    Me and a cubbla blokes are going to the NSW sidecar Rally as you possibly know. I'm starting this thread and hope to post my location each day, or intended location next day so any inmates can plug along or come visit or I might stuff up and need a hand.
    We leave Monday morning and are camping over at a mate's bush camp near Mila NSW then plan to wander up to maybe Yass and say g'day to Bazza. After that I have no idea but want to get to O'Connell Friday arvo.
    Cheers,

    Doonie.

    At Belangolo state forest in among the plne trees. Fabulous ride so far. Managing 300 k days. Took 7 hours yesterday from Mila to Captains Flat by going the back way to Dalgety from Bombala then to Nimitabel 98 percent dirt then east of the main drag mostly dirt to Captains Flat.
    At the moment we dont know where we are going ( not even sure where we are) until we get there. Sorry Baz and Bev, we stayed to far east. Mebbe on the way back in a cubbla weeks. Dunno where we are going tomorrow.
    Took eight hours to do 300 today. Great blokes, terrific roads. Beer o,clock now.
    Will be at O,Connell Friday. Caravan park tomorrow for showers and clothes washing.
