It's been a while since I last rode this ride, so thought middle of winter would be the perfect time to revisit it! I left home at 0230, and as boring as it is to some (many), decided to shoot up the Hume for the start. The idea was to avoid roos, and I didn't see any on the Hume, but a small heard of Dear woke me up near the Nagambi turn off! Thankfully none moved onto the road as I went past. First stop from here was Glenrowan for fuel and food. Then onto Albury where I turned off towards Tallangatta. There was heavy fog on the approach down into Mitta Mitta. It had been raining quite a bit intermittently all morning, so with the fog as well, I was expecting the Omeo hwy to be a wet ride too. It actually wasn't too bad, also only passing one car and having to emergency stop to avoid one wallaby. I was about to learn why... This was just the start of it. A bit further along, there was about 2 inches of snow on the road and ice everywhere else! Had to deploy the out riggers (legs) on a few corners to slide through. But, once on the other side it was glorious weather, and still not a car in sight. Happy days. Next stop was my favourite place to rest along this road, Anglers Rest camp ground. I stopped had a bite to eat and put my feet up to enjoy the serenity for 30 mins. The return home was done on the back roads through Maffra etc, then onto The Old Sale rd to home, home by 1430. All up, around 914kms for the day. So, the Mitta Mitta 1000 in winter... Only for the b̶r̶a̶v̶e̶?̶ ̶T̶h̶e̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶f̶e̶s̶s̶i̶o̶n̶a̶l̶?̶ The stupid!
