Hi Mike,
John and I are also leaving today. Going to take a couple of days to get to Cobar where we are booked in at the van park on Friday. Looking forward to the Gathering and to meeting everyone.
regards,
Heather

See you tomorrow in Brewarrina, Mike.

Looking forward to getting away from the rat race for awhile. Will be a good trip and I hope no more accidents for the kids. Having Peta break her arm on Saturday has made for an interesting few days, luckily she only needs a brace and no plaster :)

Cheers Kev

Hi Kev,

Can you also find out what Louth road from Cobar is like please and whether it is likely to be closed dur to wet weather? Looks like it is sealed for part of the way. We are planning to come from Cobar as its more direct for us from the East (South) Coast.

It looks like much needed and welcome rain for the Property owners even if it does make things a bit more interesting for us all trying to get there.

thanks,
Heather

Heather,

I have a reply from Liz :)

" I would say all roads will open tomorrow afternoon as there wasn’t anymore than about 15mm anywhere. Latest would be Friday, and there is no more rain predicted for at least till well after your visit."



Cheers Kev

thanks Kev,

We aren't arriving at Trilby until Saturday so it shouldn't be a problem by then anyway.

Heather

Fiona and I are off Friday early and heading for Mulga Creek Hotel. There has been a bit of rain in Bourke area so hopefully the roads will still be open. Then on to Trilby on Saturday AM.

Bourke to Louth on the Eastern side should stay open as it is reasonable gravel, Louth to Trilby should be ok as well as it is also a good gravel road.

Will keep everyone posted as to how much rain has fallen when I hear from Liz later today :)

Thanks Kev I will keep a close eye out anyway as I've just got over a battle with a couple of very anxious police officers over a closed road incident and I'm not keen to do two in a row! Your advice confirms local advice I've been given in the last couple of days, just want to be sure!

Sometimes rain arrives despite the best local research & predictions, and when one gets caught up in it there are those out there who are ready to pounce before asking questions!

Thanks Kev.

It's really good to see the rain all over the place regardless so all is looking good, as long as we can get past the Mulga Creek Hotel.

Ruth and I were at Mungo yesterday but abandoned our plans to travel up the Darling on the strength of the forecast. We returned to Balranald and are now moving North on the Kidman Way. At Griffith tonight. Heavy rain through this area today. The farmers must be delighted. See you all soon.
Cheers,
Kevin

The current road conditions are on the Bourke shire website, currently all roads around Louth are closed. The east side does have more sand and gravel then the west side between Bourke and Louth however there is a section of black soil which will stop you in your tracks, it's between Torale and Louth.
There has just been another heavy down pour at Bourke, my best case would be the roads re opening Friday or maybe Saturday if it stays overcast.
