Is that the same Grantham that was badly hit by the flash flood a few years back?

Certainly is, the cafe was actually washed of its foundations and "floated" some distance away into a paddock.

WE did the same thing last year on the way to Quorn.

What, you floated into a paddock on your way to Quorn! Get out of here!

22nd. I will be trying to make it there to catch up. You must be planning a great trip, good on you. Cheers for the post.

Judging by the map Gary your ride route tomorrow looks very nice. Stay safe.

Kerrie and I still plan to be at Grantham tomorrow morning just after 9 am to see the Qlders off. Incognito, not on the Strom tomorrow. Cheers.

Sorry all -- won't be there for the send off this morning.
Two big day rides this week (I'd forgotten how steep the double descent is on the Boonah side of Queen Mary Falls -- the light rain didn't help!) and today I'm doing some last minute things with the Healey getting ready for next weekend's national rally at the Gold Coast.
Safe riding everyone and have fun.
Perhaps a catch-up and "debrief" at Flavours when you come home. You can admire the new plantings and landscaping there along with the new chunky outdoor tables and seating -- very impressive!

Now that is a great idea Don! Let's make that happen on their return.

We made it out there to see them off. The bikes really are set up well. I can only imagine the great night had by all at Strongarm's farm on their first night away last night. It was good to catch up with Tony as well.

Check out our breaky below. I made the mistake of asking my wife to order me a full breakfast. It was a great feed though. Talk soon.........
