Lol.

Capt. Arthur Phillip said something simillar to:

If those living in the hovels and slums of London could see the paradise to which they have sent us.

He was describing his meeting with the aboriginals of my area. They had food in abundance. .

Having some british (pommy) friends ........................ many have asked why their ancestors were not theiving scum so they could have been sent and thus the descendants grow up in this joint.

Well having spent time in both, all I have to say is I'd rather be in New Zealand.

Might as well rekindle this thread.

First pic is taken in the middle of the Bell River outside Wellington. One could say it is kind of dry (first time I have ever been this way and seen no water at all).





















One could say that there has been some time spent enjoying the surroundings ............

^^^^^ re your dry river bed ....


Went through Denman in car the other day. The riverbed was as dry as a bone. All surrounding paddocks starting to look more dust than stuble.
Got up the Bylong Valley and we drove through the heaviest rain storm Ive seen in years. Even flash flooding at Breakfast Creek.
Overtook the rain into the yumcha at Rylestone and the storm caught us again whilst we were eating on the verandah. Mini flash floods in the main street. Was magnificent cos they sure needed it.

Yeah around Mudgee seems to get the rain but a little further afield and nothing happening.

Hunter was low when I last went over it a month back and most of the creeks are dust but hit Mudgee and all is green, dams are full ..........

That was likely the day my place had a lightning storm, thunder and we thought great, water .............. and that was it as it headed Dunedoo/Mudgee direction lol

Back in the early 90's I lost my bike at Goddards, it was trashed, needed a wheelbarrow and shovel to pick the bits up and I broke a leg and shoulder. someone else had had an excursion there and then dragged mud onto the track, which being a wet day I missed seeing, so highsided, I can laugh about it now as it led to my favourite track bike when I started riding again.

Horrible off-camber corner, although The Old Hairpin is worse - being at the bottom of Craners sucks you in.

Early nineties? - the surface was like a donkey track on Blackpool beach.
