book and then went off 4W driving, it wasn’t long before we hit the dust and aired down
our tyres then off we went up the mountain. We all put our high beams on to see the
track ahead, the dust was bad in some spots and I think I maybe a bit of rain would not
go astray, as we got to the first stop to have a drink to get rid of some of dust.
After that we hit the big climb and David said my Nissan just walked up that so easily,
so I thought that had to be a fine in my book, but we all got over the hard bit OK and all
were happy with ourselves.
The night was a good night as there was no trouble with any of the 4WDs. We got to the
mill park where Dave left us to go home and YET another fine for a burnout on the gravel
Not a good look to see David! As Nissan drivers don’t have to prove (it) to the cruiser
boys, also we can’t leave out Brent in his Nissan, he didn’t get bogged at all.
It was all good as we headed down the track through the bush, back out to the IGA store
at Dayboro to air up our tyres. By this time it was 12:00am and that was good night to
all and all.

My Mum was away for the weekend. So the boys decided to have fun. We left Erin with
her friend Taylor and Sean and I set off in Dad’s new car. We packed a picnic and off we
went. We had fun things to eat and the car was so comfy that I fell asleep. When I woke
up Evan was driving my Dad’s car and I again fell asleep and when I woke up Michael
was driving my dad’s car. I think my dad was the best driver – and yes he told me to say
As Anthony said we set off for a night drive and the car was shining and clean. Not for
long it got covered in dust. We had fun going up and down hills and checking out the
Land cruiser. I’m looking forward to more trips.
