Some points about this trip.
  • It will take place.
  • Excepting, of course, if a fire ban be in place to prevent this event occurring.
  • Permits can be purchased over the phone with a credit card by calling the Narrogin DPAW
  • Maps of collection areas will be issued by Narrogin DPAW after buying a permit.  I'll clarify if maps will be issued via email or if it is necessary to drive all the way into Narrogin DPAW to be handed a map.
  • Depending on the above point... if it is necessary to go to Narrogin then meeting time is 9:00am at the Narrogin DPAW office.  If it is not necessary ….meeting time will be 9:00am at the "Tanglefoot Winery & Café" on the northern edge of Wandering Town
  • Narrogin is about 4.5hrs round trip from Perth CBD.  You will understand this and be happy to spend that time in the saddle to attend this trip.

Please DON"T contact Narrogin DPAW until after I post a follow up trip message.  I expect to do so Tuesday.

Also, you will be asked NOT to participate if you arrive without study footwear, trousers and gloves.  It is snake season after all.

Camping Saturday night in a DPAW run camp ground is possible and I recommend a visit to the Barnia Mia Nocturnal Wildlife Experience.  However, these two aspects would be extra - curricular; the are not in the scope of this Firewood collection trip.

Please look out for my next message due Tuesday.
