Narrandera and the Blocks

Still waiting on Royans to get the bin door for the motor home.

I have been spending time in Narrandera cleaning up the two blocks we purchased last year.  Each is about 5000 sq mtrs, one has a pond and both border the irrigation channel.  I have mowed it all and it really does look good.  Purchased a another 20' container now having two I can get in and out of them and use the tools etc, thats much better!

Brad (my son) has been transferred to Bateman's Bay for a month with work so I might go down and see him there just to get away from here for a bit.

I have decided to delay the motorhome repairs and tour a bit then return as Royans say Winnebago are somewhat slow and unresponsive and can't or won't make a commitment on delivery of the bin door.  That's common knowledge in the industry for Winnebago, and does not seem to worry them.

Coolamon and cold - Motor home repairs

Still in the Wagga area.

Whilst in Sydney in March I damaged the motorhome when a tourist van, wizz-banger, made me swerve to avoid collision and I hit a bollard.  Manage to reattach the bin door temporarily so she don't look so bad.  Have a repairer lined up here in Wagga, Royan's usually does truck repairs, so the motorhome should be no problem.  But will need a new bin door from Winnebago, that I think will slow things down.  She looks better than in the photo with the missing bin door back on.  It was not damage more than some paint, its the one in front of the missing one that will need replacing.

Still a few things to tidy up regarding Trish.  Spent the weekend in Coolamon CP and explored the town on foot.  A friendly town with a couple of pubs and a golf and bowls club.  Not much happening this weekend.

Good little caravan park and good rates $10/night/site with power and just one street away from the supermarket and main street.  Nice public pool next door, would be good in summer.  All this just ~60km north of Wagga.
Bloody Hell!!
