Had lunch at the Crown yesterday as part of a TeamMoto adv ride. Stinking hot day so I surveyed the site and gave Daryl the ok to start digging. Hope it's ready by Saturday. (photo should appear below)



The puppies were there and look to be in good health.


Now, er, an announcement from me. I will be celebrating my 50th birthday this weekend. My wife is away at the moment, so I will take the opportunity on Saturday night to celebrate the occassion.

Cool Darryls putting a pool in my bedroom. Will be nice to have somewhere for the puppies to hang out.

Are you going via mt Burrell. Thought I might meet you at the Sphyx for a birthday latte, but will need to head home after that.

Default Reminder of some details

Reminder of some details.

It's on this coming wkend, Sat-Sun, Dec 8-9. See first post of this thread for link to map and Brett's address etc. We are camping at Brett's place.

Dinner will be at the nearby Urbenville Pub (7 kms). See first post for menu.
We can use Daryl's (publican) van to taxi back 'n forth. Late night bon-fire at Brett's.

Sunday breakfast BBQ, $5 per person. Paper plates, cups, plastic cutlery will be provided.

Fuel up bikes at either Woodenbong or Urbenville and grab ice before arriving at the property. QLD'ers will lose an hour crossing the border (NSW on daylight saving time).

Yes Dave Drinks as well as ice even if you bring a collapasble esky or one of those cooler bags.

Dave when did you say you will be set up at the pub, we could arrange a pick up from the pub and you could come out to the farm for a few drinks prior to the dinner and go back in on the bus.

Best you be at the pub set up and ready to come out to the farm about 2:30pm NSW time.

cheers

Default I'll be there......

If it's not raining.

The new 2nd hand DL650 is loaded up with the camping gear...a temporary arrangement.

Should be there about 3pm local time. I'm riding from Byron

Look for me on a 09 White V Strom. I'll be wanting to look at all your bikes, so be ready for my questions.

gg@bb, ava good day

Then more gravel via Glen Rd (BrettStrom's shortcut) and Boomi Crk Rd into Urbenville.

Even going hard top, it's 3 hrs (200 km) so adding in the gravel bits, it will be about 5 hrs. Steadily plodding on will be the order of the day. Due to a slightly faster pace, probably not suitable to beginners. BYO lunch & drink. Should be in Urbenville by early-mid afternoon NSW time. Anyone want to come with me?
.
Sorry, but I've never enjoyed riding dirt with a load of camping gear on the bike, and it's going to be too hot for me to willingly spend 5 hours riding. Mid-winter, without so much crap on the bike - a great ride .

If it's still in the high 30's, I'll slab up (very) early via Rathdownie/Woodenbong and take my chances with the wildlife, cooled off a bit I'll leave later.

Cheers
Pete
