My weekend (photos)

Well, this was my weekend, what was yours like?

Went 4x4'ing in the Ranger
Click the image to open in full size.
My neighbour and a few other friends came along too (29 vehicles and 75 people in total).
The neighbours mean Range Rover (powered by a blown 5.2l Rover V8)
Click the image to open in full size.
Unfortunately (as is the case in Australia) the vehicles were predominately Nissans and Yota's, with a couple of Land Rovers.
There was one other Ford (also a Ranger), oh and a Ford Maverick - essentially a rebadged Nissan Patrol.

We got stopped a couple of times by fuel pump issues on a diesel Series 1 Discovery


The vehicle in question (with lots of manly blokes surrounding it attempting to fix aforementioned problem)

Here we are, all banked up waiting for the Discovery:

Now the scenery almost makes the beer drinking, meat eating, fireworks and general ruckus worthwhile

In case you couldn't guess, we were in the middle of nowhere - not a house for 50 miles

Out of curiosity, where were you at down there? That red soil on the road caught my attention; I remember that stuff when I was there.

The Alpine National Park in Victoria.
Here is a quick map - the red "splodge" in the bottom right corner is about where we camped, and from there we drove over a number of trails in the park.

For a point of reference, Benalla is about 160miles North East of Melbourne.
