Off-roaders, campers, fishermen, outdoorsmen, photographers, surfers and musicians: they create things, they explore, they embark on adventures and then gather around the campfire to share those experiences with their friends. This blog is our attempt to capture the warmth and glow of the campfire and share those conversations and laughter with the world.

We left bright and early Friday morning. We were aiming for 5am, but we didn’t get the WK2 fully packed and rolling down the highway until nearly 6:30am. After a quick stop at McDonalds for the traditional road trip breakfast we were on our way. The trip up was full of laughs and lots of ideas about which tracks we wanted to tackle with our new gear.
Once we got to Land Cruiser Mountain Park it felt good to get out and stretch the legs. It’s about a 3 hour drive North from the Gold Coast with a stop for petrol in Kilcoy. Land Cruiser Mountain Park is a beautiful 10,000 acre Wilderness Camping and 4wd Park with over 200km of tracks. The camp areas are large with basic amenities.

I especially wanted to know how they would effect the approach angle when off-road.View Full Article →
