That would be the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel?

Are you sure that's not the Opera House I can see in Bill's proverbial light at the end of tunnel?

And it's not the Fernleigh track, either??

Well, I am all out of ideas.

Victoria - yes.  Wang - no.  A little further south.

Bill, the light at the end of the tunnel wasn't bright enough to show the way though!

Dabba, G'day. Cheviot Tunnel? The 200m long brick lined tunnel on the Gouburn River Rail Trail.

I reckon that's not even a tunnel, I think you got there just after Wyle E Coyote.

Spot on Warren.  I rode about 120kms of the total 134kms of the new rail trail soon to be opened.  I went from Mansfield to Tallarook, but didn't have time to take in the 14kms spur line to Alexandra.

Dabba, Cheers. Wyle E Coyote, certainly gets around.

I hope the weather was good while you were touring. I remember something that you wrote back in Spring 2011, about the continuing wet weather throughout this year? You've certainly been right. Do you have a prediction for winter?

People are predicting snow in Gyra and Stanthorpe in Qld this winter, with warmer than normal nights and colder than average days thanks to prevailing winds traveling across the Continent from the NW of WA.

One cant trust the Bom nowadays. It is like the BoM are predicting from models rather than analysing the real weather. I trust you more than the Bom.

Warren, don't be too hard on Bom.  I use the 12 month predictions for rain at the Elders Weather site.  I've found it to be useful.  For the areas that you mentioned, Guyra looks like normal rain in June, but wetter in the other months, while Stanthorpe looks like it will be wetter than usual until September.  Hope that helps.

On my trip I did substantial re-routing of the original plan due to the flooding in early March.  I only got seriously rained on when riding from Adelong to Tumbarumba, and decided to motel it at Batlow - so I only rode in rain for about 4kms.  I believe that it did snow lightly in the Falls Creek/Mt Hotham area, where I had originally planned to go, and if I had gone through the Kosciuszko NP to Corryong via Cabramurra, I would have had to turn around and go back as the road had been washed away and would not be open until after October.

Looks like up near Mount Sugarloaf.
