Re mattresses... I've tried self inflating, 2" foam (spent half an hour tryinig different densities at the shop) and have ended up with a blow up job... cheaper, more comfy thant bed at home and I blow it up with an el cheapo pump via a cigarette lighter runnig directly off my battery and in easy but out of sight spot under seat. Once the matress is pumped up I hook the phone charger into the lighter... definitely not 70's style, but I ain't young anymore either.

thinking about the mobile phone... I did my first long trip (from Adelaide to Sydney via Canberra) at 19 solo. Didn't make a phone call til I hit Sydney to let mum and dad know I was ok... We'd be away on the bikes for a long weekend and not even think of making a call... what is with us today hey! I do refuse to answer my phone while on the bike though! so I suppose that is something!

At the Bombala ride planning session....again....John and I and his mate......it was decided that we will leave around 10am on Friday the 18th. Stopping for the night at the Orbost pub. I reckon since it is only 350km, we might leave a bit later if that helps anyone sign up to go along. Then cruise on in to Bombala Saturday morning to catch up with the NSW group and setup at the fair grounds. Returning Sunday afternoon-ish.
