    No, I didn't get any nuggets at Paynes Find (Fields Find), but I did score a couple at Sandstone and Wiluna.

    Monday night through to Wednesday night it absolutely bucketed down. I had a real ball driving along the Paynes Find to Sandstone to Wiluna track (road). It finally dried out on the Thursday afternoon.

    It was great to catch up with and meet those PPers over the weekend. Will have to do it again next time the WA clan heads bush.

    In total I clocked up a little over 2,000km with about 1200 of that on the dirt.
