A mate and I took a few days off work to go riding in Far East Gippsland. We arrived just on dark,got a fire going and snagged up.

Beware of the feral animals around here..........they'll steal your beer and tucker when your not looking. A sharp blow between the eyes usually sorts em out.

Beer.....snags.......swag......and it's morning.

We get off to an early start and hit the trails.

Back to camp after a great days riding.......a mix of open tracks and tight sandy tracks with lots of jumps.

Barby and beer time again......and of course more MEAT.

I slept like a baby despite the dingo howling in the distance.

Eggs and bacon for brekky and wey're off to check out the beach.....

Dunes in the distance..........I'm outta here....

Freddy found a hat.

After pissing around on the sand all day I wanted to have a fish. Chucked a line in late afternoon and relaxed on the beach. We were joined by a whale and what looked to be her calf. They played around close to shore for a while but I had a hard time trying to get a pic. All I got was a fin (centre of pic).

A great couple of days......and the best thing.....we were the only ones in the Thurra River camp and we did'nt pass one vehicle the whole time we were out riding.......gotta love that......

Gippsland looks like dirt bike heaven.

Some men like the foul'n,
Some men like to hear........

Great pics of far east Gippsland, the cook up looks 5 star.
Its a bloody shame about the feral animal getting in to your beer and meat.
