Flinders in August

We've got a few of us heading to the Flinders for Friday 16th August, staying at the Angorichina Village dormitory until Monday morning...$24 per head, per night. Have about six attending and would like to make it around 10. Some are riding up Thursday and staying at Quorn enroute, whilst others are riding the whole way Friday and some are driving with trailers.

All other arrangements, food or refreshments are your own problem.


First in, best dressed.
Plans are firming up.

Thursday 15th August....PBee, Concorde, myself and possibly another member of the QSC riding from metro Adelaide to Quorn. Chance that Phil S (mate of mine) and Kipo might also attend and Mayor of Flinders will hopefully conduct an official ceremony at the Austral Hotel. Accommodation at the Austral.

Friday 16th August.....Bernie will be riding or driving up to Ango with DR, whilst Paul L and Paul B will be riding up. Barneyrubble will be driving up and towing his Yammie.....has offered to carry supplies for attendees. It'sGotToBeYellow and his pillion (with tea towels) are contemplating riding up to Ango on Friday as is Kipo.

Saturday 17th - Sunday 18th. Various riding options. Some will head back Sunday afternoon.

Monday 19th....Pbee, self and anyone remaining will ride/drive back to metro.

Still some seats/beds available.

PS. Dave at Ango has run out of the tonnes of railway sleepers that PBee, Bikerbilly and Emu left there in April, so we might have to find our own firewood if we want a warming fire - to that end, I can send up a chainsaw with Barney Rubble and/or we can gather some sleepers from the same spot that PBee went to.

I've just finished telling Bernie about it, he'd decided to come with us Thursday as it sounded like some fun!!

Might talk about it at the 24......but I guess the Craddock Pub, or something like, that might be an option. We only need beds, meals and alcohol (what did they used to say?........ 'ancillary to the meal')

Are they heading north or south on the Friday? Hate to meet a bash car or cars coming through the gorges. I already upset a Vic tourist once in Bunyeroo when I came into a corner too hot and pulled up with my front wheel about 6" from his bull bar, he was not happy

Quorn Thurs day 6, Dawson day 7 & then Burra heading south according to the blurb.

Just another excuse to come up another time for the QSC.

Just got back from a lap of the 24 track.

Some good viewing spots early in the lap at stage 1 and stage 4 but a lot of walking required to see anything decent down on the flats.

Pray it doesn't rain for the first 4 stages, and pray for rain for the last 8.

Stage 7 will leave a lot of the boys crying for their mummies. Stage 11 is well worn.

A lot of good camping sites a long the side of the roads down on the flats. Less chance of rain down there.

Cheers
