Day 12 - Renmark to Melbourne via Wentworth

How good was that heater? A little bit of a sleep in today. We had a big day but most of it would be done in the car. We'd managed to dry our gloves and most of our riding gear but there was still dampness when they were put on. Today would have us riding to Mildura to pick up the ute, out to Wentworth to see my Mum and have lunch with some family members before heading back to Melbourne and the end of the trip.

The ride from Renmark to Mildura was mostly uneventful. There was an awfully thick fog for about 40k's. It was freezing. Much colder than yesterday. And to top it off all the Grey Nomads were sitting on 40kph. Once safely past these mobile retirement homes we made good time.

A car seat has never felt so comfortable.

The drive back to Melbourne felt like it took forever. As comfortable as the car was, god it was boring. We got back to Melbourne, ate Kebabs and pizza, drank beer and unloaded all of my stuff. Trent had to head home early the next morning.

I had an amazing time on this trip and the company was great. I hope we get away again but I think we'll have less of a commute to the main attraction...

Thanks to everyone that helped with this trip and an even bigger thanks to Bec and Theresa for letting us chase this dream. Your time will come.
