My uncle used to have a farm at Hanging Rock. Wood stove, 32v DC generator, kero fridge, a big hole out the back. :2fun:

We used to visit in Summer. ;)

That was years ago Glen. But I have spent time in the area. They moved later to Wallabadah and then into Quirindi. My aunt and cousins are now in Tamworth but it's been some years since I've visited them.

I didn't find any sapphires or gold but did get lots of garnets. ;) The Hanging Rock area so so poor country - lacking trace elements and even poor after they had been added. Wallabadah was so much easier.

We are just outside Guyra you can grow anything, but you dont need to go far to get into poor country.
