Hill End 2nd & 3rd of Feb
 
How about Hill End next weekend???

I'm thinking an over nighter.
Meet Richmond Macca's, up Bells Line, turn off at ZigZag down to Lidsdale via Blackfellows hand track. Lidsdale to Capertee, Capertee to Sofala via Turon Gates and then Sofala to Hill End. Stay in either the pub or the holiday ranch. Back home on Sunday via the bridle track???

Sounds like a good plan. I was thinking of leaving from Zigzag etc and onto Too Many Gates rd this Sat as well. What time will you be at the Zig zag? I'll have a DR650 and a friend on a 640.

About 11:30am. I've gotta drop someone at the airport unfortunately.

Great news GSA. Are you ok with our late departure time or are you heading ahead of us and meeting up later?
We have to drop someone to the airport. They should have left today but are heading to QLD and for obvious reasons their flight was cancelled and rebooked for Saturday... Bugger!

I think we'll skip Baal Bone. It was pretty bad just up the hill from the swamp when I was down there a couple of months back. With all this rain I'd suggest that it'd be impassable by all but very competent riders on serious enduro bikes. I wouldn't even try and get the 990 down the rocks to the swamp/rear of Baal Bone.
Having said that, if anyone wants to go that way we could just wait a Capertee.
