    About 6 years ago I drove a Mack truck up to the top of Craigs Hut.

    When I was working with the Alpine Resorts Commision, I was the first person to get a Subaru Sportswagon to the top of Stirling. Everyone knows that Guvvie cars go anywhere and go faster than anything except a rental.

    Hey, positron007 points for driving a truck up there! Let me know I'm always up for a ride.

    Wyno, haha nothing beats a rental, Surprised the Subi go up there, a few nice big spoon drains you would of had to tackle,

    At the top, driving into the car park there is a tight right and a banked rock wall. I didn't make the turn so I just drove up the wall.
    You should have seen the faces of all the guys in their 4WDs
    LMAO.

    I am probably purchasing this weekend, so the weekend after could be a possibility.
