Hi to every one on the explor oz forum.
I am new to this so hopefully I can join in with some of the future threads.
I live in south east Qld and I bought a 100series Lancruiser a month ago and hope (when I get time off work) to go to many out of the way places and see some of Australia and its outback. I would firstly like to do a 4wd driving course so I can really learn what I can do in my new beast, then I hope to head bush.

Cheers one and all.
Brian

G'day Briar and welcome to ExplorOz.
Heaps of info on here to keep you busy for yonks.
May I suggest that a Club would be the best place to obtain your driving course and heaps of useful info. Personally I'm with the TLCC but there are heaps of others out there. You should be able to obtain a much better value for money course from a Club compared to a commercial operator.
Cheers from the Moose

Welcome to the club. Its members have a wealth of knowledge and if they don't know the answer to a question they will make one up and see what happens.

Just don't ask about tyres, best fridge, and best 4wd LOL.

Hi Brian & welcome to a great site. You will get lots of good info from many "gentleman" on here.
Word of warning though. Blokes like Max sometimes only get part of it right, like Waeco, yep that's correct. Tyres also probably correct. But how could anybody be so wrong about vehicle choice?? Anyway 2 out of 3 is pretty good!! LOL & cheers.
