My Journey 8 (RIGO 1962)

Image 1..Pre arranged "Rental Accomodation" at Rigo in 1962.Four expats hired the house for the weekend and stayed in the village with locals.Bushwalking,home made Ginger Beer with the Catholic priest,a visit to Kapa Kapa wharf and a hectic lakatoi ride down a swollen Saroa River.A weekend to remember.

Image 2..The Rigo Road in 1962 was an unsealed,mainly one lane,road with many water crossings but only two wooden one lane bridges.When heavy rain fell,vehicles had to be winched across the running streams.Towards the Rigo end,the road deteriorated into simple tyre tracks with kunai grass on both sides of the road,higher than the car.
