[QUOTE=Andy_P;20379354]How long are you going for? I would dearly love to join you, but I have issues with annual leave time...

The road from Khancobin up to Kiandra is a must. There is a hikers hut up there somewhere if you are doing the camping thing. Also lots of 4wd tracks off the main road that I would love to explore. I had the triumph sprint up there, so it was off limits for me.

I would suggest spending a night at the start of the snowies part. Give yourself a minimum of 2 full days on the roads up there so you can stop and check everything out. Plenty of this stuff:



Hey Andy,
Thanks for the info. I reckon 8 to 10 days but i will suck it and see!
I will be camping with the occasional pub bed thrown in.

Not off topic, but........

.....I don`t want to start a thread about it just yet. Anyone who is planning on doing the Border Run and wishes to get a room (before the Far Riders snaffle them all up), Allie at the border village is accepting emails. She can be contacted at: bordervillagerh@bigpond.com

Dont get me wrong, nothing bad about white shirt, but the one in pink has it I think. Let me check up on that again.

Only 29 degrees here at the moment (as of 1330 anyway), might etch up a few more degrees as the late afternoons get pretty unbearable but thats alright, you'll seldom find me without a beer in hand by 4'oclock or there abouts

Bloody funny because it was 10 or 11 degrees at 0630 this morning when I rode to work and I couldn't help feel that it was a bit cool, now I'll be nice and warm for the ride home.
