    There was a big wash out from winter on one of the river crossings, no passing from that point.

    I haven't been in there for years so can't help sorry.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    She's a steep pull from the road end,once over the top pretty good to Skips(shocking pink last time I was there,)another good pull over to Rogers' then from memory pretty good to the saddle
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Was up there last week, road is all fixed up and the campground is primo... The hut is gone, thank God! Shouldn't take you to long to see a bit of sign.... The creek is overgrown due to the horses being rounded up last year but still an awesome place for a couple of days! What dates are you going? I'm hoping to be there next week for a night or two..
