of year is the best for camping. There is another camping trip planned for mid May

No worries, i hope you guys had a good one! I got the car into a spot that I'd been thinking about for ages, a few scuffs on the skid plate, got to some good rock climbing routes, everyone including the car home safely. Win!
