Had the roads to my very, very self.... lots of folks busy in the gardens, fields and paddocks, many waving as I went past.
Maybe CoVid isn't ALL bad?

The perfect day to go mental out there, no cops in sight.
I maybe hit the 75kmh ...once.


It just felt wrong to let loose when the world around is stuck in 2. gear.

Had some nice chats with some locals along the way instead...that felt like the right thing to do.


Lots of supersmooth and supergrippy no-dust gravel, even the usual winter-slop 'n slide up Panton's Gap was in prime nick, sheesh!
Gladysdale Bakehouse is open again (was?? open again, today = stage3) Takeaways only, but the bacon+egg bagel was as juicy as when they introduced it, many years ago!. :drool:

It’s good to see the Bakehouse has stayed open. They were closed during the last lockdown and reopened when the 20 in a restaurant came in. They have gone all fancy and cafe like and added cutains on the deck to keep the tourists warm when they can sit down again.
Sassafras, Olinda, Mt Dandenong and Sherbrooke were all dead today. The busiest place was the bottle shop in Olinda who were not enforcing their 6 people limit.

Re: Breakout
 
Looks like they've been closed in between, had "re-open" signs out on the road.

Olinda bottleshop most probably had the best turnover in months then, flogging whatever stock they had before it's "curtains-down" again.

A friendly word from the farmer got me to push the Husky out of the way... I was blocking the access track.
