It's been ~15 weeks since the St Patricks Day fires in March and when the camp was originally set up. Dribs and drabs of assessable fences are still being done, in between showers of rain, but the end is nigh. The total to date, of fences rebuilt, is nearing 300km.
Some farmers are saying there is no way we will be able to get on their paddocks now, or in the next few months. So the camp, here at Terang, will start closing at the end of this month.
It's hard not to look at the roadmap and start planning the trip north, route, stopovers, towns not visited before, and maybe some silo art along the way. Ah, the anticipation of a road trip: nearly as good as the real thing...
If you live in Terang serious shopping is done in Warrnambool and the place is not without street art.
