Was a good day/weekend Nicko.  Thanks to Dean for organising the route and the morning tea.

A few pics to add of the day.

Ran down 2 hours from the Northern Suburbs to meet with Dean.  Started to get chilly at the creek crossings/gulleys around 330pm.  By the time we hit the camp site at around 545pm, it was just on dark and a little cold for topless driving.  Found a burning stump just after entering the camp site and had to warm the hands.



The next day, a little high cloud was experienced early morning, but Dean promised that it would burn away as the morning progressed.  A few varieties of country style roads used.  Some examples of the scenery below




















Encountered a number of Water Crossings  ;)






with this one being something to be tried at a later date




as just to the right of this picture was this




There was some spectacular views and surrounds, of which the pictures do not do justice












the Lads standing around, discussing the weather




The world through rose coloured glasses





Overnight, it was so Cold, it made your head hurt (and shrink)




Dean having a giggle after asking Mr Miyagi what parts he was carrying.......





Plenty of onlookers throughout the day, both young and old alike





Blessed are the cheesecake makers





The participants for the weekend

L to R  This Little Piggy (Brad), Mr Miyagi and the parts wagon, Clockwork Orange (Jim)  and Moke  (Dean)  Other part of team of clockwork orange, Kim, was kindly taking the photo.

Looks like an awesome weekend though. Very jealous.

Very brave of you Queenslanders to head out for a winter camp south of the border too  :)
