Syd’s Wild Dayz Sunday 1 January 2012

New Year’s day has been a scorcher with temperatures reaching 35 degrees.

We drove out to Ballarat, the site of the Sovereign Hill Gold Rush town and museum where Moose panned for gold but didn’t make his fortune and the whole team went underground into Red Hill mine.

After leaving Ballarat we drove cross country to Wallan where Graham Whelan, a Unit leader with Chris in 2006 at the Venture in New South Wales, generously hosted us for a fine Aussie barbecue along with some of their group’s Leaders and Venturers who are going off to the Venture by ferry tomorrow night.

On the way home Moose being ‘directionally challenged’ almost led to him performing a novel hook left turn on the way home!!
