IMD Central Wheatbelt WA
« on: September 27, 2010, 12:48:43 AM »
Huge gathering of one Moke for the second Central Wheatbelt IMD - but it's my own fault as I only have one going at the moment! :-[ :-[

Crops on the Dog Ranch are stuffed, so rather than a farm tour we thought we would climb to the top of the hill for something different this year.

Ron takes a breather at the top.....


Dog Ranch is all the green and brown stuff in the background - the kennel is there somewhere if you know where to look.


Discovered mokes fit between the car park barriers - so did a bit of rock climbing.


Then did a tour of the important parts of town - like the wheat bin.......


......and the silo factory.


And our proof we were there on the right day!!



Cheers, MD.

Well at least you got out of the backyard Noddy  ;D. By the way, the rules of IMD are that you need photos on the day - did you get one?


Nice little tour Maddog, but looks rather depressingly brown over there  :(. Just a disclaimer, the background scenery in the Round Up pics may make you cry a little bit  :'(

In that case I did not partake in IMD

Seems to be everywhere so dry. Uncles crops are also not that great, and the game reserves are more brown( Big fire hazard).

We were pretty dry for most of early winter here, however we have had some pretty good falls lately and the north of teh State is looking the best I have seen it in 30 years.  I think the south has been fairly dry, though I think they have been getting a bit of rain lately.

Hope you can get what you need Noody and I hope Maddog gets set up for a good year next year, looks like this might be stuffed already, if you are still struggling now.

Cheers

Mad Dog - you ARE a Mad Dog!

Your moking spirit is higher than most - and your photos, though depressingly dry, are of a wonderful part of our country! Thank you for sharing them with us!

Noddy - i give you 5/10 for at least driving around the yard in your moke! So now you've got the idea of IMD - you can plan and make next years bigger and better! (just remember the pics!!!) And we'll do a rain dance for you at Tamworth! LOL

Thanks everyone for your comments. We had a great family day and were happy to be able to share it.

I actually thought it looked quite green in the photos! Much browner now and still six months of summer to go....

But I have plenty of projects to work on, mokes are all paid off and the weather is beautiful. And it's a poor farmer who doesn't plan for a bad season. ;) Still gives me the shits though.


Cheers, MD.
