i'm trying to organise a day out for any one interested in having a family fun day. the day would include doing a 4x4 drive then having a picnic lunch some where that the kids could have a run around while the parents relax & get to know other EO members. PS. if it works out then maybe we can make it a regular outing . it will also held on a saturday as well.
the finalised date for this trip is sat 24/1/09. we will meet in Grafton @ 7am (at a place to be decided) and from there we will head to Barugil, to Lionsville, through the rainforest. there will be 2 or 3 water crossings, some intermediate 4wding and we will then stop for lunch @ Malara creek.from there we follow the creek all the way up to Drake. for those who wish to camp overnight there are good camping spots all along the creek. a mate of mine will be our guide for the day as he knows all the tracks of by heart.he also knows alot about the places we will visit,so he can do a running commentry as we go. anyone needing more info.....MM me & i'll foward my mobile no. onto you.cheers :-))
as Hairs said,anyone wishing to shorten the drive on friday night are more than welcome to pitch a tent/camper/caravan in either Hairs's back yard or mine as we have HEAPS of room,cheers.
