We need more trips - My 4WD is getting rusty!
Rusty 4WDGet your gear off Road, your family out of the house, your kids off their iPads! Maybe day trip up in the hills, beach or overnighter somewhere? Your 4WD is meant to get used - dont let it rust away and have the weeds grow through it! Here are some ideas for Day trips:
- Moore river state forest, Mundaring, Julimar, Avaon valley, Willbinga, Tims Thicket, Lancelin, Wandoo, Dwellingup, North, South, East…

Leaving Friday 8AM and following the historic Golden Quest Trail. We will be on the trail by the first night and spending 3 days and nights bush camping going around it hoping to stop in at a pub or 2 and maybe the occasional waving of the metal detector if we get a chance. We are also hoping to spend a full day in or around Kalgoorlie at the end doing the touristy thing staying at a caravan park for 2 night. Members only, max of 6 cars and you will need a minimum range of 500 kms between service stations. Wednesday will be just driving home from Kal.
