As strange as it may seem I’ve been travelling with salad.
For some reason it’s been really hard to change my mindset. Having done a lot of hiking in the past I tend to carry light foods, dried pasta, dried fruits and nuts and powdered milk. Everything is simple. The thing I’ve struggled to get my head around is there’s usually a camp kitchen at most caravan parks and if they’re close to town there’ll be a supermarket down the road. So meals don’t have to be dehydrated or powdered crap. There’s the option to go down the street and get a few sausages or a bit or chicken. I can make a salad or whatever suites because at the moment…

Taking the train back to Bairnsdale was beautiful. Christmas came with a lot of personal challenges so the ride back was a chance to breathe and prepare for what was to come. My ass was feeling a lot better, up until I had gotten to Bairnsdale the aches and pains had just grown and grown. So the rest was well needed. I hadn’t had a chance to train for the before I left so it was a matter of just get on the bike and go. Just keep pushing! Continue reading “Ride Update #2”
Staying at the Nowa Nowa caravan park tonight. I didn’t quite make it to Orbost. Only did 50Km today. Going all the way to Orbost meant I would have gotten in to late and they most likely would have been full. So I took the safe option and stopped at the Nowa Nowa Caravan Park for the night.

Taking the train back was like a slow ride back into reality.
Bringing back all the things I didn’t get a chance to deal with before I left. Like the bike parts I’d been carrying. I’ve been carrying bike parts around for over 600Km. Bits that needed to go on the bike. I’ve also been carrying a folder of paperwork that I hadn’t dealt with yet. Too preoccupied with travelling, getting away from the reality that surrounded me back home.

So I made it down to the south point!
Not without dramas though. It’s a 40Km walk up and back from the campground which essentially is an overnight walk. That’s all good but I’m not geared up for an overnight walk. Parks Vic were adamant that even though there was a vehicle trail most of the way down there, bikes were not permitted. Continue reading “Down to South Piont”
