I'm back

Ok, now order and justice will be restored to the Mountain Biking forum. I know it crumbled in the month I was apart from bikeforums.com, and rebuilding it to its former glory will take time, but take heart, I am here to help, once again.

Jon

Oh and just kidding, but I really am back from Australia now.

Haha, it was fantastic... we biked about 700mi in 2 1/2 wks, a lot of it along the Great Ocean Road, from Victoria into South Australia. The Australian women are particularly, um, nice as evidenced by the signatures on the back of my visa (customs didn't find it as hilarious as my friends did). But yeah, I'm writing up a travel log and getting all my pictures together, so when its up, y'all will know.

I live in little aussie. I would say they make up a 1/4 of the population in Whistler...and yes the women are...nice to say the least (very...very friendly too and liking the beer)

Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,
To that same old place that you laughed about.

Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around.

Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)

Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've hot him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.


To those of you old enough to get this

How dare you come down to Australia, drop by SA and don't even visit me

Hope you had fun and that trip along the great ocean road would have been amazing.
