Offroading | 37 miles
Bellthorpe Daytrip Run....Headed off again for a bit of a explore up through Bellthorpe SF again to see what has changed up that way. Took the zook instead of the Disco as I'm more confident of what the little zook can do where as with the Disco, I'm still a bit nervous as to its ability and getting stuck up at Bellthorpe by myself in the Disco is not a good thing........

Great way to start off with a few little washouts and rocky sections. One little washout gullies provided some playtime, but unfortunately for...
