Another excursion into the New England over the Australia Day long weekend.  Revisit of some sites I worked last year, reccy to some sites I'd like to work and two new sites.  Lent up being a 806km trip.

Had Rain, Wind and some trying condtions.  Up the coast to Wauchope then inland up into the New England.  Plan was to be out amongst it for four days and activatve at least nine summits.  Well.. "The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men".  I wanted to check out access to the Ben Halls Gap N.P. and get back into Barrington Tops N.P. for the final night.

Here's a few emails I have received from activaters I've chased.
