    Avoca - with working pics!!... i hope..

    I have been getting up to Avoca recently a bit, playing on the tracks. I first started playing on tracks up there over 10 years ago, and have always wanted a property up there. I didnt care if it was a country shack, or just a block of land. Well recently I go both, just a couple of house blocks, with a little house on it, even though I have tenants in it, I can still stay on the block beside it... but its exciting! So I have been going up there every couple of weeks to mow the lawns, and of course play on the tracks and stop in at the pub for the occasional feed and beer... it would be unaustralian to not do so! haha

    Bought some bits for the prado recently too, so it now has a new 2in EFS lift, front and rear E-Lockers, and a set of play tyres... 285s Pro Comp Xtreme MT2.... it has made it soooo much easier and safer to drive off road without crashing and bashing at stuff to get up tricky spots, im loving it!
    I havent been brave enough to go the hard bits on old bluff track yet... mainly because I have been doing the tracks by myself... which I know is a no no when 4wdriving...

    A couple of pics.... well it wouldnt be a trip report without pics would it!

    If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

    The Pyrenees is a top spot to go for a play, heaps of great tracks around there

    Pity we cant see your pictures, photobucket isn't allowing third party hosting anymore unless you pay a huge ongoing ransom

    I would be keen to see your Prado on its glory, with 33's and twin lockers it will surprise a lot of people with where it will go.

    Cheers Andrew
    Why would I buy something for $10 when I can make it for $20

    It's weird because when the post 1st went up I could see the photos of the White prado and another of someone drinking James Squires by a fire drum but now it is just the photo bucket message

    Google photobucketfix, there are a number of solutions depending on which browser you use.

    Great part of VIC, lived in Avoca for a few years as a kid. My parents owed the Acoca pub. Can't see your picks.

    Can see your pic's now, nice challenging steps. That's the pub I lived in, use to claim the pine tree a few meters from where your machine is parked.
