Nice report! You guys are machines!
Nice photos! Love the Snow Gums.
Have you got a copy of Brookes' 'Watersheds of the King, Howqua & Jamieson...'? It may have some tracks that SV, etc don't have, or maybe it's further East.

The Rooftop's maps cover all of these areas very well and have some handy tips for hikers and 4 WD users.

Hello p_c_v, I have a question about one of your photographs. The one with a fallen tree across a track, just beyond a bridge over a creek. Could you please indicate the location?

That tree was cut by the Forestry department the day before we appeared. Another ski forum member was there doing a Mt. McDonald trip via the evil North spur route. The Big cut log is located near where the campsite at Low Saddle Road , Brock's road and the Low Saddle road bridge all intersect. My information is that you can get a 4 WD up the loose surface on the new detour around that massive sawn log. Take a chainsaw and know how to use it on large poles ( use wedges etc. ) just in case. The Brock's road area from 8 Mile Gap to Cairn Creek track Intersection is a relatively remote area and timber does fall and block the carriageways.
