Oh, Andy, what a time you’ve had. I’m glad that you have had the courage to work through your hard times and are in a better state of mind now.
I reckon you may have passed within minutes of my house. Shame we couldn’t get together.
You’re very brave and you should be quite pleased with yourself.

I may have to stop reading about your journey Andy, it makes me want to just leave everything behind and take off.
DH and I spent a week riding around Tassie in March and it was the most wonderful, freeing holiday I have ever experienced. Taking just what we could fit for the two of us on the bike made me realise how little you truly need to be happy.September 21, 2010 at 9:13 am #478077from the ashesMember
wait till he gets to the best part of meeting me and my family probably will take 3-4 chaptersSeptember 21, 2010 at 9:18 am #478078
Is that you Ray? 😆 … That will get a whole chapter of it’s own because you guys :metal:
Michelle – What was your favourite place in Tassie? Am sure you did it in more style than I was … and on those flash Harleys 😉 …
Red Hen – I don’t think I’m brave. It is a shame we couldn’t get together. However, I will be back down there sometime … I’m always scooting around on my bike 😉 What part of southern NSW do you live near?September 21, 2010 at 8:51 pm #478079
Sorry guys – posted 3 long entries this morning. Got a lot of writing done last night. Have a lot on at work today so couldn’t space the posts out.September 21, 2010 at 11:18 pm #478080WombatMember
Just done the first installment, well done mate!:tup::kiss:

Thank you Nev 🙂 . I was a very different man by the time I arrived at your place than I was when I left home. And don’t worry – you and Mrs Wombat will be getting a big wrap too when I get to that part of the story :metal:September 22, 2010 at 7:06 am #478082HummerKeymaster
Good one Herby :wave:September 22, 2010 at 7:20 am #478083
Thank you Hummers. :kiss: You’re getting a whole chapter to yourself :tongue: Nah – I wouldn’t do that to you 😆
Day of rest tomorrow. No writing tonight or tomorrow morning. DW is home and is making steak and mashed spuds specially for me so no computer. Besides, 16,600 words is a lost to read so everyone deserves to give their eyes a rest :geek:September 22, 2010 at 7:37 am #478084HummerKeymaster
You’re getting a whole chapter to yourself :tongue:
:jawdrop: All your readers would be yawning by the end of it 😉
Enjoy your evening Herby :hug:September 22, 2010 at 8:15 am #478085Michelle-smMember
Michelle – What was your favourite place in Tassie?
Thats a hard question to answer, it is such a beautiful place.
I loved the little town of Ross in the midlands and I also loved Binalong Bay. The road between Launceston and St Helens is one of the most beautiful I have ever been on.
One of the guys that went with us did the trip on a 1944 Indian Chief. Not quite as comfy as the Harley but it sure was a conversation starter.:DSeptember 23, 2010 at 9:52 pm #478086
Oops – didn’t manage my rest day yesterday. Got all excited about writing the next entries and had to share. Later today you can all get to meet the lovely J from ALS. I met more ALSers during the second half of my trip than the first. I’ll tell you all about them as I go. Everyone was SO lovely that I hope I do them all justice :geek:
@ Humbug – 😆 They’ll be yawning at the end of it anyway. I started something a bit bigger than I intended when I first put pen to paper :shy: And then I didn’t even manage to have my day off yesterday because I just had to write more.
@ Michelle-sm – It is a beautiful place isn;’t it. I didn’t get to do the road from Launceston to St Helens … Might have to go back one day to do it 😉 Ben Lomond was my absolute most fave place in Tassie. Not that there’s anything there …
Oh wow! A 1944 Indian Chief – that sounds really cool. Who needs comfort when you’re riding a piece of biking history. 😉 I’m sure the Harleys were more comfy than my little beasty too.
I’m taking the bike to Quirindi this weekend to visit Melissa (who used to be on ALS). Writing about my trip has made me itch to get back out there. We’ll see how I feel on Sunday night after 8 – 10 hours riding a 250CC bike with the accelerator open full throttle just to keep on 110kph 😉September 23, 2010 at 10:16 pm #478087sue eMember
