    Nice trees, nice rivers and creeks, nice farm land and nice forests. Forget about the internet though. The service is better in the desert than the forest. No way can upload any photos unless right in the middle of a big city like Hobart. Give us a couple of days and I'll put up some pictures of our adventure (continuing) including the trek to South Cape.

    More from the Double Sandy Point including one that shows just how steep the dune was

    Final one for a while. Two different tracks. The first was a simple forest track that crossed a bridge. On an earlier recce, VK has added some logs to make the bridge wide enough. But when we got there the log had been cut. It can be seen to the edge of the picture, so the group decided to bypass through the creek. The first group started to go through but it was felt that it would take too long with groups 2 & 3, a total of 26 vehicles to get through so they turned around.

    Second part is a few sections of the Swanston Track that runs between a military live firing range and a nature reserve. Literally on either side of the track. The silver 120 in this is stock standard with HT tires and it didn't get stuck once. Just goes to show that even in stock form the Prado is a great truck...

    Even with AJ searching, the trax was never found.

    The one man brave enough to go in - even the owner of it wasn't going in as deep as AJ

    Still sorting my way through all the photos, but here are a few of mine from the first day on the tracks.

    A few from the forest tracks we took to get to the beach.








    The line up on the beach.






    The remains of a dead whale on the beach, not something I have ever seen before. It was very wobbly when poked, but wasnt overly smelly, but you wouldn't want to puncture it I reckon




    And a nice view at the top of the dune, one of many many nice views for the trip.

    Transit day Myrtle Park to Weldborough

    Some more pictures, these from the first transit day from Myrtle Park to Weldborough.

    Our group, led by Sam and Ashley.




    Smoko was at Legerwood where there are some pretty cool tree carvings, just one of the many places in Tassie that has these.










    After stopping for some cheese tasting (and a few purchases) at Pyengena we headed the short distance up the road for the short walk into St Columba Falls, which was well worth the effort.








    And the line up somewhere along the way before reaching camp.




    Cheers Andrew
