Tim!!!

PRIME STUFF!!!
And way too highly rated to rip through it.

Please, mate...do us a favour and post it up SLOWLY.
This looks like a hell of a big yarn and really needs a bit of time to digest, gawk, google up all the places and roads on Gmaps and really enjoy the read.



I was actually going to ask you tonight over a beer if you'd ever written up something of that ride....
YEE-BLOODY-HA!!!

Day 5: Walcha to Grafton

Distance: 430 km Total: 2,505 km

I checked out the grave of Captain Thunderbolt (bushranger) on the way to Armadale.



Lots of u-turns as I roamed and started exploring.







Not surprisingly, lots of waterfalls were found along the Waterfall Way into Bellingen.



Back up to Dorrigo and then the back roads into Grafton.



The staff at the Grafton Hotel were expecting a quiet night and so let me park my bike inside the dance hall disco.

My serenity was tested when I was beset by an utter tool on a BMW. No matter what I tried that night I was unable to shake my cling-on.

Tim, it is ALWAYS freezing cold in Walcha. Never experienced it any other way!
