Theaussiechallenge Post # 102 Shepparton

Day 126 15 days to go. Distance today 110km total 11722km. It’s 8.15pm Saturday 10/2012 Shepparton. Oh my goodness indeedy!!!! Greg’s home is like a resort. It’s in a very exclusive area on the Kialla Lakes and just stunning. Mate wow!!!!! Crazy pampering being here and with all my heart thank you x I was met and warmly welcomed by his neighbors who showed me about and made me feel totally welcomed. I’ve been able to sort and clean the gear and am squeaky roses myself. What a treat!! I’m currently sitting on the floor in front of the wide screen TV with ‘doesn’t matter’ as background noise and happy as a piggy. We arrived at about 5pm this arv after a later start this morning not stirring until 8am. I loooove my new style of ‘no alarm’ wake up and it’s a great way to start the last of our aussiehcallenge days. Tomorrow Rube and I will be waving goodbye to Victoria and crossing into NSW along the Murray River. The area reads really beautiful so it should be a good ride about 130km up to Finley and onto a rest area about 8km north of there. The neighbors have invited me to Breaky so that’ll be a great way to start our day. The countryside was more delish today very similar to yesterday but crossing more waterways during the peddle. We were stopped soon out of Huntley by Elicia from Bendigo who was heading up for the Echuca show. She was so lovely and keen for a chat about our travels and stories. Ive given her our blog details and received a $5 donation
before we both got back into our days. Thankyou Elicia for stopping and for your donation. it was nice to meet you and I hope you enjoyed the E show. About 5km out of Shepparton I stopped at a Woollies to pick up ingredients for a TV dinner of nachos yuuuuuummmyyy!!! I found the Info centre in town and they showed me where to find Gregs so it all worked out nice and easy to get ourselves here safe and sound and all smiles. I got an email today from Helena who I met in Beijing for those who were following our tripping through China in March/April this year. It was so great to hear from you Helena, I still think about you and our Beijing time together so often. I hope you and the family are well and the Mandarin classes are still in full steam. Lucky students to have you as their teacher and inspiration. We have a new member to our traveling circus. Yesterday coming out of St Arnaud I spotted a little stuffed brown dog who has obviously been loved to the max but somehow ended up out the window and on the roadside. He’s got one ear missing and been through lots of adventures with bits of fur and stitching missing. But little BD man (Brown Dog) has had a wash now this arv and is good to go in his next adventure with us nutters. It’s nice to have him on board and he’s sitting on the front penniers with his one ear blowing in the breeze. Cool dude and Rube and I like him allot. Time for Nachos. Cash donations $2576.20. Talk soon x

If you could dream up the most wildest adventure imaginable what would it be? Between jobs and craving new experience, I decided to indulge the challenge. This is what I conjoured with a promise to come home safe and smiling. I hope you enjoy the 1080 days of stories as much as I will sharing them. "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
