Remember it well. So would my girlfriend, who was on the back of the TT500. No cheating by resting on the humps either - they weren't put in till later. Even trickier was the unnamed and overgrown shortcut from Nine Mile Track that dropped onto the Barry Way between Sandy Creek Track and Sheep Station Creek. In those days you could do Tin Mines, Cowombat Flat, Byadbo wilderness and the Ingegoodbee all the way from Suggan Buggan to Thredbo. Progress! A couple of shots from Cowombat - one with the wreckage of the DC3 and another with her left foot in Victoria and her right foot in NSW.
