    Smile Awesome wheelin FUN - Colo

    I had a great day out wheelin yesterday and have pretty much decided I will run a SJC trip there soon.

    Plenty of great opportunity to test your heap and your driving skills
    most of the difficult track bits have 3 options chicken, B & A grade challenges
    failrly close to Sydney - the turn off is just 10 min from Richmond Maccas
    the trail crosses several times over the river - great to get those big splash pics
    good mix of slippery stuff and rocks
    can you tell I'm a bit excited about this trail?

    I realise this post doesn't really conform to the SJC std but if there is any interest i will post up a proper trip invite soon!

    So heres my question / poll

    Who might be interested in a run on a Thursday Late Arvo - leave Richmond maccas @ 6pm do the whole trail in the daylight (2.5hrs) and return in the glow of sunset / night trail

    Post up people - tell me im crazy if thats what you think! - lol
    cheers Hunty
    ps
    see attached pootrol rescue for a glimpse of the trail
    Luv My Jeep!

    Is this the "wheeny Creek" track, that finishes at a small lookout over the upper colo, y'know the one with the sizable rock step near the end which incidentally has increased in depth in the last year? Probably it isnt, because the trail doesn't cross "several times over the river" as Hunty describes.
    If it is, its just worth considering that a 6 pm kick off from Richmond Maccas would mean you would only reach the start of the track proper at around 7pm. A conservative estimate under daylight conditions would be two and a half hours to the end of the track, assuming no mishaps.
    Then another hour and a half to return down the track, again in daylight conditions. These are times i have experienced with a small group number in daylight hours - Just pointing out this would be essentially a night drive and depending on vehicles a get off the track time around midnight.

    PS Cabbage Tree Rd, Nth Richmond, used to be a good one but last time i was there it had been gated,courtesy of NPWS.

    Cheers

    Dave
