G'day all,


I've been lucky enough to get out bush again for a few hours this time after our commemoration  of the sacrafices our armed force's personnel make to allow us to do and have what we have today.  This occurs every year on the 25th of April -  ANZAC day.


I started with the dawn service at Mt Macedon with my brother - we camped out to avoid the new bus system.  It was once again a good and moving ceremony.

Then at 12pm I met up with Subaruby (silver foz) and Deadman (white foz).  Subaruby was in a stock foz, Deadman's foz is a stock 2L drivetrain and wheel combination with a 2 inch strut lift, custom front bar with winch.  My L series - Ruby Scoo - has EJ22, 4.11 ratio diffs with front LSD and centre locking awd L box, 3 inch lift and 27 inch tyres.

Here are the pics, enjoy - feel free to make up your own captions.  It was an awesome day out!



































































Tracks hit up: Pole Tk, Camp Tk, Soil Pit Tk.

From here Subaruby departed.

Then Reily's fire break tk, some random fire track, Croziers loop tk, another random track or two before popping out on Mooney's Lane to end the day's session.

Thanks to Subaruby and Deadman for coming for the day. Apologies for not having done a reccie before the day as the tracks had severely changed since I was last in the area!

It was awesome fun.  So much so that I went out again the next day with a Canadian mate to film a particular track that the camera stopped filming due to me stalling...  Here it is here:



That mob of Land Rovers had just come down the track - almost 2 hours later they were still there with the last two vehicles waiting half way up the track - I'm sure they must have had lunch first!

There was a request on another forum to "make sure you take some pics" - so I made sure of that!  I had about 300, mostly sequences as you can see with Deadman's forester later in the pics.
