Friday morning was the official start of the festival. Nathan and Naz both signed up as volunteers to get a free ticket. I had already bought a ticket but I decided to volunteer as well just to get not bored. But I was mainly fooling around.















Great weekend, I have seen lots of inspiring movies and spoken to so many interesting people.

Wow! I am enjoying reading your report so much that I can hardly imagine what it must be like to be experiencing it firsthand!

Thank you so much for taking the time to keep us informed.

Keep enjoying the ride!

In the evening just before dusk we arrived at the concerted campgroung Tom Groggins to meet Naz and Alaine(from the festival as well).

Tom Groggin

Dominick , you continue to amaze me, that someone from the other side of the world has been so successful at finding so many of our great motorcycle roads.
I hope you arrived at Tom Groggin from the south via the Tom Groggin Track from Benambra and forded our great Murray river to enter the camping area as it is a great ride.

That was the original plan but then we realized we could get no beer and food that way so we used the many road to get to Corryong and back down the Alpine Highway

The next morning we all rode together until Jindabyne where we had a lunch break at the lake.*





Nathan and I went down the Barry Way to get back to the coast.*



On this road there are some "places" with real strange names like Suggan Buggan or Seldom Seen.*



We went to a camp at McKillops Bridge for a overnight stay. The place was a little bit scary because it was completely covered in smoke from a fire close by.*







As soon as it started getting dark possums surrounded us. We had some drinks siting at a bench when one of the possums got really close to us without us noticing. It squeaked loud right next to us and we were both so frightened that we screamed like little girls :)

Wednesday morning we went back the way we came in and followed from Buchan more and more boring roads to Lakes Entrance for a lunch brake.*











Nathans Plan was to stay in a hostel in Maffra to find work. Because the weather forecast was showing a thunderstorm for the evening I decided to stay at the hostel for one night as well.
The next day I went down to Phillips Island to watch the Superbikes. Matt had offered me a free ticked on ADV (great isn't it?) and I had never been to a motorcycle race before - perfect chance.

On Friday I met Billy again a bloke I had met in Bright the weekend before. He is travelling with a surfboard attached to his bike so he is attracting attention pretty quick :)
The weekend was awesome! It started a little bit chilly at first but the weather improved massively on Sunday for the final race day.

Talking

how much is all his costing you and where are you getting the finances?

Like on average how much would you say the cost is per day.

I ask because I myself am coming to oz and most likely will purchase a bike down there in perth somewhere.

Thanks sir.

have fun while you can! although it looks as if you've already succeeded where some of us are still stuck at work!

Thanks again! As Red Green says: "keep your stick on the ice!"

I am blowing out what I have saved up in the last years.
And I have no idea what I spend in average. My biggest expanse is keeping the bike going : fuel and tires. If I am on the road I don't spend much for food and booze but it gets more if I go to bigger cities. When I planed this trip I calculated with max 50 per day but I am spending a lot less in average.
