Exec Summary

Much concern in the group about the big climbs today

Mel and Jack took the car to miss the climbs

Blackburn Hill was a killer. Greater than 10%

Siding Springs Observatory climb was longer with a small 20% section but I found easier. Some others disagreed!

Overall 700+m climbing in 17km

Siding Springs observatory tour was really interesting

Lunch at Emu farm (I had emu sausages!)

Very quick 20km to Tooweenah as I drafted Geoff

Stayed in cabins but the group was split across 2 sites

Dinner in Tooraweenah pub

Pretty tough day but good!!
