    Hello Carrot and Coffee dog I wasn’t sure how else I could contact you. Once you start getting closer to Yass NSW the Yass Tribune news paper would like to feature you and coffee dog. Karan Gabriel is the contact and number 02 6226 1622. I will keep checking your tracker and do my best to keep them up to date!

    Best regards,

    Danielle and Tristan

    Hey Carrot, I drove past you in Castlemaine yesterday and thought “wow, that bike looks heavy” then read the Castlemaine Mail today and found out what you are doing. Good on you, my Mum has just been diagnosed with MS it is is an oportune time to donate. Also I believe we went to school together in Castlemaine, am I right?
    Best of luck, what you are doing is amazing and your doggy is gorgeous!

    Please pass our (Balingup) Noggerup spiritual respect to our beloved departed friend Joska who left here,and ended up over there, doing his thing.
    I am sure his personal impact and artistic endeavour left its mark there as well.
    Balingup was Joska’s true spiritual home and over here in the West we still mourn his loss.
    He also had a colourful character for a dog, for many years.Sonny(Sunny??)
    Always had to have the last bark.Bloody infatuated with stick retrieval.
    (And chasing skirt.
    Dogs ARE like their owners.( Brings a whole new slant to ‘leg humping,eh?)

    Any hoo,when you guys drop back over we will elaborate on this man,his dog his life and his art.
    Good fortune to you both….

    Take care.
    Cheers from Noggers.

    Hi Carrot and Coffee, Hope you remember me and my husband (Rob) from Bunbury DHP. Coffee Dog will definitely remember Boomerang. We are now in Albury Wodonga – after an interesting trip around WA. We have pulled up stumps and stopping here for a while. If you get to this area – you have a free bed and meal.

    Hi all, this is Michelle, on behalf of Carrot, who is unable to write to you on the blog but can read your comments. As dictated by Carrot:
    Am currently in NSW, travelling north from the lovely Holbrook, up the Hume Hwy towards Canberra. Hospitality in Victoria proved to be as warm as in the West. But as time is slipping by and we hope to be in Darling Harbour, Sydney before Christmas, we’ve decided to get a move on. We’re hoping to be in Canberra by early next week. Coffee will be devestated at the end of the trip, she’s so accustomed to being spoilt, cuddled, kissed (and fed!!!!!!) by those we meet. As always, the truckies on the Hume continue to be a pleasure to share the road with. We’re so little and they’re so big, we really appreciate their consideration as they pass. Anyway, hopefully, we’ll have nice weather for the rest of the trip and NSW and ACT is as supportive as the rest of Australia…..
