Transferred from the old web.
This morning Queensland announced that borders will be opened to NSW - so Dru can get down for this trip AND get back home again. Looks like it is happening. Woohoo!
I do not avoid them.
REPEAT: you can't avoid scratchy branches on this trip, do NOT come if that is in any way a problem for you. New JL, Cherokee and just fussy owners take note. This is scratch and rock territory.
Finally-finally - Watagans is famous for mud and bog holes. We do not go looking for it, but when it has been wet, you're going to get a bit muddy.
Standard SJC rqts - RATED recovery points front and rear (no exceptions), recovery gear, radio, food/drink, first aid kit, sunscreen, camera. Otherwise stock Jeep is fine.
I have done my best to update the list on the basis of the old forum. Feel free to contact me if you think there are errors. And in which case the list might shuffle a little. As promised Trip Leaders wanting some experience have been pushed up the list where they have stepped forward and already given assistance.
A hard cap of 16 vehicles has been set for the trip.
