I dodged the kangabunnies over the Warby Ranges west of Wang.

Atleast once on the flats, the drizzle stopped.

Numurkah. Nathalia.

I tagged onto the rear of a bikie parade west of Barmah. It seems my goretex adventure suit clashed with their costumes and I was soon invited to leave their outlaw party....:killingme

Through Echuca and the tourist hoards as quickly as possible.

I had initially thought of staying here tonight.

But neither pub is in active business these days.

Jeparit was full.

As was Warracknabeel.

As was Minyip.

It was getting dark on the ride to Donald.

https://photos.smugmug.com/2019-Quee...1080630-XL.jpg

The first three places in Donald were full as well. Bizarrely I seemed to be the only guest staying at the last pub on offer. OK it was the most expensive pub room in the history of pub rooms but the place was clean and partially renovated and the owners were super friendly and helpful...W-)

As there was no one in my pub's dining room at 7pm, I figured I'd take in town. Now I must say I'm rather proud on my efforts not only did I find good steak at the western pub - I managed to drink the town of Donald dry of stout....:chug:

It wasn't all that hard I must admit - western pub total supply 3 stubbies, my pub total supply 2 stubbies, eastern pub zero - but I'm claiming it :killingme

Now given the weirdness of my lodgings, I'm happy to report I woke up with all of my organs, my bum didn't hurt and well I didn't wake up dead...

Temps dropped and into the fog at Gunbower.

I cut south towards Kyabram looking for the sun.

Found it around Shepparton.

Heading towards lunch at Dookie.
