We knew that years...

New road sign, the old one had the red bar "No Through Road" on it.





Stopped to chat with one of the residents who still insisted that the top-end is a private road.
Hmmm....

Private or not, it's a little gem in any case.









Some more of the residents (who couldn't give a methane cloud I bet)






Somewhere above Gladysdale










Amazing what one finds in the bush....







Grey skies and a sharp, cold wind.... time to go home....

I have noticed a couple of those recently. Charters Road near Wandin East appears to have lost its No Through Road status as well.

Someone also cleaned up Aitken Rd. a good bit.
The base was still twin-track but the bushes up top had nearly fused, brushing the dead bugs off the jackets/ helmets

Still no signs, and the bottom corner is still pretty soft and rough with mud + dead branches/ foliage debris, but I even got the Mitsi through a few weeks ago.
Five Oaks Wines were closed and looked somewhat "abandoned", usually it's a trim and neat place all year around....who knows.


Went down Tschampions from the CFA and was looking for Kennedys Rd., but turned up Cherry Rd. instead. Couldn't remember ever having been there (most likely age setting in), some sweet views to be had from the southern end where it comes off Macclesfield Rd.

Amphlett Ave was totally chopped by the spud -tractors, had the Husky crabbing up the steep bit to the Mountain Rd. ridge with big chunks of red dirt flying everywhere.
Once the tyres were clogged there was no backing out... or even getting off the bloody thing

Nice little lap with a bit of everything
