THE RaTTAToT TOUR
(Ramsay's Terrific Tag-a-long Adventure Tour of Tasmania)


For 21November 2001


Report by Geoff and June

Left Bicheno at 9am, sky cloudy and overcast, roof up, destination Launceston via St Helens. Sue and Bob Tandy won quiz number two. Paul was seen leaving the motel car-park driving Syd's FUNCAR with Syd driving Paul's car.

We took the Elephant Pass route to St Helens where we stocked up for lunch followed by a stop at the Pyengana Cheese factory for tasting of their chilli and herb cheeses, just to name a few.

Then it was onto St Columba Falls, which are the highest falls in Tasmania at 90 metres. Bev and Des didn't make it to the falls as they had a starter motor problems, and so they went straight to Launceston for urgent repairs.

As we left the Falls, Syd suggested an ale or two down the road at :The Pub in the Paddock", this offer was taken up by the Gooch's, Breit's, Honer's and Tyson's. This convoy then had a driver change with Syd and Geoff swapping cars for the drive to Derby. Then from Derby to Scottsdale André drove Syd's car and Alan.A drove André's.

On the Derby stretch, Syd was confronted on a tight left-hander by a low laden with caterpillar on board. After applying the anchors and backing up, the truckie gave Syd and June a mouthful leaving them both with the impression he'd already encountered a Dato. After stopping in Derby, André denied upsetting the truckie but Michael stepped forward to take the credit.

The convoy proceeded on to Scottsdale for afternoon tea and a quick drive into Launceston over the mountain range and checked into the motel around 5pm.

The Cherry's made their own way to Launceston after a detour back to Cole Bay to walk to the lookout to see Wineglass Bay in the Freycinet National Park.
