    Thanks Trev,
    I've been up there once before a few years back, my first bike trip after about 25 years off road riding, & had a pretty good guide to help out. Want to see if the roads/tracks are as difficult as I remember them.

    It's all changed Pete, they even get cars up there these days, the power is on (in some places) and you can even get a cold beer here and there :D. There will be many guides available to you and the options, at all degrees of difficulty, are endless. It's the nights you have to watch out for though!!:lol3

    See you there.

    Got your PM Peter, and your change of mind to a dorm bed. If you could reply with which nights it's no problem at all.

    cheers

    I keep hearing good things about this Flinders Classic thing :D
    Put me down for camping if I'm not too late. F,S,S I guess.
    Are there trees I can hang my hammock from?
    Cheers.
    Paul.

    Welcome PP, I'm not sure about trees but I reckon an enterprising bloke could find somewhere to tie a hammock. I guess you'll be travelling with the other GTR guys?
    Cheers

    Found another reason not to go to the Para Pub during the Classic, there's a strong rumour that Julia Gillard and the federal tourism minister will be touring the Flinders that weekend. They'd have to be staying there in the posh underground rooms wouldn't they? :wink:

    Ha ha ha, read about your 'difficulties' over there. There's rumours of some tourism awards being distributed around the Flinders. I wonder if the Classic made a short list?:lol3
