Any knowledge out there?

The notion is to head from Numeralla to Tinderry Rd, Burra, Angle Crossing, and then Brindabella. Going to Jugiong rather than Tumut.
As I understand it the tripod and other off road vehicles are likely to pollute the Canberra water supply, so Vanities Crossing is now official vehicles only. Haven't been there to confirm, but that's what I've been told.

I went the opposite way, enroute to Sydney for Xmas, a couple of years ago. Really pleasant ride, even though there was one bridge washed out (Burra) and Tinderry Rd was 'closed'. I figured that it was nearly 2 weeks since the rain so they'd just hadn't picked up the signs. There was one bit where I gave a lady heading to the radio tower some assistance throwing some rocks into the only bit of road that was damaged.

thanks

Its Oz Day on Sat and the community breakfast will be at the Oval Memorial, so better to meet at the Hall if you want to go for a ride Sat am with me. I'll try and show you some of my good stuff. Dunno how the tripod will go up some of the ST we could do, so I might have to find a shortcut for Ray, or not Ray?

I located the broken wire in my gps power, so that should be at least reliable and if it gets too iffy, I'll be on my lonesome.

You'll have to remember though, I'll have the videos looking for carnage. This time NOT my own.


And I'd love an IT.

No I wouldn't. I'd just end up hurting myself some more.
