Thanks to you both for "draggin" along support for this rally. I have been going to this one since it started and haven't had a bad one yet (disregarding rain and even snow one year)

Hopefully catch up with you both in October.

Catchya.

Dear Aunty,

Your previous comment leads me to think that you are slightly misinformed. I did catch one of those thumpers last year, on an 8lb spinning rod with 2lb line...
You would have been correct in saying that I did not "land" a fish last year and that is because when the big buggers belly hit the beach he high tailed it. Gronk is my witness.

I need you to respond to a mail So that I can go and organise trophies tomorrow.

Catchya.

Gronk!!... Gronk 'saw' you not catch one?! Yes...The kindest thing I can say is you were probably both so heavily impaired, and as such, the alleged 'trout you didn't catch' was most probably a hysterical hallucination triggered by all the fish everyone else were catching...stressful, no?

Aunty, tis the truth and you were off doing ya knitting so wouldn't know who caught what. If "my catch" wasn't so huge, and didn't take so long to get it to the beach Gronk may not have witnessed the battle. My "catch and release" fish was a pearler. This year I will arrange for photographs so you don't continue to poo-poo all that you don't witness yourself.

Even without a catch it is a gem of a place to wet a line, have an ale and tell tall stories.

Catchya.

"tall stories" indeed!..anyway who goes there and chases 'em with 2lb line? That's not fishing line it's spiderweb and bound to break, bumping a leaf in the water will break it. Put a 4 kilo rainbow on the other end and he won't even know he's hooked!...Ding Dong tells the same story every year too...:cl ap

There is always firewalking I suppose but I consider fishing a safer pastime. I did consider knitting but Aunty has that covered!!!

Just sitting under a gum tree overlooking the dams is pleasant, another alternative activity to fishing or firewalking whilst at the Thunder.

Catchya.

The way you blokes sling off @ each other, I'd say this'll be a good rally!

Doc - Hema maps shows a section of dirt in there, between ? Gap Road & Jenkins? St
Then again I've found no map completely accurate!
Cheers

Tar all the way from the New England via Fossiker's Way to Nundle, excellent fun if your suspension isn't too hard! 35k and BillyT53 has the 'record' on a BM!!!.... Or, "...over the top" via Gloucester, Thunderbolt's and Nowandoc. 22k after the Nowandoc sign (stay on Thunderbolt's), go left and all the way to Ham's Crossing, all tar to there and all tar via Port Stephen's Cutting, Dungowan, Woolomin, Nundle. However if you go left at the white house at Ham's Crossing you'll do dirt for 45k to Hanging Rock, passing Ponderosa Park and emerge 1k from the rally site and 7k up the hill from Nundle. For serious dirt addicts there is the "bottom dirt", off the New England towards Timor and the 20 creek crossings, good if there isn't any rain? There are other ways too, via Niangla and other detailed combinations. Serious advriders would know some of these for sure. Either way, Tar or Dirt, the world is your oyster.... I've bashed my old bike across the 'top way' and made it, and I'm pretty average as a dirt rider. Here is a rally video with some 'dirt' content... http://groupspaces.com/thunderrally/pages/videos
