As we prepared for our last day on the road and as one of those old buggers...I reflected on the truth of the above slide...so true ...but unfortunately we have to go home and back to normality of life.

We would recommend the Club hotel to any bikers looking for some authentic country hospitality... as you cansee in the pic with Des being waved off by Dot, one of the owners.

It has been a running joke that Des always gets his coffee first, so after a chat to the waitress we made sure he was last...poor Des.
So, with stomach's full we headed out off on the Buxner Highway, beautiful tree lined road before turning off to to meandered through the beautiful valley & mountain on average roads to Woodenbog.
Enjoyed it so much that I forgot to take any pics so picked a few from Google images just for you that give you a little taste of its remoteness. We stopped for a break in Woodenbong and couldn't but appreciate the Crown Hotel with road and trail bike on roof!
So we finally made it back to familiar Territory, Mt Lindsay Highway twisting down the hill, past Mt Barney and more beautiful vista's, we were making good time and had decided to grab lunch at our usual stop at Macca's at Beaudesert ... but believe it or not, came across some tree felling on the highway which stopped us in our tracks.... a funny ending to such a free-wheeling roadtrip. The pic says it all!!
|you can almost hear the growling...let us go!!|
|Santa was not impressed either|
So it was a frustrating waiting game but thankfully we had the big red Honda with its full sound system to entertain us all.
|Drew & meagan park the big red for the last feed.|
|extensive research by Des suggest an ave 2.5 people on phone per stop!!|
