Orange - Manildra - Parkes
It's been a while since I was out this way.
Orange is still a great little town.
Parkes is quite arty too, with quirky paintings and whatnot.
Cudal was the destination tonight.

Forbes River Road - Sofala
Its time for my yearly Easter sojourn over the range.
I do my best to find new and more difficult ways to Sofala.
This time I headed down Forbes River Road from Banda Trail.
Gingers Creek for fuel, then straight down Knodingbull Road to Mt George.
Tiri - Bundook and on to Gloucester.
The sun was leaving me as I passed the Barrington Tops dingo gate.
As always I made Sofala pretty late after a slab run through Bylong.
All the way keeping my eyes peeled for wildlife.
200 metres out of Sofala camp I hit a bit roo at speed.
I gripped the bike with all my strength and wobbled to a stop.
By the time I turned around the roo had passed on to the great beyond.
I'd hit it full force with my knee armour and boot at over 80kmh.
