  20170225 Teewah Beach
Posted by: White Bush Pig - 09-01-2017, 05:51 PM - Forum: Past trips - Replies (5)

Hi Everyone.
Camping trip to Teewah Beach. (either camping directly on the beach in one of the designated camping zones or one of the surrounding areas, ie, Freshwater campground).

Saturday 25th Feb to 26th Feb.

Beach permits will be required as will camping permits.
Check the link below for information on camping at either Teewah Beach or Freshwater.
Please note that camping on the beach provides no facilities, whereas camping at Freshwater has designated camp spots and toilet and shower facilities close by for convenience.

For anyone that is still interested in doing this trip, I would suggest a meeting point of the twin BP's at Morayfield at 8am for an 8.30am leave time.

Hi everyone.

I'm Ben. Albany Creek.

Just considering getting into 4WD. My son is getting into it and I am doing my research too.

It seems like a fun time and welcoming community.

Kind regards to all.

Well, not new to clubs or 4wding....g'day, I'm doc (Adrian) and partner is Zinta. I've come across from WA where I spent a lot of time in the desert exploring. Previously from Victoria where I cut my teeth 4wding in the high country. I was vice chairman of the WA4WDA and committee member in the western patrol club. Yes I have a patrol. It's a 2005 ST 4.2 which I've owned from new. Extremely modified and now a 4door ute.
Was introduced by troopie pete whom I've known for a while now (originally from the overlander forum). 
More about the truck and us later.

  20170126 Australia Day long weekend
Posted by: White Bush Pig - 15-11-2016, 08:43 PM - Forum: Past trips - Replies (4)

Hi everyone. 
I was advised today by Paul Burgess that he and his family have made a booking to stay at Borumba Dam for the Australia day long weekend. This is the same location as our Xmas party last year - Imbil.
In 2017 Australia day falls on a Thursday so if you are planning on getting away be sure to book in for the Friday off work.
This is a great location with a creek close by for swimming and some fantastic 4wd tracks to go exploring.
If you are interested in going on this trip be sure to book in early as no doubt it might be a popular choice for the long weekend.

Big Red Bash 3rd to 5Th July 2017


I am going to try and go next year - possibly Narelle too..
Should find out in a few days if he time if available  Angel 

If you like the outback, music and crowds then this could be the event for you!
I am looking at booking two weeks possibly setting off after work on Friday 30th or very early on the 1st
Clear object is to get to Birdsville early.. stay for the bash then head south to do Innaminka, Camerons and a few places on the way home as Narelle has not seen these..

This is currently listed as a non club trip but could become one if enough members are interested.

  Synthetic Shackles
Posted by: sirlezz - 01-08-2016, 01:50 PM - Forum: General chat - Replies (1)

Hi guys
just got a look at the Unsealed online mag advertising the use of Synthetic Shackles "Gator Jaw" Idea
American brand
safer than a steel projectile and they float too
around $42 US with postage???   Dodgy

But I found a cheaper and closer to home brand from NZ rated at 14 tons this one is made from dyneema rope
eBay item number: 112071714286  $35 with Free postage Cool


There are of course even cheaper Chinese brands of unknown quality Huh

what do you think will you use one instead of steel Big Grin

  Nice camp site
Posted by: troopiepete - 31-07-2016, 11:33 PM - Forum: * NON club trips - No Replies


Joe and I went on a bit of a relax trip yesterday and stayed overnight at the Bigriggen Park


If you want somewhere not too far from Brisbane, easy 2WD drive, showers and toilets where you can also take your dog then this park is for you.
I must say i was not expecting much and yes there were a heap of people but mostly we did not hear them and we had a good fire to keep us warm.
