Adam and Jess hosted their housewarming on Saturday, the coldest day since September 4 this year. It was raining and the wind was gusting at up to 70km/h. We had a fun time, though, and trust that Dumas Street is thoroughly warmed now.
Ash and I took our moto's through farmland north of Canberra on Saturday afternoon, over great stretches of gravel. Our route is shown below. The most significant gravel section is between Cavan and the Murrumbidge River crossing.
Interestingly, farmers frequently deter drivers from crossing their land by posting "private property - keep out" and "no through road" signs. However their gates are wide open because they recognise that an easement on their property is active. We used easements to cross farmland to Cavan en route to Wee Jasper. We made it through despite signage giving contradictory advice. From Cavan, we utilized a more conventional route to return to Canberra.
