Mmm. Well, um, here I am.

I've been reading this group's (mis)adventures with interest which has piqued my own .

My sole experience so far off-road has been on unsealed roads and tracks found between here and Victor Harbor (found more than I expected since I got lost more often than not). But then I've only had my current set of wheels (actually my only ever wheels) for four weeks - I'm still running it in (1000 km down, 600 to go ).

So I'm putting my hand up for any rides (as long as they don't involve getting up at 4am - that's against my religion ). The advantage to having me along is that I'd make everyone else look good

Cheers,
Nicholas

Flying home Tuesday evening and the amount of roos on the road between Adelaide and Port Augusta I wont be riding overnight so I am not sure if I can get the old Kato to do 550ks By 10:30 Wednesday morning?

I will either have to give it a miss or organize a different meeting point.

You've been at the Rock Farm too long Jase ......................... are the roos jumping that high or are you flying that low? .........keep reading further down ........

How do ya go with boat trips.

Meeting at Cowell Bakery was suggested for any locals & gutta folk (hi kipo ) who may want to join us.

Quite a dusty days riding at a very, very brisk pace, if I do say so, but fun all the same.
Damn hitch hikers though
