G'day all,

If any one is planning on doing a bit of exploring around the area may I recommend Buchan Valley Roadhouse, I passed by here just over a month ago on a work trip and had the best home made lamb pie I've ever eaten. Lovely people too  :like

Here's my review to back up my story :)

Neil & Valerie, Denis & Diane are booked at the Hilltop Hotel, Omeo for the 26th May.
Making it a leisurely 3-4 day ride via Bright and other places, taking the chance to smell the roses along the way, one of the benefits of being retired.
See you there
Cheers
Neil

I thought I may make this one with Chris in the car but it looks as if we are stuck with training our newly acquired pooch for a few weeks on Sunday mornings. First day on Sunday without the dog. To see if the humans are trainable I guess.
So unless we put off the first few weeks of training whicjh is a remote possibility only we  will not make it.


Have a great weekend.
And keep showing our northern neighbours how to do RTEís.

Unlikely for us to be there before 4:00pm.

Is there anyone  coming passed Traralgon on the way to Omeo

Depends on which route we ride.  Preferred ride will be via Hotham, but if there's forecast of too much chilly wet weather we'll be riding via Bairnsdale.   That would have us at Traralgon for lunch.  But either way, won't know until the Friday evening.

Updates in red.

Those who have indicated an interest, so far:

At the Inverloch RTE, Rex asked about timing of our evening meal because he (and I presume Debbie) will be participating in a FarRide, and thus could be late.  That being the case, I reckon well move from the bar to the dining room at around 7:00pm.  Hope that'll suit everyone.

Bonus is more bar time.

Extract from an email from Angie at the Hilltop Hotel in Omeo:

Hi Michael,

Just to let you know that we are still waiting on the rest of your group to book- in, as we only have Neil, Val, Dennis & Diane so far.  The others could miss out as we are starting to fill up.  Just thought l would let you know.

Cheers Angie
Hilltop Hotel Omeo

Mmmmmm ...... Neil, Val, Dennis & Diane, but no Michael & Helen - despite my two emails.  If you have booked in (like me) better give them a call (like me) to confirm.

If you are attending this event but have not yet booked-in, you should and probably sooner than later.

The Hilltop has a dinner, bed & breakfast deal for $120:00 per couple, which some of us have already booked.

Saturday, via Mount Hotham or Falls Creek?   Hmmmm .......... this looks interesting - https://goo.gl/maps/NRfABZXENik.

Mint and Jam, 46 High St, Yea???  https://goo.gl/maps/qKvXpqmbJa32

Bit early for us, our earliest departure is 9:30am, that puts us in Yea around 10:30am, or 9:30am on the ST's clock (I have not changed it since day-light savings), but that might not help much.

Ask Denis to take a couple of plugs leads off his ST to slow him down a bit.

If you have your mobile in the "ON" mode, I'll call around 15 minutes before Yea, you can order a couple of mugs of skinny cappuccino - Helen will pay you.

Hi all, wanted to come along just to annoy everyone. Umming and arrring for the last couple of weeks, but I am still trying to finish the project, Morry.
Anyways, need to work tomorrow as we have some pondage getting dredged, and they asked for Number 1 sweeper operator to attend, he couldn't, so it's me. Positive out of it is more bikkies for Mackay.

Enjoy all, have a great time and not too many reds........... :-((( :wht11

Hi All,
       What a fantastic weekend of riding on our Omeo RTE in glorious Victoria.
No rain, plenty of sunshine, a bit of fog, loads of twisties & sweepers, some new seal bits, some frost & ice in a couple of damp corners near the summit of Mt Buffalo, also ice on a steep incline nr the summit of Mt Hotham and snow lying in a couple of shaded areas alongside the road.
Not to mention the after ride conversations & laughter over beer, wines and great food.
Plus the regular stops for delicious cafe food & coffees along the way, would do it all again in a heartbeat. Brilliant
A special thank you to Sir Michael for making it all happen.
For those that couldn't make it this time - folks, you missed a beauty!!.
See you all next time
Cheers
Neil & Val

Here's a few more pics from my camera roll.

Met up with Neil & Val and Denis Diane at Yea, nice little coffee stop, the Mint & Jam, better coffee than the either of the bakeries.  Then a quick sprint through Mansfield, Tolmie (gotta love them twisties) and lunch at Whitfield.

(http://i643.photobucket.com/albums/uu159/williamson_photos/RTE%20Omeo%20May%202018/IMG_0314_zpsmcf6q2si.jpg) (http://s643.photobucket.com/user/williamson_photos/media/RTE%20Omeo%20May%202018/IMG_0314_zpsmcf6q2si.jpg.html)

Overnight at Bright, beers and pizza at the brewery, Mount Buffalo Saturday AM and then over the top of Mount Hotham (some slippery, icy moments in the shadows of CRB Hill), and onto Omeo for a late lunch at the Bakery.

Checked into the Hilltop, the oldies and Helen had a nanna nap, I went for a walk around town.  Met up in the bar around 6:00pm, found Doggy and Lar Lah and then into the dinning room. 

Much discussion and words of advice to Lar Lah who was riding home to Traralgon (with Doggy) after dinner.  Lar Lah's unfaired, sans heated grips Honda (NTX?) would've been challenging in the sub-zero temps expected.  I suppose she made it, at least we didn't read about them in the news papers.

Some dinner pics:

Home via Bruthen (brief stop) and Maffra (good reliable lunch at the Latitude cafť in the main street), and arrived home at 6:00pm.

Thanks to all for attending, the good company, the laughs, Neil's jokes (which I can't repeat) and the overall good time.
