Hattah Burger Run
Welcome to the inaugural "Hattah Burger Run" through the Murray - Sunset National Park, Victoria.
Bazzz (XTE600), Rick (Dakar 650) & Masterbrewer (TDMKym) + Tony (Suby cold beer carrier) met at Paruna Sth Aus around 11am to head over to Hattah Vic intending to watch the Hattah Desert Race.
We had been advised the previous day that Paruna didn't have any petrol, so we were fully loaded with an extra 10 litres of fuel each. The ride intending to become a pre trial for the Ulysses Adventure Riders trip to Winton Qld in September.
As the general store was also shut, we snacked on a muesli bar or two and headed on our ride.
However ???????????....hunger got the better of us during the days ride and we were promised, by a so called local, a delicious burger was waiting for us at Hattah.
The start of Pheeney's Track
Having a rest break
The loaded XTE 600 in flight
Although the intersections were straight cross roads on the map, they were in fact off set with no indication whether they were to the left or right
This section was fun to ride
Just checking that our beer was safe
The track on the Hattah side
Round the world at Hattah, but no burgers.
As we didn't depart Paruna until 11.30, then to Hattah after 4pm via Pheeney's Track, we decided to head back into the park, collect enough firewood for a big bon fire and camp at Rocket Lake.
We could only guess that this was the rebuilding of the Trojan Horse
Absolutely fantastic night at Rocket Lake campsite.....not too cold...very little frost and plenty of cold beer, red wine & port.
Luckily Tony had failed to break the Champagne Home Brew bottles in the esky over some of the interesting terrain at times, although he reported that the esky had bounced higher than the back seat in the Suby on the odd occasion
The next day after breakfast we headed out on the track around Rocket Lake
What did you call this?
The only track north out of Rocket Lake................steep & sandy!!!!
Bazzz was having a ball
Race ya up the hill?
Looked too easy
Com'on guys that's not fair!
View over Rocket Lake
Back on the track
The ride to the top
Still a bit of water around
The road into Loxton
After no burgers at Hattah, our hunger was finally sated
The sign on the wall was quite fitting for some of us.
To finish, here is the view from our faithfull cold beer carrier (there is no sound)
Looking forward to creating perhaps an annual event: "The Hattah Burger Run".
