    Solution to dryness : BEER.

    Solution to whining about weather while on a fantastic ride : HTFU, and BEER.

    Solution to the face in the photo : Your MUM will always love you, despite your rotten Brisbane Lions cap.:lol3

    Solution to my envy : NONE, I'm afraid. Wish I was there too.:y0!

    Only thing I can think of is out over the Brindies to Tumut, up to Gundagi. Cross the Murrumbidgee into gundagi& then under the freeway on the north side of the river on the Gundagi to Wagga rd. Follow through & just past Nangus is a right turn to Bethungra. Just north ( i think ) of the village is a turn left which would take you to stockinbingal & along that road you cross the Coota to Temora rd. Only dirt would be the brindies to just over the goodradigbee river. Havent been along all of it but the run from gundagi to Bethungra is nice

    Another option might be to head north from CBR, out through Gunning and on toward Boorowa - then basically west to Temora, cutting between Young and Cootamundra - could do pretty much all of that by dirt roads / farm lanes, but would need a decent map / GPS - or Baza ...
