Confirmed for me & breeza. Leaving Katoomba Friday morning 10:40-11:am for Mt Solitary with Breeza and possibly with wentworth and bushchef. Just depends on how early we get away and how we feel. If we have a spare hour or two we might go down fuber steps and along federal pass and meet Wentworth and Bushchef at the base of the golden stairs.

Ladies and Gents I hope you have a good meet and hope the ice keeps out of your bags in the negitives here again and I am in Queensland.
And believe me even though I will be in a heated house , queen bed , hot water on tap , a solid roof over my head and out of the winds and direct weather I do wish I could attend the meet with you guys.

Morning All,
I'm not going to be able to make it for a overnighter which leaves me gutted.... Trying to work it for a walk-in walk-out same day so I can meet you good folk.

Even if you can make it for the day it would be good.... but you can only do what you can do!

Unfortunately, I have to bail. Wife has to go to Canberra for work and I have to look after kids. Rather gutted, but not much I can do, looking forward to the meet report and hopefully there will be another meet before the end of the year.

I bought a down jacket for Kedumba, have to give it a work out on another trip.

Anyway, enjoy!!!

Sorry I can't be with you all on this meet - I just can't do a long walk-in, but I'll definitely be at the next car camping meet (Corin, were you thinking of us going to the same place as last time?)

Anyway, I hope you'll all have a great time and I'll look forward to trip reports and photos.

Hi Blooz, How was your trip? Never saw any pictures yet did I miss the thread???


If it is left to me to orgainse the next meet, my vote will be for the same as last time, but if someone else wants to organize something I will happily go anywhere! I will start a thread to get something happening in the next few weeks, unless somebody beats me to it.

For transparency and safety sake and so people can organize walking in with a buddy if they dont already have one I encourage members to post their estimated times in this thread also.

I will have my spot tracker on while traveling so anyone here can follow me online by clicking on this link. Orange dots are my location posted every 10minutes. When I reach camp I will send an OK signal which will show up as a green marker. I will then turn the tracker off for the night. In the morning I will resume tracking in which case you will see the orange dots beginning to plot again.

If the above link isnt working for whatever reason you can view the default spot page here. (This only last for 7 days however and also shows previous tracks)

Blake & Co - if you're driving and intend to leave the car somewhere, please don't leave it at the Golden Stairs overnight. That place has a long history of break-ins and vandalism. We generally drop people and their rucksacks off there, and the driver/s park their vehicle/s in one of the side residential streets, like Cedar Street or Oak Street, then walk back.

Have a great trip (tax time for me :piange:)
