    Pink line was day one. Blue line was heading back out on day two.
    Climies track is between Trial harbour and Granville Harbour.
    Good gravel roads into both trial and granville.

    Good stuff!
    I saw the Climies Track turn off as we drove into Trial Harbour with Tvan attached. MrsTea thought my suggestion that we turn off & take a look was stupidity. In hindsight & looking at your pics she was probably right. Not the sort of track to be tackling solo, let alone towing! That was after we put the wind up ourselves driving the Montezuma Falls track (without Tvan) between Roseberry & Zeehan.

    Yeah probably a wise choice cuppa!
    I'm guessing you did Montezuma track down hill? It would be crazy hard uphill in the wet.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    It was certainly wet! Not sure about up or downhill. We had both. Went in from near the Renison Bell mine between Rosebery & Zeehan & came out the same way. Left the Tvan in the mine car park. 14km each way. Parts of it were the hardest 4wd I've done. I reckon we'd still be there if we didn't have the diff lock. I felt the Chris Boden book (4wd tracks in Tasmania 4th edition) we bought on the Spirit was out of date & that the level of difficulty harder than the book said. Problem was that by the time we found that out there was no way to turn back other than at the 10km mark (Junction with Ring Road I think) & at the end.

    Ahh yep, I was talking about the ring river part. That's a lot worse than the Montezuma bit. Chris's book is probably not out of date, i guess just highlights the fact that we're used to wet tracks here and the difference between wet and dry can be huge.
