I was thinking that very thought Pete. You might be on the money there.

Good work,

Somewhere in the Vic high country....  Anyone familiar with Mt Buller area in the early '80s ?

Pete

Gedday men, ah that'd be me  :) I doubt it's Buller, too many trees on the hill.(they're not snow gums). There's nothing behind its so it's the highest point and the summit of Buller is above the tree line.  I'll look into it though to be sure.

Nice deduction though  ;)

If only the LH FFR was more visible, it might be 30-128!

Buller has been cleared a lot for infrastructure, I had been thinking it was there or Mt Baw Baw with which I am not familiar. The closed up civvie & mil vehicles and the skifield type buildings suggested somewhere high in VIC to me. Buller is nice and close to Pucka.

Aye, the closeness to Pucka certainly doesn't rule it out, that's why I'm not completely certain. I'll check with the Resort Management Board.

Any one thought of doing a google street view search of the suggested locations?

https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Mt+Buller+VIC+3723/@-37.1491552,146.4468828,16z/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x6b28824a10d37e07:0x40579a430a05470

No but it's too far in the past Scott

But the topography doesn't change.

Anyway won't Find me sleep out field unde a hootchie up there!  Oh no crossed threads I'm really confused now! Lol

Thredbo perhaps ?

I did a couple of Ration resupply runs to the 'Army Alpine Lodge - Thredbo' in the early 1980's to maintain a reliable beer supply to officers on adventure training there.

Seriously we're talking a DO913 with the cargo tray full of pallet end VB etc !

That was late 1984 or 1985

Cheers

Hi all

Does this vehicle still survive today or maybe owned by a member on the forum ?

Have been asking around and spoke to a bloke who started a ski lodge up on Buller in the late 70s and he says it's definitely not Mt. Buller. He thought it might be in NSW or ACT?

The mystery deepens
