anyone drove white hills lately?

gidday, any one been from w/hills down to preston lately?

might go tomorrow, and cause quads are banned now , will have to stretch the

td42 engine in the gq , just wondering if its any softer than usual .

Went to 2 rocks the other day and the beach there from 2 rocks to loonies was mainly

undrivable to 4wds, you should have seen the size of some of the wheel tracks left behind!

Some crew must have had all sorts of dramas going by the belly out marks 3 foot deep.

Took the quad and yep powered across the lot. Got 4 good sized winter tailor at about 9.30 am

from up near loonies. Lots of weed around in spots , but find a clean green spot , no matter

how small , and you will find some nice tailor 500-600 mm.

 Bad time of year to be driving that stretch of beach up there, have snatched out plenty.  Even summertime causes plenty of dramas.

Whitehills on the otherhand I haven't been down to for several months but the gq should get through

Pretty high tide in the morning at the moment might have to drop down into waves to get through about 5k's south of white hills entry.

4.2 diesel

Got a GQ standard 4.2 don't have to much trouble along White Hills, tyres down to 18 odd PSI. Check out a spot about half way along (10km) has a break in the reef a bit stoney on the bottom well worth a try sometimes a bit narrow for parking though. Good Luck was half thinking about heading down saturday arvo.
