Is that one of the ones that was lost? Bugger, haven't been to that one. I believe they are going to replace all the Ulimates, they give too much trouble because people don't know how to drive them.

Yeah, Brooks was an excellent rebuild. Quite a bit of the substructure is still intact. I visited it many times in 2018 and 2019 while searching out the track on Arsenic Ridge.

Yeah, they are looking to replace a lot of the fireplaces with glass doored wood heaters. It’s a shame because the Ultimates pumped out the heat and were very economical.

@zapruda That tree that was removed from in front of the hut- was that done in 1992 ?
I’m not 100% sure. I can’t find mention of it in my records. Judging by older photos it appears to have been done some time in the 90s. It certainly wasn’t there in 2002. Aesthetically, It’s always a shame when large spaces are cleared around the huts. Better than being burnt down I guess.

Interestingly it was only rediscovered in 1990 by Charles Warner. Must have been one of the last of the standing huts to be found.
