The original plan this weekend was to head off to Woomargama National Park on Friday after work and camp at the Samuel Bollard campsite on the Hume and Hovell Track. Then I would hang out Saturday while Nigel went four-wheel driving in the national park. Then, on Sunday, I would head off for a two-day ride to test out my bike refurbishment and pick up a couple new roads for my list.
But…. there were already people at the camping area that would enable that plan. So, in the waning daylight of Friday we went bouncing along the four-wheel drive track to another camping area 20 kms further into the park.
This totally wiped out my original plans. It was for the better though. I was still able to test out my bike (it is awesome now!) on Sunday on new roads (tracks), spend time with Nigel, and go for a bushwalk, too. The weather Sunday turned out to be very hot (36C – 96F) and incredibly windy (35-40 kph with gusts to 65 kph), so I was glad not to be out on the original route.
Monday I will do a favourite ride from home before heading into town to get a helmet mirror and other items for the upcoming high country tour. Here are a few photos from the weekend.
