One day we won’t be the last to arrive at the meet point -(0630) But hey, at least we weren’t late! Quick coffee & bite to eat while we talk through the simple brief, basically head to Bribie & take the inland track to our camp for the night Poverty Creek.
Although I might of not been the most confident on directions as had been taken up there only once before, the bonus was no one would know if I got lost anyway!
We had 4 4WD’s for the weekend, 3 camper trailers, 4 visitors & 2 tents – Everyone was ready so off we went. Simple easy drive up the gateway with no traffic, we were a little spread out due to traffic lights at the start but all left the freeway together. Before we crossed the bridge over to Bribe we spotted an underbody wash which we thought would be handy on the way home on the Sunday, save a little of the clean up at least! Following the signs to Banksia Beach & White Patch even I couldn’t get us lost. I remembered to let everyone know about some very creative gas bottle sculptures along the esplanade just before we enter the inland track.
Getting to the end of the tarmac at the entrance to Bribie Island National Park we all air’d down, I chose to go straight to 18PSI all round as last time (which was my 1st!) there was plenty getting bogged in the exceptionally soft inland track, I’d started a bit higher that time but then stopped to let that bit more out – Although to be fair we had been having a lot of rain which would of firmed things up. We took our time taking it nice & easy with the inexperienced POM leading the way. There was some strange radio chatter & laughter I heard which just sounded like double dutch to me, but with Michelle also laughing I then became educated on 80’s Aussie icon Skippy (cue the skippy sound effects & ‘whats that Skip’) Guess you had to be there but glad I could add to everyone’s entertainment 🙂
