Sunday 3rd April trip into Tararua's

Postby wisard2 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 7:38 pm

I am going into the Tararua's this coming Sunday, for the day to check out the condition of the tracks and the hut.

I will also probably do the "Loop Track" which is in most places pretty hard core.

If anyone wants to come along, they will need a reasonably capable vehicle, preferably with decent tyres and winch.

As I will be accessing this area through Private property, I won't be taking any more than 5 vehicles max, including mine.

If anyone is interested in coming along, bearing in mind that this is NOT a shiny trip, then PM me as it is first in best dressed.

The area I am going into is; http://www.offroadexpress.co.nz/Forums/ ... &sk=t&sd=a
and is in the same area I took a trip into a couple years back with Dace, Crispy/Mark, Tony Nizfari/Curly etc.

If interested in coming along, PM me for times, meeting place in Otaki etc.

A great day up in the Tararua's with a good bunch of guys. Some sight-seeing first then off to tackle the "Loop Track". This sorted out a few trucks, including mine. Photos tell the story lol.
