Thanks to Truckster and Dave in a Playdoe we had a great weekend, Stephan in his LC100, Heather and myself.

Started after a cool night and a heatless fire from Sheepyard, to Fry's, to Upper Jamieson Hut, to 4x4 track to Refrigerator Gap, clearing trees along the way not too challenging. Bluff Hut, to Lovicks Hut and a little bit of icy snow remaining. Then overnight by Bindaree hut with a better fire and a little rain.

The challenge of the day was a long drive home alter leaving the guys after Bindaree Falls they went up the Monument Track where some one had some fun before them in a hire car. Thought they would learn about 4bys. Truckster may like to add to it.

Was a fun weekend anyway and enjoyed it immensley, but was a pity that half of Melbourne was there but no EO stickers.

Lots of laughs and good company was enjoyed. Thanks Truckster.
Cheers,
Who?

Hello Eric

I have tried to send you an enquiry through your dealer ad and it keeps getting rejected due to excessive mail use.

Is there another address I could send an email enquiry to

Im shocked at home many billion people were up at every hut, and how many morons are out there, trying to do tracks that have large signs

"DRY WEATHER TRACK ONLY"
yet in their pretty Hire Pajero, they have to bend it in 1/2 and destroy 99% of the track desperatly tryin not to look a loser infront of their mates...

Truckster do as I have and go and sujest to them that they are stuffing it for others and ask have they read the sign.
It makes them think that some one does care.

All the best

We did, Dave even suggested he give up as he wasbleepin the track... and the car, and making it hard for others....

It was care factor 0 totally... I wasnt at this point as I couldnt walk up there, but would have been handy to have had their # plates.

We told the 2 parks honeys that were crusin around about it, and said they should go and check the track, the chick in charge (around 28 yr old Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm) told us she "THOUGHT" it was closed, yet the gates werent shut, and it wasnt on the closed tracks list on friday morning when we left.
