Where is Bob?
Bob was last seen at the Melbourne Train Station, enroute to Apollo Bay, Victoria. It was traumatic abandoning him in cold, rain, and wind but his spirits were high and his “paniers” (containers on the side of the bike) were perfectly packed. He can explain the route deviations.
The morning news in Melbourne is about SEVERE wind warning, fallen power lines, trees falling on homes. Bob will explain the revamped route when he surfaces from the gales.
I’ll be on a plane for the next 15 hours and anxiously looking forward to his update!
