Anyone want to do a late Sunday run on the Digbee.  Meet Weston at 1530 if the water comes.

Is the Digbee worth a drive from Sydney?

IMH yes.  It will be touch and go.  Will likely be able to make a call Sun morning on if it is going to be runable.

Simon, yep.  You should be able to do a double lap pretty easy.  It's not the longest run but it's one of the best in NSW without a doubt.

Mick

Thanks for the offer.  We might take you up on your offer if the rains come.  I can only make a late afternoon run due to other committements.  It might be that I fall in on a second lap if others want to do an ealier run.

Send down the rain Grin

Here is a link to the guage  at the start of the grade 3 run http://waterinfo.nsw.gov.au/water.shtml?ppbm=410039&rs&1&rslf_org.  It is more relevant than the wee jasper guage.  Min level is also about 1.2 on this guage.  Curently sitting on 1 m at 7:51 PM.  I will check it in the morning.  Unfortunately I do not thinK that there will have been enough rain Cry

Lads

The Digbee guage at Brindabella is at 1.18 and is still rising.  Looks like we will get some more rain today (Only about 5 mm).  I am keen to paddle, albeit that it is going to be on min level.  Dave B and Stu are keen to do the top (Grade 3 section) only.  Might I suggest a group RV at Weston McDonalds at 1 PM and they do the top section.  I will RV at Weston McDonalds at 3.30Pm and we can go to the put in of the grade 4 section.

Give me a ring if you are going to paddle. 0499047662. I am going to have phone only access today.

For those driving on Gentle Annie Track please be very careful.  There is a big hole about halfway down that has seen a number of 4wds roll in the last month.

Mick if you are able to your support to drive shuttle would be appreciated. Grin

We're heading over to the Goob a bit earlier, probably leave Canberra around 9:30 on the highway.  Aiming to get a couple of runs on the gorge then home via brindabella with a quick paddle on the top section of the digbee. 

Hope the hole on Gentle Annnie is not too big.  My car only just makes it..

Stu - you're welcome to join us.  Give me a call if you're keen.
