Mirrool - Gooloogong
Overcast still no wind, warm, nice. Dumped and brought beer and stuff at Grenfell before washing the road grime of Dora because of road repairs at Gooloogong. Met Alan, retired NSW cop, my neighbour for tonight. A few beers at the pub then roast veggies and salmon for dinner, nice. Watched the NRL on the box, boring, bulldogs and dragons, who cares!
BGL 7.1 - 78.1kg. Not so many times that I need to get up in the night lately, good.
Lots of rain overnight forecast for all day as well. I'm staying here, power and warmth for a small donation, will move on tomorrow. Spent a quiet day listening to the radio and reading my book. Rugby tonight Australia vs Scotland, yeh!
Gooloogong - Carcoar Dam.
Rain stopped overnight. Stopped at Canowindra on the way to Carcoar Dam to do some provisioning and get a coffee. Its turned windy and overcast big time and its going to be cold tonight.
Carcoar Dam - Richmond
Cold overnight fog and mist in the morning. The drive from Lithgow to Richmond was spectacular if not just a bit scary at times dropping from 1100m down to 120m through the Blue Mountains, nice. Stopping at the Richmond Club, nice. $4 to join as a member then $10/n for a powered site plus complimentary drinks at the club for a new member, nice. The weather here in Richmond has been excellent, clear sky no breeze, loving it. Took the bike for a ride down towards Windsor 8km. Two beers at the club then Chinese takeaway for dinner, not bad.
Another nice day on the way. Laundry and then bike ride around town and the river. Rode 10km along the river looking for somewhere to have a picnic lunch but found no access. So went home and had lunch sitting in the sun with Dora. Did food shopping and got ready to escape tomorrow. Went to the club for happy hour and used my last free drink voucher, I like that! $4 to join the club and 3 free drink vouchers worth about $4 each. Dinner at the club then home and read my current book.
Richmond - Wallabadah
Fog and cold overnight but will be a nice day. Fueled up and headed of about 10am. Stopped at Grey Gums for lunch, a good spot to camp if you got here late in the arvo but that's not me so on on. Arrived at Wallabadah about 4.30pm. ~340km that's enough. Made and cooked a pizza and had an early night.
Wallabadah - Tenterfield
Very cold overnight and in the morning. Slow to get away, drove about 100km then had a shower and morning tea. Had lunch late at Glen Innis and refuelled Dora then stopped at a rest stop just short of Tenterfield shortly after 4pm, ~350km that will do for today. Home? to Maroochydore tomorrow.
Have to make sure I'm somewhere with good TV reception come the paralympic. My sister Mary's daughter Bridie. Captain - Go Girl!
