If I was the publican and you turned up, I too would have my nose in the air

But I still luv ya

So Friday night at Taylors Arm, and exactly where is this?

Seemed business as usual for the Xmas thing in December (camping out the back, swimming pool in action) although the 12 that turned up didn't stretch the relationship much.

Change is good though and last year Nundle did open up some opportunities to go on different roads. Maybe the pre-Karuah thing will just fizzle and people will make their own arrangements? Is it just me or is ADV going that way anyway?

My understanding is that Moonan was a yearly get together for
OZ Explorers Group?????? I might have the name wrong. And as Karuah was that same weekend it was a usual 2 event weekend. Ive been to about 3 Moonans and they seem to have dwindled in popularity as they years go on. However thats my opinion only. As for ADV going that way, I think its like anything of this nature is that its an every evolving concept.

The new publican at Moonan Flat is OK he opened up to give us fuel on New Year's Eve (when he was exceptionally busy). There was no way we would have made it back to Gloucester with the remaining fuel we had and he could see that. They were expecting 400-500 folks for NYE and most would be dining as well as drinking. He has cleaned up the toilets and made a few other changes to improve the facilities.
I would be there this year but my F800GS has been sold for salvage after being hit by a car. The driver got fined and I got a trip to hospital to have a screw inserted in my broken wrist
I have been borrowing a mate's WR450 and hope to either buy a WR450 or a KTM 450exc sometime later this year. It's been nice to get off the big pigs and go lighter and more flickable
