Ben arrived on the Spirit of Tasmania on Sunday 23 Jan. The plan was to head east to St Helens however he's currently camped in Exeter waiting for his motorbike to be repaired. It was parked outside a shop and knocked over by a 4WD, damaging the handlebar and headlight as well as scratching the tank and exhaust. The 4WD driver didn't stop. This is within one day of arriving! A mechanic in Legana will repair the bike for him. In the meantime it's still rideable but the throttle isn't working properly.
The towns are north of Launceston in the Tamar River valley.
