    Road into Bear Gully camping ground is gravel.

    Road into Prom - officially there was more gravel than asphalt, the challenge was the holes were pretty seriously all over the place and deep. Would have been better if it was all dirt and they ripped the asphalt off as it gave you a false sense of security. Part of it were the trucks going in and out repairing Mount Oberon.

    Bear Gully is still gravel :D

    How long ago was the road crap to the Prom?

    Haven't been there for a few years, but the views were beautiful, don't remember gravel on the road though.

    The only thing against the Prom is paying to camp at the campground and the wombats, possums, birds etc stealing food if they can. Including going into the vestibles and opening your bags and pinching stuff while you are asleep. :eek1

    Not a problem. But with your height I definitely think the KTM is much more your style (oh and the BMW so I don't upset the BMW riders). Oh, that's right I have one of those (the mini one for mini-me). (Sorry Miss Jane :evil)

    Woops, we slipped off the front page. :wink:

    Going on my first solo trip for 6 days camping. I have called it "Postcards for Jardine" tour. :D

    Will finish at Wangaratta on Friday the 15th and staying with my brother for the night.

    See you chix whenever and wherever. :wave

    Been riding around the lumpy bits of western Vic for three days, had a great time but no internet.

    Canary I think it is safe to reckon on meeting us at Mansfield or there a bouts. You have a great time girl, good on ya for doing your first solo trip.:clap Looking forward to hearing all about it.

    Yeah, what happened? :ear

    Thanks. :D

    Won't be as exciting as your dirt adventures, but hopefully it will still be good. Have to start somewhere. :nod

    Getting all my gear ready as usually V Twin and I share, but I will have to take all my own gear this time. All good with the camping as been camping forever and will be staying in caravan parks. Just have to work out where to pack all my stuff so that it is easy to get out only the stuff that I need. I guess that I will work that out after a couple of days. :lol3

    Have fun Canary. I mostly travel on my own as I find others don't want to do what I want to do. I find it does wonders for my confidence and self esteem. Just think, you can have as many coffee/chocolate stops as you want!:clap

    And look at the shops. :D

    Hubby always races me past them although I just want to have a browse. We sometimes stop in towns for lunch, then off before I can check out any local shops. :(:

    Things that can only be discussed away from technology and preferable with chocolate.

    Hi Gals,
    Have you decided on a final plan yet? Looking forward to catching up with the Chix. Is anyone heading off on Friday. I have Friday and Monday off if anyone is up for making a longer weekend of it.:clap
