From Bris

I just booked a room - going to make the run down from Brisbane.

Got a few days off if anyone wants to come along - lotsa dirt on the way down and see how I feel on the way back

Probably tenterfield on Thurs, Taylors Arm ish on Friday, Sat into Moonan

Sun /Mon to get home - havent put any thought into that yet . . .


The rain plan is to put in the wet gear and slab the back roads

The too much rain plan is to sped the petrol $$$ on Rum and sleep it off in the garden at home

Seems to be the story everywhere - last weeks storms were the first proper rain I've seen in Bris Vegas for a while...

Perhaps the rain could come with me - but follow a day or so behind - I'd be happy with that

Once word gets out I *should* be popular though - paid to ride around the country to bring rain

I love it when a plan comes together.

I've got Thursday on my own - aiming for Tenterfield / Glen Innes - probably the latter.

I will come across the Old Grafton Rd to Dalmorton and meet Carmima there. We'll make Port by the evening and meet Aussie Steve there.

Hopefully Mud and Tar MC at Wauchope are open Sat morning for some fresh rubber. Up the Ox, South on Cells, Nowendoc, Nundle (fuel?) and down Barry into Moonan.


Home on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday will be some sort of reversal of the same - probably crossing the Oxley and heading bush for Taylors Arm / Drake/Tenterfield.

Happy to ride with straglers if there are any about.


Getting thirsty . . .
