So what a long weekend - OMG I kid you not - I had to keep the air-con on just to dry away the sweat from my palms for fear of steering wheel slipping through my hands (mind you it was 31 deg C on the West Coast of Tassie at one time). After I got off the Spirit of Tassie had to rush straight in to work as had a customer engagement all day so only now putting fingers to keyboard.
I'd like to thank @Rab, @k31th and @YLD127 for making it a fun filled long weekend, great mates, spirited cars, phenomenal roads and rare blue sky balmy weather in Tassie This time we a good number of new roads we hadn't done on the East Coast and some faithful challenging West Coast twisties that we loved so much in Nov last year we had to do again. Tassie really turned on the weather for us - made for some awe inspiring scenery we'd not seen before due to overcast clouds and rain previously - like mountain ranges just rising up as you come over the hill and lake vistas that reminded much of South Island New Zealand and Swiss Interlaken.
Gotta hand it to YLD127 for letting us stay at his place on the East Coast - farrk me was that holiday shack an awesome sleeper - if he told us earlier it has such panoramic views of Freycinet and Marie Island and its OWN private beach I would have suggested farrk stayin in Hobart and let's just base ourselves out of YLD's shack
Thanks k31th for showing us the way - even with the myriad of let's say roads that did not stay sealed (well one of 'em was my doin ). And Rab plying us with beers even when we knew we should not have had a coldie (like after comin back from the Wine Glass Bay Lookout 1 hr walk quite frankly totally dehydrated and then drank something to make us even more dehydrated but farrk at least it was cold ... Well YLD - he supplied us shelter and used his local intuition for consistent picks for us to partake in Tassie home grown dining.
All up for me 2105 km over the 4 days and on this trip there was reasonable number of locations for 98 RON (though not for Strathgordon - we had to come almost all the way back to New Norfolk for fuel but that was expected). I have not worked out the total vid footage yet but as a guide day 1 was about 149GB just from me alone. I'll try to post up some more pics soon.
