Well folks, time again to hitch the old Gazal behind the old Jack & go for a drive..
for a month..not going out of NSW this time, as all the far flung outback has been done & time to slow the pace a bit. Also time to follow our new found hobby..canoeing.
So the paddles & lifejackets etc are packed, along with a little "lectric motor" in case we get tired.
Route includes Wellington, Coonamble, Lightning Ridge, Bingara, Copeton Dam,
Woody Head, Wooli, Repton.
Will call on a couple of mates & down copious reds & tell a few porkies.
Well, better keep packing...keep the joint tidy while I'm gone wont you ?
cheers....oldbaz..& the childbride..:)))).

Axle! I thought those boots would be worn out, the amount of time people tell you where to go, you should have holes in your socks :)) Michael

Baz,

That big dam near Wellington might be good for a paddle, and motor back to the Jack.

As long as the wind is not too severe!

Safe travelling,

Bob

You are absolutely right Baz. We are off next week for a couple of months. We plan to drive some iconic tracks, weather permitting, to end up in the Centre.

Just south of Woody Point, in on the coast from Maclean, is a NP camping area at Red Cliff where you can share space with dozens of 'roos. A bit further south, on the same road, is Brooms Head (caravan park) and Sandon River that has canoeable water. Of course, some of the rivers behind Grafton are legendary canoe and kayak territory. We did the Old Grafton Glen Innes Road through there a few weeks ago, but not with a canoe, of course.

But your basic itinerary looks great. Best wishes to you and your good wife from me and mine.

Cheers,

Kevin
