I can vouch for the old school house. Firewood is a bit scarce there though.

Also before you guys go, be sure to call the tourism office at Burra and check the park is open - we found it closed on one occasion to due a feral cull (including Swedish ones apparently), so had to make some minor route alterations.

Would have liked to wait till its cooler, but the middle of the year is almost full already, including another inland trip (possibly Innaminka), plus my wife and I are doing a bit of our own 'cancer-free' celebrating OS in April. Throw in a mates wedding, obligatory bucks night/hangover weekend, Easter, family time, and work stuff, that's at least the next 6 months already gone!

Gotta go when I can!

Congratulations GS

After Mrs MB was declared in remission in August, we planned to do just that too last December, but "the devil" was just hiding & came back to play.

Trip canned within weeks of departure.

I hope you can make the most of yours

Cheers

That really sux Kym, sorry to hear it. It's such a kick in the guts, especially after putting a lot of energy into being optimistic and hopeful throughout the whole journey, only to have to do it all again. And it's not easy for us blokes to watch our beloved go through it - the problem solvers that we naturally are, can't do a bloody thing (a lot of the time, anyway).

Here's hoping the little F*&%er is gone for good this time!

Mrs GS had an inoperable tumor, and has been thankfully in the clear for nearly 2 years now. My malignant thyroid nasty hasn't resurfaced in nearly 9 years now - so is likely a thing of the past.........permanently Ten child-free days in Maui should do the trick.

Onwards and upwards I say....(and don't take a second for granted)!

I was talking to some guys yesterday who were discussing the potential up there now the oil has been found 'up the road'. I guess some aspects of other businesses would be getting excited too. Gee, I hope that you don't get too busy, it could eat into your riding time!!

My work career sunsets in about 6 weeks or so, my future involves using the maps and tracks I'm researching at the moment. Have I told you about my 2014 Cairns to Broome idea?? Just a few mates, northern winter, support, week's R & R in Darwin, and then Gibb River Rd (ish) to Broome and then many beers at the Sunset Bar at the Cable Beach Resort. Might transport the bikes out of there and fly home or continue the trip down to Alice on the Tanami. So far as the tracks are concerned I might need to entice MB to join in and sub-contract that aspect to the 'master'. Anyway, might not happen, but makes for great conversation around the beer fridge out the back on sunny afternoons.

Hope you enjoy your new bike...

Look on the bright side Gatey; with all of the speedies tied up the the TDU you couldn't pick a better time for a quick fang through the southern hills.

No need to worry about the TDU, Victoria will have it in a coupla years.

Then they'll turn it from a profit into a loss in double quik time.
