Firstly, well done team OBJ
Damn you'd need grip warmers up there by the sound of it! I heard there was a serious injury up there, how's he going??
Thanks for the austrian princess shot....

Secondly welcome Dustin, were you the lost Ten rider studing his map on the road north of clermont several weeks ago??? I was in the truck other wise i would have stopped & helped a poor yammy rider ...
I'm north of Clermont, need to do some reccy work south west of Clermont at some stage if you are interested.
Cheers OB

Richmond Injury

From the Pioneer Valley Enduro Club:

Pioneer Valley Enduro Club, Committee and Members would like to wish Damon Adams a speedy recovery and the best of luck with his surgery. Damon was injured in a race at Richmond on the weekend and is recovering in Townsville Hospital. Hope everything is progressing according to plan and you are back up on your feet and home again very soon.

Run to the Cape.

Right'o how is everyone progressing, I have just about all my stuff sorted just waiting on my new clutch plates and cable and rear tyre. Spoke to Sitdownman Saturday he's done nothing as usual Looks like the Western run will be blessed by.
Me
Charlie
Macadoo
Sitdownman
A bloke with 3Legs!
and possibly one more
Jock is going via Timbucktu! with a couple of Sepo's
Haven't heard from Old Gra for awhile but he might be in as well.

Are we right to leave Saturday 4th at daybreak from Bark'y pick up Sitdownman in Longreach and head for Richmond, will camp out the back of the Federal Hotel, or get a room if you want. Good tucker,

Who's coming from the East, other than A.Dreamer?

Craig have you found any sites that offer up to date river levels, like the Pasco on the Frenchmans track, or do we just use the jungle drum method or dial a friend?

I'm not sure where he is from, I just assumed he was from out west, some of the family turned up on monday so he was well looked after, I was tempted to pinch his packet of Tim Tams from his bedside table while he can't run.
