Have fun Canary. I mostly travel on my own as I find others don't want to do what I want to do. I find it does wonders for my confidence and self esteem. Just think, you can have as many coffee/chocolate stops as you want!

And look at the shops.

Hubby always races me past them although I just want to have a browse. We sometimes stop in towns for lunch, then off before I can check out any local shops.

Hi Gals,
Have you decided on a final plan yet? Looking forward to catching up with the Chix. Is anyone heading off on Friday. I have Friday and Monday off if anyone is up for making a longer weekend of it.

Ok girls, here's the plan .... At long last.

Big River Rd it is, we can camp at the Chaffe Creek site by the river and go for a swim. Might be nice with all this hot weather. Big River Rd heads south off the Alexandra Jamieson Rd, it is easy dirt, no technical bits to speak of. The campsite is about 5km from the northern end of Big River Rd.

If you want a bit of adventure, meet me 10am in Yea - Marmalades of course, and I try a dirt route through to Marysville. I won't have pre-ridden it, so can't tell you what it will be like.. From Marysville we can ride the Big River Rd from the south - and slide round lots of gravel corners . Well ..... others may be able to do the sliding thing.

Here's a link with information and the campsite on it: http://http://www.dse.vic.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0015/101742/Lower_Big_River_Recreation_and_Camping_Guide.pdf

Sorry I took so long to decide, was worried about fires.

Hope you all like the sound of it.

It sounds fantastic
Always ready for a bit of adventure... (especially when in starts at Marmalades )
Is that a 10am departure?... meaning that time for coffee and cake will need to be put in before 10-ish!


Have already been training lots for the Chix-weekend since my arrival in Oz... (actually... I have hardly had a day without riding )
Waiting while the tourleader checking the map and negotiating the GPS (great ride, Jane )


Laughs at camp...


At the moment visiting and exploring great roads in SA...


Looking forward to seeing you all

G'day Miss Jane & chix,
Will there be large amounts of blacktop or more dirt road riding from Yea to Marysville? Am thinking of knocking off work early on Friday, head up in the arvo, check in some accomodation somewhere, then meet you all on the Saturday morning, then pick up the car & trailer on our way back through on Sunday. Which town do you reckon would be a good one for me to join your convoy on your way through?
Am excited......
Cheers
Marls

I will be aiming to do as much dirt as I can from Yea. But let me have a really good look at the maps and I will give you a better idea of distances and possible meeting spots.

Getting exited now, looking forward to catching up with you all.

Hi to all!
So the plan is made!
Weather for weekend sounding coolish and some showers- for Melb anyway, haven't checked the trip area......
Time to pack!- thought I better check what was in my tool tube as so long since last big trip had forgotten what was in there.....opened up and couldn't get the cloth tool bag out.....lots of tugging (accompanied by ripping noises!!!) revealed a bunch of rusted tools and bag.....oh, dear.....oh well, now to clean them all up...
See you all at Yea!
Jude
