No probs Dave,

Will also add, bring your boat. Close on 20 inches of rain this year so far with over 3 inches in the last 3 days.

Mozzies and March flies are out in force due to the rain. Had a March fly the size of a small aircraft bite me on the leg last week and if you run your hand up my leg it feel like reading a novel in Braille. I went and saw Doctor Google and he said I have "Hives" which is apparently a common result of March fly bites.

Snakes are out in big numbers too, due to all the frogs due to all the rain

Steve mate I hope those damn March Flies and Mozzies are long gone before we get over there, I have been keeping an eye on Weather Zone and seeing the total rainfalls adding up for the areas around the WA goldfields

 

The 2300SDC may come in handy this year for its under water capabilities :biggrin:

 

cheers dave

Went for a spin in a chopper last week and it's looking green and we have water in the lakes that will see us through to Dec/Jan

Hi Enio,

very hard to spot cattle at a water point now, no need as there is so much ground water about and the things would rather drink out of a creek or puddle.

As for the gold, yep have a couple of good spots I just can't get to at the moment and a couple I am walking a klm+ in to so I don't leave tracks to follow.

Just hoping I can get to them before the season starts and the masses get here.

For those heading West (Western Australia) , Leonora has just had another 84mm of rain since yesterday and it's still coming, add that to the approx. 90mm for the last few days and you start to get the picture of "Bring your Boat " Usual camping spots at Malcolm Dam are several feet or more under water.  Water is way past the camping/tree line around the dam,  Unreal.
Dare say your country got another heap of rain last night Madtuna ?
Cheers
Ashley

Spot on Ash, yep 125mm (5 inches) in the last few days. I think we average about 200mm a year and we are now over 600 since mid January.

Bugger the boat, Monday I'm going to town via helicopter:smile:
