We'll be staying near Forbes until Tuesday then visiting the Dish on our way to stop at Narrabri before heading off to Westmar.

Ok for those following this thread the best way to Westmar from Moree is through Goondiwindi. The more direct route has long patches of unpaved roads.

Thanks for the heads up. We were planning on going through Goondiwindi so good to know that's the right way to go. RV almost loaded up, looking forward to heading up real soon.

So what is everyone else doing in Narrabri this evening, Tuesday, other then listening to the thunda, watching the lightening, trying not to get wet and cramming L2 Study Guides?
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it
