Cotton Tree

Back into my Cotton Tree routine.

This time of year, weather wise, can be unsettled with storm cells coming through in the afternoons. But it's usually possible to get out and about and stay active.

Kandanga - Tin Can Bay

Got an email toward the end of the day from my conveying solicitor in Narrandera: deposit receive, contract sent. Looks like I just sold the two blocks of land on the Leeton Rd.

Left Kandanga to arrive at Woolies in Gympie at about 830am. Not one person wearing a mask in the shopping centre but hey no complaint from me. Got some provisions and headed to Tin Can Bay for the night.

Booked into a Caravan Park in the centre of town, down by the marina. Power tonight to test the inverter/charger, fridge, and hot water system are working properly on 240v. Everything appears good.

A bit of wild weather overnight but a nice sunny day to follow, if a bit humid. Just cruisin' around town checking out the places I remember from back in 2012 when I stayed here for a couple of weeks. Tin Can Bay is a nice place to visit and probably a good place to retire to, if you are into fishing that is. Quiet at the moment but goes crazy-mad over the summer holidays and the bugs, like midges, are prolific. The buggers would feast on me so you won't seeing me here then.

Touring Again

Cotton Tree - Kandanga

The repairs are complete and the MH is ready to go. I won't bore you with the details but putting it simply, it was a big job. So now I'm able to tour again. And this trip is just for a few days to reacquaint myself with the MH, a shake-down, if you will. I'm looking forward to the borders being open again soon but till then, north is the only real option.

Bike on the back and away we go.

Just a short drive to Kandanga for tonight, 70km, stopping at the nice little free camp in town. It gives me time to set MH up and work out what's needed and where, then knock up some more kms tomorrow.
