Now if some-one could sell me Caroona Conservation Park I might be interested. Although I guess Kipo could do that.

Rode past there today. Didn't see a for sale sign.

Perfect day for a ride. Meet up at Spalding. Quick ride over to Burra for a pasty and coffee, before heading off to Mt Bryan east, the conservation park all the way to Terowie, before heading over to Jamestown for a few beers and some pork crakling.

The tracks out that way have to be ridden to be believed. Get out there guys.

This is a fond memory I had from the past Flinders Classic....I can't remember his name but was impressed with the emu feathers in his fork!

Lifes a lottery aint it?, I remember my own encounter with an emu doing a hundred kmh out of Tarcoola, thing came out of nowhere, no time to brake or do anything just closed my eyes and thought I'm dead and braced for impact, must have missed it by mm, opened me eyes and it was gone and I was still alive and upright , if I was a metre or two ahead of where I was maybe I wouldn't even be here who knows.

I read your ride report. It triggered my interest in going to look for the park. Found the shed you stayed at. Every choice we made took us to killer tracks. White hills, the park, dare summit road. All brilliant. Perfect weather too.
