Default Blast through Woods Point.

A mild summer day and no work...

Something tells me the shire council doesn't understand how lookouts work.





I'm gathering a collection of photos here



The view out the back...



Between Woods Point and Kevington.





Another good meal from the Kevington pub for lunch followed by some views over Lake Eildon



Route was through Healesville, Marysville, Woods Point, Jamieson, Eildon-Jamieson Rd, into Alexandra, Whanregawren Rd, Chevoit Rd and rolled into Yea @361km where I put 13.6 litres into the 14 litre tank (I filled it right to the top of the filler neck in the morning so I probably had 1.2 litres still usable), then home via Kinglake West.

I went to 3 different sign posted lookouts last week over the high country, all of them you couldn't see anything because of over growth..

the conspiracist in me say the Greens have won

Yeah, ordinarily I budget on a range of around 330kph, so 360 was pretty good for a day out. I guess not having luggage hanging off helps.
