    Self employment sometimes has benefits, should be right, School holidays end on the Sunday the 5th Oct .. So after that may be the choice

    Route looks good mate O/N Warrnambool .. Lunch at Robe and on to the Hills is a fair 2nd day at @ 700k's .. I would probably need a hangover/ride recovery day .. or 2 in the hills before the 750 odd k's of highway slab run home.

    looking at your trip once you hit SA. It seems remiss to ride all this way without taking the wellington ferry over the murray which heads you in the direction of Strathalbyn. A twisty ride over Mt lofty, Sommertown, Uraidla to Basket Range and on to Lobethal is the way to go. This Is the good ****. Maybe you went off the Adelaide Hills part of the SA trip?
    WINNING!

    Count me in from Murray Bridge (or similar).
    After school hollies and before the 25th; I fly out to Kuala Lumpur on the 26th.
    If I can be there I will!


    A detour via Birdwood and Gumeracha might be worthwhile.

    Your health is far more important than a T shirt, and almost a ride, so get yourself well.
