It should be worth the effort Jwerta, those boys know how to party.

I wanted to come to this one but we're half way through an unwanted and unneeded bathroom renovation. There's been close to 20 different tradies (from everywhere but Australia) and their lackies all through the house and front & backyards. I'm not keen to leave them unsupervised.

We now have a pota-loo in the backyard which my 9 year old son has dubbed "The Turdis" because it looks a bit like Dr who's Tardis.

Have a good one boys I wish I could be there.

Hey guys.

My missus couldn't get the time off so I went up early this morning.

There are lots of Amanitas, some Slippery Jacks, Gallerinas and NO subs. I hunted for 2 hours and found none whatsoever. I checked the entire area from the camp site to the road then all the way up to the boundary. The road that heads further in, the one that people got bogged on, has been logged so that entire area is gone now.

The problem seemed to be that the entire area was under 10cm of water and was very flooded. There were also a lot of cops out there on motorbikes even in the driving rain. Luckily they were on road bikes and didn't come into the dirt roads but stopped at the entrance and had a good look.

On the way home I stopped along the Old Butter Factory road as the conditions looked better and there were hundreds of Amanitas visible from the road side. It was the same story there mushrooms wise except there was a lot more Gallerinas. That area was a lot drier also.

You guys might want to bring your own supplies this time. Hopefully I just missed them as I wasn't looking for them in particular.

Have fun out there and take some bogan rubbish home with you :)

Err no thanks :)

It looks like a tip out there now in the spot under the trees. I also found broken glass bottles in the actual forest floor.

Hopefully there will be less motorbikes out there now with the logging work they have done.

Not sure about Oberon area, but they're predicting serious rain in some places - first peeps up there could maybe throw up a couple big tarps for group huddlin' purposes. Have fun everyone, let us know who wins the breakdancing competition - nitrous, fires, headstands, it's a recipe for awesomeness, you know that it is.

It will be fairly warm out there with the lowest temperature predicted being 7 degrees. That's warm for that area as I remember it getting down to 0 previously.

If anyone out there's still able to see this post, can you please take some photos of the amanitas out there? I've never seen them in the wild and have always been fascinated
