A Taste of Hollywood
Saturday 11th December 2010 – Arrived at the ferry at 1pm so had to wait for 4 hours before I could check-in. So I got talking to a couple of guys who were part of the film crew for “The Hunter”, a film starring Wilhelm Dafoe and Sam Neil. They were pretty funny and most put out by the thank you gift of a tea towel that had been given to all the crew. I also met up with some of the other bikers I’d met on the way out – like 2 of the WA boys and the group from Sydney.
This morning the ferry docked at 6.30am so I rode off with the intention of riding up the Tullamarine/Citylink Highway up to Raceway Suzuki – a journey of about 15 minutes. However I couldn’t find my way onto it and ended up taking a 20km detour via the Western Gate Freeway! It wasn’t really a problem as I still got there for 7.30am. Another guy arrived at 8am and kept me company until they opened at 9am. Then I met up with Lisa for breakfast while they serviced my bike.
Another bit of poor navigating added another 30 mins onto my attempt to find the road to Albury (turns out its the road to Sydney). It was horrible coming out of Melbourne, strong winds and heavy traffic, but once I got clear of the city limits, it brightened up a bit and the remainder of the trip was most pleasant.
