    Default Brisbane - This Weekend

    Hey all,

    Advertisement


    Probably going to head out for a bit of a drive this weekend. Either saturday, or sunday, morning. Anyone else free & interested? I'm fairly flexible as to date & time, so let me know & we'll see if we can organise something.

    Hi Mac,

    I'm heading up to Cullens @ Nambour on Saturday, then across to Classics @ Toowwoomba, via the twisty stuff. Leaving BrisVegas about 6:30am so I can get to Cullens when they open. If you see Kermit on the road give me a wave.
    Cheers Simon

    Was good to meet you Jason.

    If you thought my car looked dirty when you saw it, an hour later it looked like it had done a gravel stage in a rally. The road between Esk & Crows nest was completely mud in some places. You can't see the paintwork on the lower half of my car from the front wheels back!

    Sorry Guys, I've been sick for the past couple of days & unable to get online. I'm still up for tomorrow, if anyone else is. I'd normally say we should follow Kermit, but some people have time constraints which rule out such a long trip (probably about 6 hours total). Oh, and I did the same trip last weekend.

    So, I'm suggesting the same trip we did a while back. Start at Samford, tackle Mt Mee, then out to Kilkoy & Sommerset Dam, and back via Mt Glorious to Samford. I'd suggest a start of 9am, which would mean meeting at Samford about 8.30am.

    How does this sound? I know it's probably a bit late notice now, but what the hell....

    BTW, if you can't take the time to do the whole round, you could always start at Samford & do the run up Mt Mee & come back via Caboolture & the freeway.

    Don't think I'll make it, I'm driving to Melbourne next Thursday so maybe a weekend away from the car is in order. Though if I wake up with itchy feet tomorrow morning I might make my way out to Nambour to follow Simon on his quest

    Billy, meet me at Cullens at about 9am, I should be finished with RA business by then. You can follow me down so roads towards Kilcoy if you like. I'll show you some great twisty stuff. No need to go all the way to Kilcoy or Toowoomba, as I will be.

    Mac, may I suggest the road from Kilcoy to Jimna. Deserted twisty mountain road.

    In the main street of Kilcoy go straight ahead instead of turning left (like we did last time). Then turn right (from memory I think it is a roundabout), then straight a head until you hit Jimna.

    Seems like Saturday morning is going to be best for most people. So looks like Saturday. I haven't tried the road to Jimna yet. We'll see who turns up tomorrow & what they say. Might be worth a try.

    Ok. The meet is 8.30am at Samford, in front of the park (across from the hotel). The easiest way to get to Samford is to drive outbound on Kelvin Grove Road, past where it turns into Enoggera Road. From there you turn left onto Samford Road (I think the suburb is Alderley at that point). It's a pretty major intersection & well signed. You follow Samford Road all the way to Samford. When you hit Samford Village there is a round-a-bout where you turn right onto Main Street (There is a small shopping centre on the corner of this). The meeting place is about 150 metres down Main Street, on the left.

    By the way, my number is 0407 275 929. If anyone has difficulty finding the place, or wants to meet in advance to follow to Samford, feel free to call/sms me.

    BTW I won't be online again before leaving in the morning, so if you need to contact me, the phone is the best way

    I last drove that road in '96 in the 504, was a nice wide hillclimb switchback style dirt road back then, fabulous fun. Has it been paved?

    Hi guys, sorry I missed you - didn't check board until now as I thought (don't know why) we were going on Sun and so missed the rv ( slept in anyway!).

    Hope you had a good run.

    Hey all,

    was a good run, despite the wet conditions on most of the good twisty bits (and a certain lancer at sommerset dam). A good time was had by all, all being me & Mr V. Well, a good time was definately had by me, anyway!
