Somehow i think the guys would be immune to life on the road by now.

Even on the current Oz tour, they will spend some quality time in the Tarago

For example, today, they'll travel to Newcastle from Sydney (about 200kms).
Then tomorrow, from Newcastle to Shellharbour (about 340kms), virtually
driving past Mingara enroute, where they then have to travel back up to on
Sunday from Shellharbour (about 240kms). Then there's the long Sawtell to
Twin Towns leg at the end of the tour.

Sorry to hear the news about the Euro tour. Hopefully, it will be replaced
by a bigger (& better planned) tour next year.
