    I also second the comments on the recent Southern Tour, and a big thank you to Doug and co. for organising it. Real pity he could not make it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the tour blogs by Liz Hawthorne and John Reid & Louise Neal. Such great memories for all concerned. As some will know, our RV sub-group departed ways at Warrnambool to head further south, spending 2 nights on King Island before flying onto Devonport, Tasmania. We hired a car and drove coastal down to Hobart for 3 days with friends, then back to pick up the aircraft to fly across to Flinders Island for a night, then a big over-water leg to avoid East Sale airspace, nothing to see except the oil rigs, and Ninety Mile Beach was a welcome site. Skirted around Gabo Island before overnighting at the seaside town of Merimbula. The next day it was up the east coast past Nowra and Sydney Heads via Victor One at 500 feet. Overcast conditions and the odd shower reduced the picture-taking options, but the continuing tailwind saw us back home just after midday on 10th March. Thanks again to everyone involved !
