    1 week forecasts are inaccurate. I reckon I’d have a better chance of predicting the correct weather in October by tossing a coin.

    At least Kombi’s are big enough to just throw in some wet weather gear with the luggage...;).

    Not cancelling your accomodation booking, leave and time away from home, based on a long range weather forecast? :p

    It would take an impassible flood, to MAYBE consider changing my plans.....;)

    Rain, hail, snow or sun.....we’ll be there! :)

    Yes, I agree doubtful at Old Bar, or on the way.

    BUT, in 1989, on the October long weekend, it did snow here, that even settled. Woke up to white surroundings! :eek:

    Never since - climate change. ;)

    A cold compression on an injury is the recommended treatment isn’t it Steve?
    Cold beer on hand injury = ideal! :D

    Been a direction change for me, was planning to go via the back country route but Irene has decided to stay with her brother in Canberra :( so, looks like I'm going to have to deal with the mongrel Pennant Hills road after all. :mad:

    Whoo Hoo getting a tad excited. I was starting to worry about being able to get there. As most of you know we moved North a further 600klms we booked Old Bar as we were leaving last year not knowing what our future held, we knew we would be moving but not where.

    We have been self funded after the move but knowing at some point Andy would need to obtain some form of work, part time or casual. Everything has been done around the new home and Andy is now bored!!!!!!!!!!!! He applied for a couple of full time jobs expecting nothing as our area is the highest unemployment area in QLD, well he got them both. 'Start Tuesday' after the long weekend. 1000klms in a Kombi in one day and coordinating with boarding kennel times that wasn't going to make Old Bar a possibility. Some negotiation and now he starts Wed.

    See you all there.....can't wait.

    Great to hear Lorraine

    Congrats to Andy on the new job and to you both for traveling all the way down to Old Bar. Bring the pooches too.

    The weather looks ugly for the beginning of next week then warming up for our weekend with the odd storm in there....should be interesting seeing max is coming and he hates storms.
