Hey Derek, I know a road through GinGin to boolboonda tunnel, then up Wonbah rd to the Geata campsite where you have stayed previously( I presume, as it was in the S10's GPS). Then on to Kalpower and further north ect. Then right over a range to Miriam Vale. Or, and I've never done all of it, up to Rosedale, through Watalgan Forrest to Lowmead and then to Miriam Vale. Done Lowmead to M Vale before but not the full quid through Watalgan. Like I said before, might do a ride in the next 2 weeks to check it out up that way. Jono.

yeah.. i've done the tunnel run past geata and kalpower plenty of times

the section east of the highway is all new to me so give me a yell when you're gooing that way
i actually found the box for that gps with some stuff in it you may want whilst i was moving .. drop in and grab it when ever you're out this way

When

Derek, When are you considering the run to Kroombit ? Be keen to head up on this one - would drive up and join you from Moore Park and could also take anyone else from Brisbane - I can fit 3 bikes on ute and camper trailer

Keen for this.

If it's at a time I can get off work for a bit.


If it's long weekend ish, Sandy can drive me up and hang out with Nikevil on the beach, picking up tonnes of crap to bring home with her, while we go get lost in the bush following the guy with absolutely no idea.

I'm booked for 19 - 23 sept, so could maybe make between 24-29th????

Stricko, if Sandy has to work, I might be keen on some trailer space.

But none of this camping crap for me Derek. I want the executive accom in the house!
(my tent leaks like a teenagers you-know-what, and I can't afford a new one now I've blown all my cash on the Strumzuki)

I could be in bundy on the night of the 24/9, and have 4 - 6 days for a ride.

Not!

Can you imagine the bitch-fight if they see a spectacular piece of driftwood at the same time?
Talk about carnage

I'll check the work calendar next week
