That time is drawing closer. I have let my boss what know, I did not what to work for them any more. So, I thought this would a good time to load the bike and bugger off for awhile. Buy a one way ticket an catch the overnight prison ship ( sorry ferry ) to the big island. With no real plans and only a rough idea of few places to visit. I am arriving in Melbourne on the Monday before World super bikes. First thoughts are. Do the boring slog up the fume to Corryong. Set the tent up for a couple nights at Colac Colac caravan park. Dump the gear off and ride for the day around Geehi or 3 mile dam. After that, pack the bike and ride down past Mitta Mitta, Blue duck (might camp there) Omeo, maybe Bentley Plains. Ride to Lakes Entrance area and catch up with my mates, I started riding with all decades ago. On Friday we load our bikes and ride to Phillip Island for the WSBK races. Next catch the ferry across the Mornington Peninsula., Great Ocean rd. Then head North through the Grampians and link up with the Silo Art Trail North. Leading into South Australia and all points West. That is about as I far as I sort of planned. Like most things in life. There is always a fly in the ointment. For past year or so. I have been feeling really ill. Four doctors and plenty of tests later, show I am healthy. The best way to describe how I feel is. When you go out with your mates and you drink way, way to much. The next morning you feel like crap. The smell of food makes you want to vomit, headaches, All you want to do crawl up into a little ball. I have been feeling like that 24/7 for months on end. I am quite pissed off with it. I am not going to let a little thing that stop me from doing a bit of riding. Maybe a bit of fresh country air is what the doctor has not ordered. They say closing the front door is the hardest thing in any adventure. On Sunday the 18th of February. I will be doing just that. I am open to ideas and suggestions of places to visit on this mystery ride.
