    Given the current weather I reckon you could stay at home and the "Alpine" will come to you........:vardy


    ...but I digress. I'm thinking (a slow process, with interruptions for tea breaks) I might show on Sat night, but I have to score a new sleeping bag first (my old faithful decided to give the zipper short shrift at the WTC in Vic last weekend).

    We'll see. I live in hope.

    Old? :hmmmmmWimping?:ddog C'mon poofters, you can do better than that.

    I'm having coniptions at the price of sleeping bags. I only want to sleep in one, I didn't know I needed to bring a cash dowry too. And I'll bet any money that the goose didn't see a red cent from the down filling either.
    I'm interested in one that's on special after the weekend, typical eh. Like Malcom said, life wasn't meant to be easy.

    Or cheap either, it seems.:deal

    Bit of both mate. Otherwise all's well. :D


    Its over the other side of the Brindies from us mate. Brindabella Valley, about an hour or so riding time depending on speed :evil. Probably be leaving Yass about 10-10.30 o'clock or so if for keen for a spin. I can firm up the times if your up for it.
    Cheers
    Fati

    P.S. Here's a link to google maps. This is the turn off to the rally.
    Cheers

    I've decided that I will do a day ride up to the Alpine rally. Mnt Creek/Brindabella rd up - Wee Jasper forest road and the trig on the way home.

    Leaving 1030 sharp Yass Caltex Comur street. Should be a lovely day for it.
    Cheers

    Thanks Fati - I'll try to get there by 10:00, but go without me if not - Sat morning a bit uncertain.

    In case running late, looking for good directions - the web says: Brindabella Valley on the eastern side of the Goodradigbee River, approx 8kms from the CBR-Tumut road.

    I'm assuming that the CBR-Tumut Rd is the Brindabella Rd? And that if I get to the bridge (@Crace rd) I've gone too far?

    If that's all correct, is the turn off close to or between any other known turnoffs? For example (coming from CBR side), past Blue Range Rd? Past Piccadilly?

    Will there be a sign on Brindabella Rd?

    Just get to Piccadilly - then head down to the valley, as you get to the bottom of the valley, it opens up & the turnoff is not far away on your left - coming from that direction [heading west]
    [​IMG]
    Head down that road [be a bit of flood damage], you'll go through several properties [past Brindabella Station], eventually you'll cross a small wet creek, about 1 - 2km from there, but it should be sign posted by Saturday.
    Cheers
