A trip to Mt. Mee hadn’t been scheduled since early in the year so I thought it was high time the club ventured back up there for a drive through the mountains. It was a warm, sunny day with four families meeting at Dayboro to begin the adventure. The tracks proved to be very dry and dusty as we made our way up the mountain. We challenged ourselves with a side track which required accurate wheel placement over a deep rut before attempting a tricky exit back on to the main track. Some careful manoeuvring and guidance was required to ensure our cars were lined up square to a steep drop, as any other angle could have resulted in a rollover. We came across some steep inclines at ‘A Break’ and even though the hills had plenty of grip, there were areas which were quite stony and loose at times. We ventured to the lookout where the clear conditions offered us a magnificent view over Somerset Dam. We took this opportunity to stretch our legs and enjoy morning tea. We continued on our way following the Western tracks which brought us to a small creek crossing with clear running water. A small rutted descent had to be negotiated carefully as wheels came off the ground to provide some thrills. Lowered tyre pressures provided us with a smooth ride over the sometimes rocky terrain. We headed out of the bush to the gantry where we shared lunch with magpies, kookaburras and a goanna. After a relaxing lunch we headed for home back through the bush, with more hills and MORE DUST!!!
