    Went and did a bit of boot camping in Coffs Harbour on the long weekend. No pictures of any hard stuff, but some nice tracks and scenery down there. Joined up a few really nice tracks, cleared some forest from recent rains and generally had a ball.

    Sounds good mate, maybe some input for idea's and get the stars to align.

    Haven't been getting much riding in lately, so it was good to get away for a few day's.

    Overnight boot camping sounds pretty good tREV.

    Mate, that looks cool. The exact sorta terrain that had me pondering the value of a tight group as opposed to solo type stuff. Stuff you just cannot do on your own lol. You must know that Coffs area pretty well by now. Demo soon?

    Hey Smithy, don't know about knowing it fairly well, we ride around lost most of the time, the problem is because its so long before we go back its all new again(I have the memory of a gnat). Need to get down there more often that's for sure. Your more than welcome to come next time mate, would be great to get a few together and head down that way, its a pretty massive area.
