    Drop by and grab my GPS and handlebar mount if ya want. Will give you reference points and trails.
    I'm sure the batteries will last a few hours, just enough time to get you lost and not find your way back.

    I'll be going out on Saturday, leaving from gingers at some point, pm me if you want, I don't have any specific plans other than to go riding, get dirty and then find a place for a beer before heading home at some unspecified time.

    Thanks :ear:ear:ear:ear:ear:ear:ear:ear:ear:ear, I might just do that. If I can get out of my leather chaps that is :)
    I do have some bits and pieces of the track in my GPS, from when it turns itself on and off, that might be enough to get me through.
    Don't expect me, but have the Tea ready just in case :rayof

    Pffft, you didn't even stop for a quick dip, I am disappointed :rofl
    I think my boots still have water in them from a few weeks ago when I went for one of my dips.

    You managed to find the 4wd basic training water crossing mud hole:D
    I'm sure all the WA 4wd training companies take their students to that hole to give an experiance of a water crossing

    If any one has some spare time next week, this could be a great opportunity to see some of the country's best riders in action. Unfortunately I can't get away from work. The event is run near Harvey. Details here http://2013a4de.com.au/event-info/

    VOLUNTEER HELPERS NEEDED
    Since we have completed the helper roster and notified everyone, people have been withdrawing so we are in desperate need of more help.

    You'd be wise to keep a close eye on the rainfall in that area this week. It can get slippery real quick....and spoil which is otherwise a great ride.

    Enjoy it if you go.

    Just got back from a business trip to Kalgoorlie. It was damn cold out that way. Add the rain that Koos mentioned and you might need an extra wrap or ten at night!

    Got a new bike and went for a ride to try it out today, Bike has limited suspension travel but a good selection of gear ratios . I thought that was a bit of an over kill with the huge lump of an engine it has, Found out why it has so many gears, the engine is under powered by a heap, must have some thing to do with the weight of the large fly wheel in the belly of the engine. Just need to get some new riding gear the Sidi boots looked out of place with the Lycra pants. Now how often do you service a Giant push bike:lol3.
