Default Re: Minyip Madness - 2015 Timbo Tours 21/22 Nov

My tour of town was delayed when two dudes in a modern Mercedes made a hasty stop and opened the conversation with....

...are you with the bike riders from Melbourne....?

We was famous.

Minyip appears to be doing it pretty tough. Most shops in main street appear long closed.







Back at the open pub, it was time for dinner.

A bright n early Sunday started with deep geopolitical discussions....




Meanwhile, the peak hour traffic built up.




Already enjoying blue skies.




Plan was to make Donald for breakfast. Unfortunately, no electricity in town until noon.




Not to worry. Charlton is only down the road. Nope. No power there.

Maybe Boort....




Nope.

It was no apparent, most of us did not have enough fuel to make Echuca


While the others consulted google, I took the chance to play a little.

2003:




Today:




It seems it's only the model of Kawasaki that changes....

We decided to roll the dice and head for Pyramid Hill.

Success





Into Echuca for overpriced and very average burgers.




Paddle steamer.

Lots of straight roads and it was time for icey poles with the painted cows of Murchison.










Nev took the lead to a wonky bridge and final fuel at Seymour.





The Strath Creek general store. Did Nev have a parma there recently....




We split to head for home at Kinglake West.





Trip distance: 1,200km approx. for me.
