What!? You have been spying on Dear Leader, 'Brutus'?
And just when were we down in Forrest? Good God, that must have been many, many moons ago now...
Be it noted that the cheerful town of Forrest now has a fully-fledged Brewery which I know from contacts draws a ripping crowd on Fridays and Saturdays.
EDIT: Speaking with Bernie Jordan of Geelong Bushwalking Club (Senior Leader) earlier in the week; he'd taken a group down to Allambee Beek Falls (a few APUG members have been down there e.g. Wyno, SMBooth, moi, SteveR...), but via the mysterious Staircase Falls, track which branches off the main through track shortly after entering the forest, and heads east, down to the falls then crosses the river and picks up the last 200m to AB Falls. The noble man re-set flagging tapes from Staircase to Allambee Beek and exited via the well-trod (amend that: "bloody awful") Curtis Track, describing it most tactfully as an "abysmal quagmire" — a 50 metre stretch of sticky clay mud that precipitated an anxious chorus of "are we nearly there yet!?". I have never been to Staircase Falls but probably have an early Surveyor's pic of it from the 1980s somewhere.
