After 5 days on the Gold Coast doing the shopping centre and theme park thing a ride with Moose and Kram was just what I needed. And what better ride than to Nundle, to catch up with some old mates from Old Bulls and a drink or two around the fire pit.

A gentleman's start saw us head off from Moose’s place at 9am, headed to Waitui and then across to Gloucester. Normally we would head over Barrington Tops to Moonan Flat but I had spied another route on a map than needed some investigation. It involved Curricabark and Carters Roads through to Tomalla Station and down to Elliston. Not really knowing how long the route was we tackled it anyhow, it was about 2pm when we headed in there and as the shadows got longer and the higher we went the views got better and the air temperature started to drop considerably.

As I said the views were great!

WE eventually got to Elliston Station after 4pm with Barry Station Way still to tackle, it became evident we were going to be arriving at Nundle after dark. As it started to get dark the wildlife came out to make the ride more exciting for us with Roos, pigs and wombats all having a go at putting the wind up us. That combined with crossing the creeks in semi darkness made for an interesting trip indeed.

By the time we reached Nundle it was dark and bloody freezing! Thanks to Toes for greeting me on arrival with a beer and a room with the air cons set on 30 degrees.

The usual shenanigans went on at the pub until we were turfed out and headed for the ring of knowledge at the caravan park. A great night was had by all, some had a greater night than others and it showed the following morning, especially Toes who looked like death on a stick. Toes was desperately running around looking for trailer space for his Tenere as he really wasn’t up for the return trip with Moose Kram and I. To no avail Toes couldn’t convince anyone to let him in the car with them so he had to harden up and ride with us.
After what appeared to be a spew in the carpark of the pub….

He seemed to get some colour back, green is a colour.

We headed off with toes following up at the rear, and at each corner it was evident that he was struggling as we had to wait for him, sometimes it was a 2 durrie wait. That is not like Toes at all.

A awesome run through Cooplicurripa Station and then on to Cells road before hitting Kirriki road through to Knodingbull saw us in Elands in no time, this is when it got the better of Toes and he slabbed it from there on his own. Moose Kram and myself all decided that a run through Bago down to Wauchope was in order, a few main trails and a couple of singles for old time sake filled in the rest of the afternoon nicely before a team decision decided that it would be rude not to head to Bago Tavern for a debrief before we headed home.

All in all a great weekend riding great roads and trails, then catching up with all the old crew!

In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away

I was glad to be looking at the world through my eyes on Sunday, it would have been pretty blurry looking through Toe's eyes!
