By popular demand, it’s on again. 😀
(Well, I hope it’s popularly demanded.)

February is often too hot, and April is getting close to Easter.

All else is open to suggestions. 
It’s never possible to have a time that works out for everyone, but I’m happy to take suggestions for:
A) which weekend
B) route/ride plan

Between us, we should be able to come up with a plan. 
This far out (Oct 2019 as I write), nobody can guarantee their availability, but please only make a date suggestion or agree with someone else’s suggestion if you have at least a reasonable likelihood of being able to make it for those dates.

Cheers,
Bill

I expect to make that next year Bill. I have no particular dates at this stage but I think a weekend in March would be good.

Cheers, Nigel

It is well known that I have always struggled to find an appropriate birthday present for my wife Sharon (19th Mar) and that is why I shouted her a couple of trips to Jindabyne. And after this years superb rumble through the Vic Alps, I can see no reason why I should not present her with a similar trip next year. Count me in at least.

Thanks, Matthew. I'd been thinking I should give this a bump.

Rick G's suggestion of one of the last two weekends sounds good to me, and works for Pegasus, but as always there are potential flies in the ointment. This would likely be true for whatever dates are proposed.


  • For those who are in the BMW Touring Club of NSW, 21-22 March has been suggested as a Classic BMW ride to Nabiac. Not confirmed as happening, just been put out there.
  • The BMW GS Safari website has no details of their route or accommodation stops, but we'd probably be OK anyway, as it seems they don't start from Philip Island until Monday 30, leaving Sat 28 and Sun 29 clear for us.


Over to the Krew . . .

Bill

In a few days I'll make a decision between 21-22 and 28-29 March.

Any input between now and then will receive due consideration.  Smile

28-29 suits me better as I will be finished my 12-month-long immunotherapy treatment by then.
It's a long way down for me. It will take me a couple of days to get down south.
I can't put the big kilometre days in at the moment due to my health problems.
Have you thought about a first day meeting point and what pub we will be staying at?

Actually, I won't be able to make either of those dates as 28 March is the Local Government elections up here.
The Saturday before (21st) is when they hold the training meeting and I get the materials for my polling booth.
Working at council, state (October 2020) and Federal elections gives me good pocket money to spend on more toys!
Any chance you could make it the first weekend in April?

I missed last year’s, even though I initiated it, because I was running the pre-poll voting centre and then a regular polling for the state election in NSW.

As indicated last week, date is now fixed to Sat 28, Sun 29 March.

This is assuming that there is no immediate fire danger by then. We can only hope, not just for our convenience but especially we'd like to see no more people enduring the dire situation many have had to deal with in recent times.

Here in Goulburn there have been a couple of small fires nearby, but quickly dealt with by the RFS. (Rural Fire Service, local groups of volunteer firefighters with some government support for organisation, training and equipment.) Other states have similar organisations under slightly different names. We in Goulburn, and many other places have only had to deal with a constantly smoky atmosphere. Sadly, my Cooma-based son lost a good friend, killed on his farm half way to the coast.

That brings up the topic of the route. Many places depend on tourism for income, and the fires have made it impossible to visit. I hope we can go somewhere that might give a modest boost to the tourism income for a couple of places that may benefit from our visit.
To be determined.

Bill

Bill, At this stage I am unable to commit. I've bitten the bullet and have organised to see Mack the Knife to get my RHS ankle operated on. It has been giving me a lot of grief lately, been getting worse and worse (can hardly walk, let alone long distance ride...)

Am seeing him tomorrow with X-rays etc. I don't know how soon he can get me on the slab for the chop, but I daresay that it would be before the end of March. If so, I will be out of action for at least 6 months.

But, if he can't do it until after, I will most likely go for the jolly down south.

Rickmeister.

Hey Rickmeister, silver lining time - at least its your right leg, if I recall correctly from trying to keep up with you, it’s not like you use that foot much on the rear brake pedal anyway. If it was your gear changing leg, that would be whole lot more serious!

lol!

Seriously though, hope the quack gets it sorted for you and you’re up and riding again soon.

Bill et al,

I am unable to attend this year's ride. Not because of the ankle, but family commitments preclude the opportunity.
