Buenos Dios from Sydney (No, we don't actually speak Spanish)

Hi all,

Loving the site, just blogged about it on sustainmyself.com. I am not too impressed with my wifes Subaru efficiency and I am sure I can get more from my Bike, so going to try a few of the suggestions on here to see how we go.

Thanks,

Christian

You better know it, mate. Buenos Dios means Good God. Buenos dias means good day.

Of course, I drove four hours from Bathurst, NSW to Lake Bathurst, with instructions to turn on Bridewood Road in Goulburn. I'd asked several Aussies along the way for instructions to Bridewood Road. Then I actually saw the road sign. It was spelled Braidwood Road.

Subies don't get great mileage with the drag of their AWD systems, but you've found the right place for all fuel economy discussions. Welcome.

Who's saying I didn't mean Good God?

Ohh, Bathurst to Braidwood Road eh? Sampling our tracks were you?

Yeah, while I like the Subie, she wasn't my choice and I'd likely go with a 2WD car next.

Thanks for the welcome!
