The Tiger's footy club at Manji is going off. Started raining about 12.00 so all the punters are steeling themselves for the rest day ahead. There's an internet cafe in the club so might be some more posters. I'm doing my best to keep warm with raucous behaviour.

Hi there everyone, had a great ride. The route was fantastic, the towns went to alot of effort especailly Nanup, (the potbelly fire which was well used for drying out those wet shoes). The lunch stop at Voyager Estate was amazing, it was hard to leave. Every one worked very hard especally the vollies, they did a great job.
I would have liked to have been able to do the whole ride, and yes would differently do another one. There was talk of another ride here in 2 years time.
