Yeah...sorry...this ISN'T another Ride-report :doh:
(I honestly had enough of those for a while after the Tornanti Yarns :upyrs: )

Just some pics from along the way.... after a chaotic couple of months at work and home, the Xmas-rush and no time to plan or prep anything at all...just throw the tent and some bits in to the cage and get OUT for a few days!

Along the Acheron Way

The bushfires last year have cleared lots of bush between Tolmie and Whitfield...the remains have been cleaned up and new logging roads lead to brilliant lookouts...

The timber steps and ladders at Powers Lookout also burned out....and getting replaced with brandnew steel-constructions at the moment.
(Not the platform at the carpark, but the actual lookout which is about 10 mins walk from the carpark)

The simple life...right at the King River...Gentle Annie Caravan Park/ Whitfield.

You should think yourself lucky.. At least your drinks will stay cold. In this 40C heat I am forced to drink my beer very fast before it warms up and melts!! :chug:
