    Melbourne - Mount Buller day trip September 26.. Is this courageous?

    So I've seen some pics of what seems to be a supercharger at the Shell in Euroa. By my calculations this should make a day-trip from Melbourne to Mount Buller and back a doddle. Has anyone used the supercharger there? Is it open? I'm thinking about doing this tomorrow (before the snow runs out)...
