    And yes, total win for living in Esperance. Jumping off the rocks at Twilight beach had to be one of my highlights for that trip. (also Cape Le Grand is freaking gorgeous, good fishing there too)

    Don't mind people riding with me, but I'm doing the ride self supported, so you gotta be prepared to camp on the side of the road, eat cold baked beans, and shit in the bush

    The good part is, I'll be riding like a turtle, 15-20km/h so anyone could keep up :P

    I am so keen for some more fixed touring.

    Perth>Melbourne not so much. A good thing to say to have accomplished but boring as bat shit.


    There is already talk of Cairns to Brisbane late in 2010. IMHO way more exciting then Perth>Melbourne. A shitload of KM's to cover, but at least you can stay on the coast and go through heaps of beach and country towns etc.

    Perth to Albany via the coast route would be awesome. Esperance is an incredible place if you haven't been there, but that's an extra 480km. I used to be driven to Esperance every year for my entire childhood, cool place but the drive alone was a killer.

    Starting ~mid May, so by the time I reach Eyre highway it will be June, just in time to make use of prevailing tail winds. (and freezing cold weather once I make it to tasmania and fly over to new zealand.. shit)

    @Bigs, definitely right on that one, Busselton down to Augusta, inland to Bridgetown then down to Walpole, Denmark, Albany. Very scenic rides with gentle rolling hills. Awesome part of WA.

    Albany to Esperance wasn't too exciting, but the destination made it all worthwhile.
