Sunday Session - Local Tracks West

18 DEC 2016 | BY STEVE DOMINGUEZ

So three of us set off at 9 to drive the easy tracks around the west side of town. All went well with some great scenery to be seen, lots of wildlife about.

On our homeward journey a quick bypass to see ‘one more track’ turned into a swoop session from a local emergency responding helicopter looking for the origin of an EPIRB signal. They thought it was us for a second. Turns out it wasn’t. After speaking with the pilot and offering our assistance to locate a missing person we were advised that the signal was strongest from ‘the area full of houses’ and likely our assistance will not be required.

All done and dusted, our duty served, we made our way home for some lunch and a cool drink. Phew! So much for a simple trip out bush
