Was out that way yesterday looking at a few paddocks. Only way we could get around was on a Kubota mule. Fun fun fun.

Roads were OK though.

Hardly a gentleman's ride, Happy!

Hey Geoff.. Fat Max will spend yet another rainy day in the shed!

Here's hoping the forecast of rain all week including next weekend is wrong!

Hey Cruz,

Had a bloody great day, all roads were rideable except the two roads up the head.

We began the day with the booring run out to boonah then heading to lake mogera (north side). we then went up mt Edward rd (I think) and across to the govenors chair.

From the chair we backtracked about ten km and turned south on a dirt road that joined up with the White Swamp / Head road.

We turned onto the head road and began crossing flooded causeways until we found one that was just too deep.
We then backtracked and headed south again on the White swamp road until the next turn off to the Head (N.S.W side).
Creek to deep again!

Backtracking again till the turn off to Maroon dam then headed east until another dirt road on the left (don't know the name).
Followed this around to the Boonah / Rathdowney Rd then did another short dead end run.

At this time we decided to head home, by following the same route (but much much faster).

The entire day was awesome about 350ks traveled.
The roads were excellent with almost no greasey stuff.
Deepest creek crossed was about 600
