so after a pretty ordinary sleep (noisey negbours deciding to have a party at 2am, drunken irish lads getting home without keys at 3am.... spose it was a friday night in a seaside holiday town 2 days before christmas.......)

the day was a lot cooler...looked like it may rain even...




i'd fueled up etc the night before so it was just up n off...
(after a not so impresive breakfast....)

i decided to head up thru where 'that lady took me last night' seemed like a good end of the world...




not a bad start to the day..



i looped around and onto the Great Ocean Road again... fanging past caravans whenever there was the slghtest break in the 'solid white line' down the middle of the road... but it wasnt long and a track caught the corner of my eye...before i even had a chance to think about it i was off the main road and shootin up a fairly steep rutted track.... i think it might have been called 'bird' track...something like that....

anyway it evened out for a bit...




before i hit this...



..i went for a walk up...



she was a bit rutted...



but
i figured...what the helll...



i picked my rough line...

reved her up...

took off..

got halfway up... and back wheel slipped into a rut....



..hmmm.... getting moving again from here might be 'interesting'...


but a little bit of sweat

a fair amound of rev's and next stop was the top...



off again...

lots of decisions to make



followed a powerline for a bit....



before poping out of the hills at the Wye River pub


time was getting away... it was christmas eve...and i needed to be in Melbourne at mums...at a reasonable time.....


so it was back onto the Great Ocean road for the twisty ride along the coast...



a stop in Geelong for a real late lunch then of to mums for christmas....and christmas day floods



a could of days later, it was time to head off again....
