Instead of slabbing it up the towers road to get to talki you have several options, come up the Ken Logan road which runs right past home, turn left at mT Maclaren grain depot, then across to the kilcummin T junction you can go right there & travel up the coolan road abit & turn left at dooruna & across to talki & avon.
Or left at Kilcummin T junction then right onto golden downs road & up to talki, avon etc.
thanks obb,either way will depend on what time we get away.will probably come back down and take the mt mclaren rd,or ol obj will blow a gasket.make sure you lock your front gate with this mob about.

Then 250 after lunch to Bowen river via the dam, i'll be necking my first pot at 4pm sharp on the left hand bar stool near the door.

Looking for some local knowledge....
I have to leave the truck & the cook in Rocky for a week, going to throw the scooter on the back & ride home, what's the most rugged way home through the back way??
Avoiding most tar i can of course!

Dont know about closer to rocky mate,but duaringa up the appis creek road is good,if the mckenzie is low enough.then a quick squirt over the marlbourgh range,left onto clark creek,right onto rolfe creek,straight across the beef road onto warick park road and come out just south of norwich park mine.left on bity for a km,right onto boolbun something rd over the railway line brings you out on cotherstone rd,a right then aleft onto retro new cory rd brings you out just west of lords table. Easy.

Cool thanks charlie, my maps show quite a few bush tracks through the middle there , but they are prob unused & private so might go the way you have suggested!

Hey OBJ 40mm here yesterday, settled the dust nicely!

Bowen river to Springsure

Change of plans, Johno 950 came up with a better offer, this looks more interesting than going past Kilcumin, nothing out there but small weiners anyway.

Yeh mate shoot me a GPS file to kenlogannj2@bigpond.com if it's a gpx file it will run on my phone anyway. I'm thinking i might take the old faithful XR that way i will have a bit over 500k range, that should get me lost in the middle there somewhere!! can you get across the fitzroy at the bridge north west of ridgelands or is it a little low bridge??
