Classic not Plastic was held on the June long weekend at Clarencetown, hosted by Jeep Club of NSW. 35 classic Jeeps and 25 more modern Jeeps in attendance. Pleasant camping spot on the Clarence river. Local trips each day over the weekend, from easy to difficult. A successful weekend.

Zig zag, prado trail 6 June. This was a rerun of a previous trip. A good day.
