    Still some turns to be had in Vic!

    Short Youtube Vid:


    Little brother and I hustled up Bungalow Spur to Federation Hut on Friday night, just in time to beat the midnight rain.

    Saturday didn't leave the hut until about midday to get some water ... from the rain tank ...

    Eventually left the hut around 3pm as the forecast was calling for 'partly cloudy' instead of 'scattered thunderstorms' for a few hours in the late arvo.

    Lo and behold the weather gods prevailed and the skies cleared. 10m visibility no more! Sunday it rained all day.

    Good weekend out. Slush puppies for days.
