    Mini Mudgee meetup

    Does anyone want to plan an impromptu visit to Mudgee?
    Well it looks like AP members Ameerat42, kevin301 and Gazza are going to join me in Mudgee on Thursday and Friday next week (23 and 24 July).
    Maybe that's a reason not to be in Mudgee next week.
    ATM we plan on trying to visit a local attraction out of town called The Drip. Final plans are fluid (some good fluids to be found around Mudgee )
    Can you come a day earlier Paul Heath? Reckon we could delay the trip to The Drip to mid Friday if you can.
    (Henry Lawson didn't go there when he lived here, otherwise The Trip to The Drip would be a famous poem).
    G'day farmmax. Can we come and practice animal photography at your place?

    60D, Canon 28-105, Sigma 150-600S, Sigma 120-400, a speedlite, a tripod, a monopod, a remote release and a padded bag to carry things in.

    There may be (probably) another AP member joining us, so a couple more takes it beyond a mini-meet.

    So you all can drop in to our place what ever time you wish on Thursday arvo for a bite to eat. We can organise times for Fridays visit to The Drip then. Would suggest heading out there at 10:00 though. Seems like the weather will be okay on Friday.

    It's raining tonight in Orange!
    Will be on my way in the morning after check-out. Shall allow myself about 4-5 hours to get to Mudgee at snail's pace

    Mark, tentatively will drop by at your place at about 4pm. Hope that's all right.
    Let me know if otherwise

    Am contactable by mobile in any case.

    Cheers!
    Kevin

    Kevin, 4pm or earlier or later is fine. Mentioned 3PM to AM today.
    What time you getting into Mudgee Gazza?

    Can't say I'm looking forward to it, but will be happy to also meet everyone. Jeez, my better half has been away since Sunday and I've got so much cleaning up to do yet.

    Don't worry about the weather for Friday. I've organised for the next band of rain to not arrive 'til the late arvo, probably evening though.

    And Gazza, to save me harassing you about it tomorrow, you better tell farmmax they win the Photo Painting Challenge.

    That was a really fun meet-up!
    Thanks for organising everything and for taking the trouble to show us tourists around

    I made it to Katoomba without incident.
    Looking forward to the photo of the back of me head

    Glad you both made it safely Kevin. If you want to see a wonderful view of something a bit less touristy and you have a GPS try this,
    33⁰44’25.07S
    150⁰22’20.14E
    Or google Little Switzerland Drive. When you get to it, turn left and stop at the first car park on right. Sorry I didn't mention this today.

    And for any one else that happens to be interested (I know, a limited audience ), this is what I had written before Kevin rudely posted first.

    So Gazza, Kevin301 (and his very quiet, polite partner who Nosey seemed to love), ameerat and I enjoyed a couple of hours getting to know each other at my place yesterday arvo.
    Apparently they all enjoyed an Indian meal last night. Not that I’d know. You can only push being sociable so far.
    Then another member, enseth, joined us today for a walk and lunch. Glad he did. He was a good counterbalance to a bunch of .... mmmmm .....mmmmm ...(don't say it Mark).
    Anyway, don’t hesitate if you get a chance to meet any of these AP members. Decent people all (though you may want to put a time limit on AM ). And of cause I suspect these members would suggest not bothering visiting that, in real life, boring Mark L.
    Thank you for the company and it shows the value of trying to meet up.
    I’ll post some photos of them in the next few days.
