I did get rid of all my old recovery gear and looking at buying new, may be able to get some before the trip but if not has anyone have equipment? Don't think we will need it but with the rain we are having it never hurts to be prepared!



Don't stress too much about it... I've got snatch straps, spare tyres, max trax, shovels, etc. Also nothing a few 3 litre diesel can't help you out with (Rob has towed me up very steep and rutted out tracks when I overheated my clutch)

One thing that is handy, if you have a towbar, is a recovery point to use a rated bow shackle... about $40 from Super cheap auto.

Looking a bit dicey about the 14th, I thought that being a few months away at the time it would be a sure thing but looks like I'm taking the kids down to their Nanna's in Moruya for the holidays.
If I can get out of it I will definitely come on this trip.

Nathan, decided I'm gonna leave a bit earlier. My father in law is only down for the weekend and hasn't spent much time in the Blue mountains. So I'm gonna leave significantly earlier to make the most of the weekend.

That said, my thoughts are to leave my place in Kogarah around 0700, head up the mountain and see the Three Sisters, from there on to Newens State Forest at the bottom of the Zig zig railway down at Clarence, and go up to a couple of lookouts and do some of blackfellows hand trail.

Then have some lunch and start making our way down past Lithgow out to Oberon and pick up any last minute supplies then as per Michael's directions into the Karanga State Forest headed for the Boyd River campground. All things going well, my aim is to arrive at the campground around 1430-1530.

If you are keen, happy for you to tag along. I'll be on channel 10 and will be around the mulgoa rd turn off around 0800.

Re:


Maybe able to met up near Lithgow, I have things to do in the morning but will still leave around 1300 or possibly a little earlier. Are you running channel 10 on CB or UHF?

All good Griz and understand!

Ok as we are only a few days away where will everyone be camping? I have never camped in this area and unsure of where I am going! I suppose I could just drive around until I find lots of exy's in one area emoticon


Ok after searching on Google maps i believe i have found the camping ground! Get onto Kanangra Rd from Jenolan Caves Rd drive 25 odd K's!!

Hey Nathan...

Yep thats it... its the ONLY camp ground on that road - you can't miss it (there's a drop toilet on the right hand side from memory). Essentially, pass through Jenolan, head up Edith Road, and 5kms later turn off for the Kanagra-Boyd NP / Kanangra Walls lookout. If you've got some time to kill, head up to the look out there - its amazing (although we'll head over there later in the arvo when we get there as well).

Have you got a UHF? We'll call through when we get out of Dingo Dell/Kowmung valley, and on top of the Boyd plateau.

Take your time leaving Sydney, as I reckon we'll get up on the Plateau around 3-4pm.
