Glasshouse Mountains Day Out 4WDing – June 2012

On the 3rd June, 2012, we were joined by 3 other vehicles and headed into the Glasshouse Mountains to go 4WDing. The weather was great after having rain for a few days which made for some fun 4WDing.  We came along some tracks that were reasonably difficult… and some more difficult.  We dragged a log in reverse for a bit too.

Since purchasing our Nissan Navara D40 new on 8th April, 2012, we have added the ARB front bar and in May we had ARB fit the side steps.


And they thought they could push him out!!

First Chris got bogged going down a really wet track… Needed the Maxtrax to get him out.  Then Chris got himself down into a hole on a slippery track and everyone thought he would need to be towed out by the look of it but after a bit of contemplation, he just reversed out easily…. We really had a good time…

Watch the video footage below for some fun and adventure!

We look forward to getting our Nissan Navara D40 lifted 2 inches and I have suggested some bigger all terrain tyres on her to be able to get down and dirty even better with a bit more lift.  Our next addition though is the canopy, then drawers with slide tops and install the slide for our ARB fridge/freezer we just purchased.. Anyone would think we have shares in ARB??? We don’t.  Just like their product.  We’ve got something special in mind for the canopy though…

What a great day we all had at Glasshouse Mountains.  Thank you to Chris & Emma for inviting their friends to join us.  Can’t wait to get back.  It is only 40km from home so close enough for a great day out.  There are so many tracks to do and always something new to see.  We take a picnic lunch and park up to eat.  There are areas of the forestry great for trail bikes aswell and a few people get there on the weekends with their family and friends to enjoy these tracks too.  I’m getting too old for the trail bikes.. will stick to my Harley.  Might see you there next time when we go 4WDing…
