I had thought I might be able to join you all as a passenger on this trip, but circumstances dictate otherwise (hence I've kept quiet).

Whilst I don't know the full route you will be attempting, I do know that the first timers will have a great day out.

White Stones can be a little scratchy later in the year (slippy state section) but can be bypassed if approaching from the side slope section.

As mentioned, there is a tarmac route around the "carwash", although this vid shows three standard cars having no problem:



Mind you, if it is deeper (your leaders will know), it can get quite hairy (I was in the lead LR):



And here's how not to do it (note entry speed):



You are going to have a great day out - don't forget to take the camera and share your pictures here on your return.

Yup, have seen those vids before Trugga. The 'kamikaze' approach isn't the best :lol:

Pity you aren't coming, would have been nice to put a face to the vids so to speak :D

Right guys, it looks like its going to moist weather to say the least so gate openers will need wellies (I need a gate opener :wink:)

Remember this is not a pay and play and we will not be wheel spinning about tearing up the countryside, it a nice gentle introduction to some great unsurfaced and surface roads for that matter in stunning scenery should the mist hold off.

For those with petrols or cars full of sensors a bit of silicone spray will help keep the electrics dry as there will very likely be a few large and surprisingly deep puddles.

Keep a good distance from the car in front, remember he can throw a rock up and smash your screen or get caught on a steep section and roll back.

A CB will be very handy.

Recharge your camera batteries and remember the camera.

And best of all, enjoy :wink:

On that note, will WD40 be ok? I can't remember if its conductive or not :?
