Can't imagine what it's like after the last 200 to 250 mm of rain last week.

Could you do your trip from Wog Wog if it stays *&%$#!?

Been there on 10th June. It surprised me that after all that gushing down of water in the previous week, the road condition was OK - not too muddy & no landslides. I was in a Outback and there was no problem to reach Long Gully campground.
There was a problematic section next to Yadboro Flat but it's been filled with gravel.
The only problem was Yadboro River which was too deep and fast to pass for the majority of my team.
