[NSW] - Late Late Late notice, Blue Mountains 3/1/07

  1. Hey folks,
    I'm still on work holidays . . . .

    Tomorrow, Rosie and I are planning a ride up to Katoomba via Bells Line.

    So if there are other bludgers out there who want to go for a ride, come along.

    We are looking at leaving Old Windsor Rd Caltex (Glenwood) at around lunch time or earlier . . not sure yet, Rosie has to decipher my mud-map and negotiate the Harbour Bidge, M2 and M7. :LOL:



    So if your keen, come along, its just going to be a day thing for me.

    Hopefully the rain stays away.

    Its going to be a touristy ride ;), so its going to be pretty easy - ideal for some L-platers who want some experience.

  4. I'd be interested but time might be tight. I have to get out to Anaconda at Lidcombe when they open, get back home and then come all the way out again to make it. I bought an all singing all dancing GPS yesterday and the bloody thing won't work! Will try to make it but don't stress if I'm not there. I'll be on the CBR so can catch you up if you are touristing it.

  5. (Puts on Mike Bailey voice - minus the Dad jokes)
    Aviation weather for Sydney has light showers of rain most of the day. For Bathurst, has showers clearing at about 10am. So might get a spot or two but should be clearing up during the day.

  7. Despite the shithouse weather, we had a good ride today. There wasn't much point in stopping by Katoomba/Leura as the weather was too shit - the roads would have been awful and we wouldn't have seen much. Didn't want to have anyone lowside on some muddy runoff.

    Here is the phot I took at Hartley with Rosie's magnificent touring beast taking prominence:

  8. I can see that pic being a nice poster on Rosie's wall when she gets home (although you might like to photoshop out the bit of bark on the road in the foreground!).

  10. Sorry for not being able to make it. One of the disadvantages of being new to NSW roads! At least one thing made me laugh..
    "Hey Micky sorry I got lost and won't be able to make it. Somehow ended up on the Pacific Hwy."
    "What the...!"

    o_O

  11. hey Trev !
    no worries mate, make sure you come for a ride next time.





    Now Chrissie will have a go at me now for losing someone again !! hahahaha
    :LOL:

    Technically I didn't lose loth . . . .
    I did lose Rosie though because she followed the map I drew ! :eek:
    (but then again, it could be a chic thing ! LOL)

    . . . .. runs and hides
