Warialda - 7 unplanned nights

On Monday the last day of March heading to Yetman when the noise from the A/C pump was really worrying me.  I sprayed it with CRC and then realized just how hot it was.  The clutch bearing was all but shot.  I turned around just north of Warialda and had the NRMA workshop have a look at it.  Not serviceable so they tried to source a new one with no luck.  So I took over and eventually brought one from Suburban Imports in Sydney.  Apost took till the following Monday to get it to Warialda and I fitted it and off we went again.  A lot less noise coming from the engine bay, nice.
Not much to see or do in Warialda

Stopped at Texas Monday night and Fassifern rest stop Tuesday then dumped at Ipswich and delivered Dora to Caravan Services early Wednesday morning.  Picked up a rental car and got home to Eight2 just after lunch.  Nice to be home.
Bugger me school holidays again, busy, people everywhere, now I know why I prefer to travel via minor roads and small towns in regional areas of Australia.
