Had a day to play with the kids so decided to head up to o'Tooles and meet up with Grey Ghost (GG) and Ghost Patrol (GP) and kids etc.

Reached the dam wall and aired down ready for the treck in and decide to try and reach them on channel 25.

The Dam wall, looking the other way!

Glad i tried as they were already half way to Walhalla with Boxer Jon (BJ) in tow.

So I decided to turn right rather than left and headed South to meet them




We met up at the Wally pub for lunch for an hour or two, had lunch and let the kids play with the dogs.

Then it was time for the Coxy clan to head off and the Ghost clan to head for the mines. Thanks to BJ I checked out the easy tracks to Brunton's Bridge with him and then headed south to find water. We trecked in via Cooper's Creek (was packed with cars and people swimming with blow-ups and all sorts) and then hit Brunton's. It was sensational.. The kids really enjoyed it and even i got my boots off to have a paddle with them!




Hats off to the Falcon wagon driver!!!!


Also not quite sure why people would decide to camp right on the track, even thought there are two exits to the river???????


All in all, a great day out and glad we could meet up with the crew that were camping up there.

Seen people camped in that spot before. They must not mind the noise / dust of passing vehicles etc. Personally, I would be camping elsewhere. Beautiful area though.
