Rifriaf: always good for a laugh.

If your adventure is any where near as entertaining as this thread, you must be having a blast.

Hi Ricky,
journey finished on the ninth of June.
I'm trying to find my memory stick with some pics so I can throw one or two up here.
Really enjoyed myself and learnt heaps.
I'll be much better prepared for my next trip.
Bike and trailer were well behaved.
I'm still a firm believer in bivvybags and though I took my tent, I never used it, instead utilising
a groundsheet (footprint?), self inflating mattress, bivvybag and tarpaulin during the wet weather.

Hi Andrew,
I need to read your thread to see when your setting out.
I'm looking forward to meeting you (in Freo?) before or after you return.
Cheers
Aidan :)

This was at the Wolf Blass winery north of Gawler (Nth. Adelaide) where I grabbed
a bottle of port and a nice Pinot Gregio (Silver label).

Will have to be after my return now .... guess you will still be around :)

I am in Adelaide River now and bailing back out to Darwin for a few days to try and shake off what ever I have got. Seems to be more than a cold now. $140 to stay here is hurting nearly as much as the wog. At least in Darwin Anne's sis can put me up and bring me back to here once I am okay in a few days.

I'll still be around :!: :)
I've a temp boarding situation in Two Rocks.
Sorry to hear your off colour.
I personally get decent results from fasting when ill. :idea:
I find four days "usually" gets rid of anything I'm suffering from.
Lots of water to drink flushes the system and helps give the illusion of
something in the belly.
Definitely something to try "only" when you've got your feet up and not
when cycling hard/long.
Hope your back to yourself soonest :!:
