Glasshouse Night Drive (Double Black Diamond)
6 Cars met at Steve Irwin Way and headed off about 4.00. When we got to Glasshouse town ship, we met up with 3 more cars that drove up from north side of Brisbane.
Ryan our trip leader took us under the rail line and up to the lookout and down to the start of our first track.
After airing down we headed off on what can only be described as one of the best tracks in Glasshouse. (Choppers Rock Run) May I suggest it’s not the track for Troopy’s as the owner found out.
Andrew in the 76 Cruiser also found the limits with some incredible 3 wheel action and being a passenger I could only hang on.
With the tight turns of this track some found their turning circle was really crap.
After the climb out which included driving a very steep rock face Andrew decided the 76 wasn’t like his old 80 he’d had enough and headed home.
After transferring the flag to the jeep we head of to do the track thanks to the recent 4wdqld Corroborree is now known as Boggo Road.
Boggo road is a track we’ve done many times before but the entrance and exit are certainly different. Loose rock is the way to describe this track and along the way we also ventured up ball bearing with it’s rock step up and loose surface the fun was added to by the water that is picked up at the bottom by our tyres and dropped on the track.
Most made it without much trouble except for the Troopy and Dave’s 80 found the step a bit too much and needed the help of the Jeeps winch, which was great for Kev as he got to do it twice.
After Boggo Road the crew from down south decided it was time to head home. We said good bye and with 5 left we headed off to do little red.
Little Red is one of those tracks where picking the right line will make it look easy or result in panel damage and at night it’s even more important. So with reverse been used a few times we all made it through unscathed.
Pulling out onto the main road at about 9.30 we decided it was time to call it a night and headed to the glasshouse garage to air up and head home.
Big thanks to young Ryan for a great job in leading his first trip.
