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


For 22November 2001


Report by Haydn and Nan

Up the Tamar - Launceston and Beyond.

Probably the least driving day on our tour, but plenty to do. Up one side of the Tamar River and back provided us with short drives, food, wineries, more food, strawberry farm, strawberry wine, more food, car swapping, the Swiss Village, more food, more wineries with, eventually, more food and wine back at the motel.

As for Launceston. It's a much larger city than we expected. There is probably more to do there than Hobart with parks, historic sites etc set in a very hilly setting with lush green surroundings.

Launceston has a strange ritual within the city. Each late afternoon in the centre of the business district, the rev head brigade test the surface tension of the road surface and pavers using, we believe, a special type of diff modification that allows singe wheel spinning for an entire city block. Geoff believed the problem was in the road surface rather than the diff and proof of this theory was confirmed in a practical demonstration.
