We also rode the Putty road, but on our way home. Didn't have the nice weather you had  :|||| and it was the last day of our 13 days on the road  :'(


Great reading, thank you  :-++

I was thinking of staying over at Mt Beauty this weekend on the way to the RTE in Victoria, as have only visited but never stayed.

As I remember it, there's not a heck of a lot in Mt Beauty, better off poping over the hill to Bright?

Great descriptions Diesel.  Funny how your paths kept crossing.  Might be an ST homing instinct thing.
Plenty of great pix.  Funny too, how often travelogues focus on food!    :grin
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

We stood in just the same spot you took that pic inside the Beechworth Bakery on our way home......that Ned Kelly pie was just a little slice of heaven in pastry  :eat  :eat

Great reading thanks mate  ;-*

I can see why you gained weight after such a culinary tour.

I only put all my gear on the top bunk so all you other layabouts could move around in the cabin.  I was busy off showing St George where the nearest pub was for a quite reflection on life, as any other member would have done  :wink1

Goes to show how out of control Biggles and Diesel were, as I was able to come in the cabin, move everything off the top bunk and climb in without being heard.  Or perhaps they just cannot hear well these days  :OldMan
