Dave: Just got back to Canberra after a good ride back through Kosciusko national park. Thanks for all the work you put into organizing the HU meeting. I was impressed by the large turnout and met lots of interesting and inspiring people.
I hope I got some people interested in visiting Mongolia!
Well ,all in all i think the weekend went pretty well ,friday had a few schedualing issues as to not knowing when some presenters were arriving and some not arriving at all ,i was a little all over the shop there ,but got underway and had great presenters up with stories enthralling every one ,then the media projector shit self about 10.30 ,oh far out(mild version of what i really said) ,bit like breaking your only chain joiner link in the middle of the gobi dessert ,so the night ended a bit early
we managed to break the drought in the area by holding this event as it pissed down, on and of, all weekend, dampening the postie bike tyre change comp off the agenda . Saturday we had a lot of riders head up to dartmouth dam for some pics and some headed up to Mt Benambra into the clouds and then a wet ride back to Mitta
Saturday night we had to make do with my tv that Tim the pom kindly drove out from Albury, as we could not get a replacement projector ,after moving the chairs a bit closer all went well with great talks about Russia China ,Canada/USA as well as Central and South America ,
Robin from Safari Tanks did a great talk on how he got into making long range fuel tanks and how to make them
I would again say thanks to all the presenters as well as Kim and her team from the pub for looking after all us with great food (especially the spit roast)and a place to mingle and not to mention she let a lot of guys FREE camp at the back of the pub , and must also mention the great work Sian did with all the paperwork with registration, and Ann and Chris who manned the desk most of the weekend and sorted all the registrations,my mate Dove for his helping hands all weekend ,and Grant and Susan for the site without which we would not have these get togethers ,the best thing about these meetings is the people you get to chat to and swap a few travel stories ,so hope every one has safe travels this year and see you next year ,i'm off to south america for 6 months in may
piccies to come
I FOUND A PAIR OF SPECTACLES ON THE GROUND AT THE BACK OF THE PUB,THEY ARE IN A CASE AND LOOK EXPENSIVE, SO PM ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO POST THEM ON
