Hi Vince - sorry to see you stop but completely get it. Doing it alone while your wife was at home would have been very hard. For sure, my wife and I, travelling as a pair, help each other immensely, with everything.

Meanwhile - if you get the chance, watch ABC iView. Look for the show called "Moving to the Country" episode 4 Top End / NT. I just watched it and it featured a friend of yours. It was a pleasure to watch the show but to honest, you covered it just as well in your blog!

Hi Toby, thank you for your considered comments. I especially appreciate your thoughts on people that shout abuse. It's a different perspective to what I was thinking. It's a compassionate view and I like it. I will try to remember this the next time I cope abuse. Thanks mate.

Hi Vince,
Glad to hear you made it home so quickly. I really enjoyed reading everything you wrote and the pictures. I showed me places I have not been and places I have in a different light. Your writing keeps the reader interested, Well done. Cant wait for you to go on your next trip.

Vince,
I loved the posts and a bit sad that they have come to an end - at least for now. It was your writing style - short, straight to the point sentences, and pictures that was particularly captivating.

I'm pleased the vast majority of people cheered and waved you on the bike. Most people are kind. As in life, you'll also get a few abuses. But life is also hard, and it must have been hard on them to behave that way.
Bless Gomer.

Cheers, Toby

Thanks for the gold star ⭐! I really enjoyed researching and learning while following along. Oz has been a fascinating place, but out of reach for me. Your journal provided me a chance to take a tour even though I can't do it hands-on. Thanks for your diligent posting! I looked forward to my daily dose as you travelled. Keep the cranks turning!
