Ruby Scoo photos

Post by El_Freddo » Fri May 11, 2012 7:27 pm

G'day all,

Well, I've decided to start a thread that simply has photos of Ruby Scoo in it - where we can all talk about the photos and what's going on in them/or what's happening around them. We'll see how it goes anyway.

And yes, this thread should show how much I do love my subaru - you might think it as being a bit full of myself, maybe it is, but that's not the idea of this thread!

A couple of recent ones:

Ruby Scoo back on the road:

Image

This image "celebrates" Ruby Scoo's return to "one piece" and on the road again. I'm looking forward to going offroad with a crew again! This image is in the high country, Danny's Lookout as is this one:

Image

Mt Feathertop:

Image

Today on the scenic route home:

Image

Memorial of Australia's first controlled flight in 1910 near Mia Mia in Central Victoria.

Lake Eppalock after re-filling in 2011 after hitting an all time low of 5% a couple of years earlier:

Image

I hope you enjoy this thread!

Cheers

Bennie

Good times in the snow, I'm going to miss it this season, I've just been lucky enough to be up here for a while in the pre season.

Totally going to miss it! But been lucky enough to spend a good amount of pre-season time up here :D

Last sunday after some snow thursday night/friday and friday night:

Image

Image

I'm missing it already... specially mucking around in it - still super keen to get some circle work video in the snow :twisted:

I did get lucky on the way off the mt sunday night - I hit some black ice, I didn't think about it when I saw it and kept accelerating, got all 4 sliding towards the guard on the edge of the road, the only thing saving us was the dry bitumen before we got to the guard rail - it still kicked the subi around a bit! But we were safe.

Cheers

Mt Cole last weekend - it was great to have Ruby Scoo out there finally!

Taking a wrong line:

Hanging with Tweety and the H6 Dulagurl:

Found this old growth tree on the side of one of the tracks:

Image

^ I'd love to have seen pre-european settlement in Australia, this is what we would have seen much, much more of in the forests all over the place! I consider myself lucky to have seen this fine example!

On a side track headed home - had to check out some wind generators, unfortunately those pics didn't turn out so well :(

Funny that!

Here's a couple more from the last trip - Wimmera River starting at Mt Cole where the wimmera begins and ending on Wirrengren Plain (dry lake):

:D

Ruby Scoo performed flawlessly and the trip was awesome. It just needed to be about a week longer I reckon! More great times out in her. Now I really need to give her a clean inside and out...

Cheers

I'm itching to get out on some tracks - I know a couple of mates are out there now and it's killing me on the inside! But I've got other things that need tending to first.

Apologies guys, I have no idea what's going on with those images! I always resize them but I don't know if these ones were missed.

Yes, that is Subi Wan Kenobi's Gen1 Lib.
