Trip Leader: John Mc (Macca)
Tail-end Charlie – John S (Stamp)
When: Sunday 5th June 2005
Location: Sawyers Valley
Participants: 5 vehicles.
Much to the relief of Macca (John “M”), 5 vehicles showed up for the day trip through Sawyers Valley. He originally had 7 interested parties, however due to various reason a few members pulled out at the last minute. Macca was running solo for the day, as was John “S” took on tail-end-charlie of the convoy which included Martin and Karen, Gary and Wilma, and visitors Craig and Kirsty.
We soon returned to the powerlines track and began the fist of many climbs and descents in the valley. The track had been well utilised with many wash-aways making it an exercise not to be taken lightly. The ground was wet in most parts and several locations presented challenging water crossings to navigate. Most were side-tracked by dry land giving us the ‘wimp’ option if we chose.
