-Alex Colley has a sure-fire method of ensuring fine weather for his walking trips. Going down on the Nowra train on the Friday night to commence his nine days in the Corang-Mt. Renwick-The Castle Area in May, he spied the "​Mirror"​ weather map and tore it out; "This will do us" cried Alex "just look at that huge belt of high pressure right over the entire continent with a forecast for fine weather - it can't rain for a week.
