Gunning Narrandera Wagga

Crossed Sydney and on to Pheasants Nest for a night. Next night off the highway at Gunning. Woke to just 7deg. Not expecting that! And me with my summer weight bedding, brrr. A day later in Wagga it wouldn't get below 20 overnight.

Gunning is a great stop-over about 1km away from the noise of the Hume Hwy. A picturesque little town with old buildings and a small camp-site, down by the creek. If you are not early you will miss out but there's always space at the showgrounds.

Then Narrandera for 5 nights. Did some "farmer Brown" stuff with a tractor and slasher and caught up with friends and family. Lived in Narrandera for 7 years, 5 years ago. Met some nice people, made some good friends and am still paying rates on about 10 hectares there.

Wilks Park Wagga. It's decision time again: Barnawatha, Ballarat in Victoria or Hamley Bridge in South Australia? Hmm will use mathematics to solve this one. Respectively they are ~150km, ~500km or ~900km from Wagga. Looks like BlazeAid in Barnawatha wins out.

Yep cropped and recycled but still Gunning by the creek.
