So, I thought I’d resurrect this thread because:
a. I’m off work for a week and a bit after a workcover funded knee op and,
b. I might be calling on some of the generous offers of accommodation which were made earlier.
You might recall my knee was playing up after jumping off the back of my ute numerous times back in January whilst fighting a fire that was consuming a landcruiser and a power pole. After much faffing around from workcover and me having to threaten them with action from our association via the fire commissioner they finally sent me off to get the bloody thing sorted. It was probably less than an hour’s work for the surgeon: 2 small keyholes and knick off a bit of the meniscus that was split and inflaming the surrounding tissue. Only took one oxycodone this time, but still taking panadol several times a day. Am walking, but only short distances, but should be all good in a few weeks.
Decided to book the Tassie ferry today as I’m confident I’ll be able to ride in a week or so, so will be fine for the trip.
My cousin who lives in Sydney moved to Brisbane last weekend, so I’m not sure that I’ll be spending more than a few hours there, so no Blokey shed get together. Will message some of you gents shortly to see if dates etc work for everyone. Still have some modifications and maintenance to do to the bike and I’ll have to start packing the panniers soon to see what gets taken/left behind. Will be on the road/living out of the panniers for 7 weeks, getting a bit excited now!
