14 – 15 June 2012
STAGE 1 Jindabyne to Curtin Springs  DAYS 3-4


We travelled along a road well travelled by us. A lot of road repairs along the way. It is shocking that there are so many cotton farmers now between Wagga and Balranald. Cotton littered the sides of the road.

Haven’t seen so much water along this part of the road for many, many years.

A few littles glitches discovered aong the way. Couldn’t lock the driver’s door, our radio would not send, the water in the tank was off - undrinkable.

We shared the driving and made good time to Adelaide. We overnighted at Managatang Traveller’s Rest Area. A rather noisy place as a train arrived during the night and kept shunting backwards and forwards forever. Surprisingly we felt that we had a good nights sleep, despite the noise, when we got up in the morning.

On reaching Adelaide our priority was to get the wiring fixed for the radio. This was done very promptly. Then onto the accordion shop to get a new accordion for hubby, the locksmith and Mac 1.

We soon caught up with family members. In the evening we stocked up at the Adelaide markets before dining at a favourite Chinese Restaurant close to the markets. We had an absolutely lovely evening catching up until late.
