will be good to see you toddy!


son is coming in his ranger

I've just wired up the second fridge for the beer in that case !

I also made the mistake of looking at the forecast!

Thredbo friday afternoon for me
 
@Almostunseen , Hamish, Sunday night?
Saturday night or Sunday Morning at McKillops Bridge?
@billolga Will only be able to leave Sydney Sunday morning at this rate, so hoping to tee up with you lot on at Jacksons Crossing on Sunday night, Driving to Buchan via road then taking Buchan Obrost Rd in.
If I'm able to escape by Saturday night then we may travel over the night and arrive Sunday Morning at McKillops but that is very unlikely, but, I will push to try make it.


What's his name?
Some may say Trevor

A few of us are doing the Kosciuszko summit walk on the Friday, we will be camped at Thredbo Diggings Thursday and Friday nights before heading to McKillops Bridge on the Saturday.
Might be a no go now they expect up to 40cm snow with blizzards lol

The weather is really against you guys, be careful and take extra caution on the river crossings, they will be flowing hard !!
