Sunday at the Mine walk-in

Post by NicoVenster » Mon Jun 09, 2014 3:11 pm

On Sunday myself and two friends, as usual parked at the bottom of the walk-in for the mine and started missioning up (10ish). About halfway up we spotted two guys coming down the path and they on seeing us immediately hid in the bushes, each on either side of the path. We decided to rather turn around and met a lady walking two dogs and told her to be careful. When we got down to the car we saw her as well (she took the straight down route) and she said that they did the same upon seeing her approach.

Whether they had plans to be there or a misjudgement from our side I'd rather just share the info that I have. Make of it what you will I suppose.

Thanks for the heads up guys. We were up there on Saturday and didnt see anything suspicious. Will take extra precaution next time.

You do get some strange folks up there, but I think most are collecting wood etc.

Sad to see all that hakea making such a recovery up there.
Sandbagging is a dirty game
