So today was a transitional day and I spent most of it in a car on the M31. I began my day in Albury with a nice breakfast with my Airbnb host Brian. I briefly met his wife Sally the night before but she had already left for work by the time I woke.
Sadly there was not too much to report from today. The drive, although a bit long (close to 6 hours) was pleasant. The last 1.5 hours was definitely the best as i traveled the Great Ocean Road from Geelong to Sugarloaf (my destination for the evening). Unfortunately I arrived in the area after dark so I did not get the fantastic views that this road offers; however, because it was night and there are very few idiots (seriously) who travel this crazy, winding road after dark I pretty much had the road to myself. So it was time for Stephen to “play”.
Being from the mountains and having grown up with crazy, winding roads I LOVE to drive them. Of course the only small potential downside was the 300′ cliffs the plunge straight into the Southern Ocean…but that’s all part of the challenge. 🙂 This drive reminded a lot of driving Hwy. 1 in Northern California.
Anyway, long story short I arrived at my room around 10 PM safe and sound.
