Just to let you know my son and I loaded up Quads and went to RWED game checkpoint at Mile 222. From Ross River the first 100 km north was pretty good, the last 140 km took 6 hours.
Then the RAIN started at KM 100.
The first crossing at the Airport was bad enough my son an I decided to go to the MacTung mine on quads and check river levels in 4 hours or so.
We met 2 locals up hunting, and we shared army rations and coffee and information.
They had a Chev blazer and were really concerned about being trapped behind the rising rivers.
We had crossed a small creek on the way to the MacTung mine and 2 hours later the creek had risen enough to push my 850 scrambler sideways.
We got back to the Check station and the river had risen at least 8 inches in 3 hours, and the rain had not slacked off.
The forcast was for 3 mm a day, but we were getting at least 3 mm an hour.
With mountain rivers taking 2 -3 days to return to old levels after the rain stops and no slacking off of the rain we decided to return another day.
It was incredible mountain rain, or we would still be up riding...
