Fortunately the water stopped rising with a couple of feet to spare. The road was closed north to Barren Junction and east to Wee Waa until Saturday morning but that was OK as I had all I needed and the bore was hot. Met Fred Kern from Brisbane and had some interesting discussion as we whiled away the time.
Provisioned at Woolies Narrabri and was intending to stop at Sawn Rocks rest area but it was closed for construction? Drove on to Bingara and set up on the Gwydir river for 2 nights. Walked 5km in the morning then SUPed on the river in the afternoon. Interesting thing was there was no current, the river was lower and there were gravel runs up and down stream.
