G’day Guys,

I was afraid this would happen.

In hind sight putting soft copies up has been a bad idea :oops: as the Google Map application seems to be re-arranging routes every time I open them via the hyperlinks.

As for Garmin – I’m ready to crush it :evil:

The Omeo loop route Google Map was plotted Anti-clockwise and should have opened up that way.

The Garmin .gdb file was plotted the same way but only as far as Falls creek, after that the yanks seem to get lost, trying to take us up a dirt road instead of the Bogong High Plains Road back to the Omeo Hwy.
I’m reasonably familiar with the Omeo Hwy.

I must defer to greater knowledge from Omeo to Sorrento...[Bulldog]..

Pete, the little 20K backtrack between Horrock’s Pass / Davo’s memorial and the Pitchi Ritchi Pass back up to Quorn is firstly for Fuel as Quorn is very small and I don’t think they would move much Premium fuel through their tanks and I don't want to take the chance of anyone getting a tankfull of suss fuel, and secondly to farewell the W.A. guys who are planning to peel out westward form that point.

I’ll be running all these routes past Pete, Steve & Helix on Sunday and again face to face with the group on Monday.

Hope this is alaying any concerns about the navigation.. :character-smurfpapa:

It’ll be alright on the night and we’re gonna have a ball....... :dance:
