David Petty is one of them.
Since the earliest TrailRider days David has been the media voice of Parks Victoria.
As Parks' Manager of Communications and Media he has been tireless in his attention to spreading the word about the TrailRider. The 2011 Creswick gig (photo above) was his baby - resulting in a half page in the Melbourne Age.
Time and time again at public TrailRider gatherings Ros and I have had the opportunity to delight in his company and infectious enthusiasm.
Finally, the daily commute from Ocean Grove to the centre of Melbourne got the better of him and his new job with media and community outreach for the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC). In his new job he will "inherit" two TrailRiders so we will certainly stay in touch.
