Hey so I've got a ticket to this thingy now....

I'm planning to ride up via Wonnangatta Station. So I'll probably arrive in my usual fashion - late, filthy and broken. Look for the 950 thats obnoxiously loud and in need of a wash (the owner, that is).

Assuming, that is, that I arrive at all, and that the whole of Gippsalnd doesn't catch fire. AGAIN.

Anyone know any good camping spots nearby?

Dunno yet. When did you plan to leave?

2 4x4s from Canberra meeting us in Cooma at a time to be determined. Depends on when Sandra can get out of work. We figure if we are hanging about in town at or near the office it'll put some pressure on her to get out the door. It'll likely be midday, so we'll probably do Barry Way, Limestone, Bogong High Plains etc. Depending, we'll be on the Tenere or 4x4. I expect it'll end up being the 4x4. Maybe we'll do Mt Hope Road. Pinnibar has been ruled out 2 up on the Tenere.

Should be there about lunch time or early afternoon Friday, we had been going to leave Thur. and take a slightly more convoluted route but or dog sitters aren't available On Thur night now, so we will just come straight down the slab on Friday morning.

I don't have any plan at this stage. Let me know when you have a plan, then I'll make one. :

No worries Steve, these fires could affect plans also.
Hi Canary, might see you down there. :

I'll be there, only found out on the weekend at the KRR, have just booked my accommodation and ticket, arriving before lunchtime Friday, provided that the road to Dargo is opened due to bushfires.

I managed to get through yesterday coming down from Dargo to home as I'm a local resident and the coppers manning the road blockades understood. But if the wind shifts, it may be a different story. The fire is still burning, but with no threat to life or buildings.

Just a quick message to advise that BB63 has had an off on his way back to QLD from the film festival and is currently in Albury hospital waiting for surgery for his fractured tibial plateau and shoulder.

Another inmate Medic was travelling with him and will stay in Albury till he knows that BB63 is okay.

Hope all goes well Brian and such a shame that it would have spoilt such a fun weekend.

Thanks Chris for staying with him and keeping his spirits up, great mate.
