My passenger has had to pull out so I have a spare seat from/to the Hydro if anyone is interested! FYI, I'll need to leave Taralga by 3 for home.

Hi All

Hoping to be there. The Z is Cleaned, Fuelled and ready to go.
The only risk is that the wife is a touch unwell so things are a little uncertain.

Cheers

PB

Hi

As much as it pains me, unfortunately I have to give this one a miss, need to look after family.
It is shaping up to be the best Z run in recent times. Can someone please take some photos.

Have a great day and see you at the next one.

Cheers

PB

Family are having Christmas in July tomorrow at the sister in laws place near Collector so I'm hoping to see some of the Canberra boys traveling up or back! Have a great day everyone and travel safe.

Important update re today's run, sorry for the late notice, I have just had confirmed by Goulburn Police that the Abercrombie rd river crossing is closed, therefore we are diverting to the Tarana Hotel at Tarana. The meeting place and time is the same, 10.00am at the Hydro Majestic Medlow Bath, we will travel to Tarana via Oberon so still using some of the roads on the original run. Sorry for the inconvenience, Mother Nature wins again. Regards Craig

Hehe Cmon guys, whats the problem with crossing a creek in a zed ? What could go wrong !
Craig , Tarana would have meant a massive drive for us where as Taralga was a nice distance.
Ended up on the Tharwa rd and had a leisurely drive to the Tracking station for a coffee and cake.image.jpeg image.jpeg

Hi Peter,
It was a great drive, albeit a bit (alot!) chilly!!

There were plenty of people taking snaps so I'm sure they will post them soon.

Cheers Tony

Hi Peter,

Didn't want to disappoint you too much but you missed out on a great day. Mother Nature intervened but, thanks to a bit of forethought, I was able to get us into the Tarana pub, well actually outside, the publican forgot to tell us they already had a booking for 50 and there was no room in the inn! 20 of us huddled together outside in 4 degree temperatures, to their credit, with the numbers they had, it was only about 20 - 25 minutes after placing our orders the food started flowing and good pub food it was too. We left Medlow Bath at about 10.45, due to a few wanderers, and headed off towards Jenolan Caves rd through typical Sunday mountains traffic, once heading down Jenolan Caves rd the traffic thinned out a lot and we enjoyed a steady pace down to the turnoff on Duckmaloi rd where a quick pit stop and bunch-up took place before a spirited drive to chilly Oberon, after a short transit through town, we turned onto Lowes Mount rd which meandered through some very scenic country side with evidence of lots of fallen trees being very recently cleared from the road, this brought us to Mutton Falls rd for the last stretch before arriving at the pub at about 12.30ish. Really disappointed I couldn't get the Taralga drive to happen but I will endeavour to plan it again before the year is out, however the day did turn out really well. I am happy to try and put together another Tarana run but for a Saturday as the barmaid told me they only served 10 meals the day before we arrived, make a note anyone venturing out that way. Also nice to meet Alan, aka Zeds4ever another Mountains forum member who partnered up with Tony for the day, thanks for that Tony and thanks for your report. Hopefully some photos to follow.

Regards Craig

P.S. Refer to Alan's post
