Well it's that time again. Moving to smaller, but better accommodation at Moriac, 10 minutes outside of Geelong. Still renting, but cheaper than what I was paying, and it comes with free electricity and internet. It's on a farm and looks down the Barrabool hills to the Barwon river so the view is great. The best thing is it puts me 10 minutes closer to some of the best roads in Victoria, which gives me the chance to really give it to the GRiSO. Sometimes life is good.

The owner has a garage.....with a full sized car hoist, a device for rotating the body of a car to spray inside and out, a 20x10x8 foot room with every nut bolt and screw you would ever need, another room with a huge variety of parts for any number of Fords, and a 12x 20x 8 foot lunch room with a couch, microwave, table, chairs etc....which I will be allowed to use. And did I say all the tools are air powered too?
I don't think he'd have too much of a problem with a bunch of GRiSO nuts being there for a weekend either.

Well I can't imagine riding the GOR with all that weekend traffic.  It was just bearable in the early '80s, much worse now I believe.  However the Otways used to be fun, maybe still good now?

The GOR is terrible on weekends with caravans, large tour buses, and now with added bicycles. The cyclists are a very obnoxious lot who think they won the road. It's not uncommon to be going uphill round a bend at the speed limit (80kph) and find a line of them across the only lane doing 5kph and wobbling all over the place. For their own safety and the safety of others they really should be banned, but the guvmint is scared of the backlash from these lycra clad fools.
The rest of the Otways is still good, especially during the week. Some very excellent riding to be had along the road from Skenes Creek for instance. You do still have to watch for skippy etc, but it's worth it.
