For the last day's adventures, other than the "snow" stuff (I'll edit a clip together to show it all from my in-car footage and YLD127's front-facing camera footage). 

 

Just after we "escaped" from the what looked like blizzard conditions haha. Lined up for a shot or two. I was too nerve jangled to get a pic like Gary's earlier in this thread.

We backtracked to Omeo and the headed home via Bairnsdale instead. We said goodbye to YLD127 and got a dry-aged T-Bone each from the specials board. Delicious for a steak but fairly low quality for a dry-aged steak (medium-rare for me, of course)

Then it was 3 and a half hours back to my house and the "made it home" post above. 

 

Thanks to @EvilDaifu, @Rab, @YLD127 & @El Andrew for an epic cruise as always through the beautiful snowy mountains :) more media and stories to come, I'm sure.

Who's still driving with an eagle eye out for pot holes - 4 days of them I can't quite stop doing it :roflmbo:

Always did, well before all the flooding-related pothole production haha, my vigilance certainly increased when I put the 20's on the car :spamlaser:

So I just went to pick the car up from getting a wheel balance... All four are buckled.

I only had one direct hit. The guy reckons I probably did a front and back then and the others would have been sometime in the last couple of months around Canberra and I just didn't know

$1200...

Serious Andrew!  I knew I took at least 4 direct hits, just some bad choices in last minute direction changes. Wondering if mine are buckled as well - I have my suspicions.  Don't feel any difference in driving though.  I was hoping we were going fast enough to skim across the top of most of the ones I couldn't avoid but some were like 80cm wide craters ...

Yeah they said one was bad and three very minor. Got a second opinion this morning (dropped it in for a balance and didn't mention previous diagnosis) and they said exactly the same thing as the first place.

Maybe I should just buy new wheels that would clear Brembos...
