    Easter 2016 Trip Report

    Hi All,
    Well that will be a trip to remember! 4 days, 1100 kilometers through some great scenery & a few surprises along the way. Not all went to plan, but a great trip all the same.

    Day 1, Home to Mary`s View, Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. 13 hours travel with stops. 230 km of tar, 93 km of rough dirt tracks.

    Day 2, Mary`s View to the Blowhole, Boonanghi Forest - the trip went downhill (literally!) & nearly didn't get back up. Another 13 hours & 250 km of driving (only 25 km of tar) including some tracks in the dark, finally finding a camp at 10:00 pm!

    Day 3, From the coast near Kempsey to The Pub with no Beer (but luckily that they had some - needed one after the mornings adventure!). A case of vertigo (not me) & trying to find a campsite during Easter. 10 hours & only 212 km for the day, mostly dirt.

    Day 4, Pretty easy run home on the Highway, we had all had enough of the winding, steep, dusty roads by then.

    I have put the full Trip Report up on my website, it`s a bit long winded but I have put in a fair amount of detail & photos of the trip. Here is the link if anyone wants to have a look.

    Day one (link at bottom of each webpage to the next day)

    I will post a couple of Video`s on Youtube over the weekend & post the links on the forum.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did. The Patrol ran well all weekend, no problems at all. Already started planning for the June long weekend..........
