So do we meet at the Belayando crossing? Charlie the bloke from Blackwater is coming he could meet you at Dysart and you can pick a route up to the Belayando. Otherwise we can still meet at Clermont as planned and head up, just means another 150k's for us , oh my aching butt!

OK ladies, calm down. I just rang the MT Cooln pub. We are good to pitch tents on the grass at the pub. Meals will be on in the evening. and as before you can't get any fuel there.

I'll be hitting the Bowen river pub just after opening time (10am) . Have a beer and head over the mt coolon pub via the dam , thats if anyone wants to have a gander at it. If anyone closer wants to meet at the bowen river pub ,give me a yell. It might be a long haul for you to get there from barky OBJ.

Well which way are we going? We are coming in from the west, so i have to either fuel up at Clermont or the Belyando crossing, then go to the dam and back to a camp site. Then next day i either get fuel from Collinsville or suck it and see. Why don't you meet us at the Belyando crossing Midday and we head to the dam and onto Bowen river or Mt Coolon, whichever? Is there tucker at Bowen River.

Right'o Clermont to the dam and back to Clermont is 600+k's, no can do on fuel range. Have to go to Bowen river then Collinsville for fuel, so no point camping at Mount Coolon unless we organize a fuel drop.

Barra rang ole luv'y at Mount Coolon today about getting some fuel in there for us, otherwise it will be fill up at Belayando and head to Bowen river after the dam. If she comes good we can stay at Mount Coolon and spend some coin there. Unless of course everyone wants to see bowen River pub, then we ditch Mount Coolon.

Yes, ole Luv at Coolon is already in the gun sights. Why don't you run up the west side of the belyando, and we save that area around OBB's joint till Saturday, that way we're not covering old ground. Probably nothing out there but little weiners anyways.
