Homealone can smell Brisbane from here in Dalby, about 200 k west on the Darling Downs. We have stopped here for the night after travelling on from Cunnamulla and then St George. In Cunnamulla we relived our last great adventure in these parts when about 19 years ago daughters liballthego and gillallthego stayed with us in the hotel pictured. It seems a bit of work has been done on it since then, but it had a familiar look about it. Then, out along the road to St George the spot where we ran out of fuel all those years ago could not be identified. We tried hard to find it though!
Only a hop, step and jump tomorrow and we will be back in town after 91 days wandering around southern Australia. Its been a great trip. Homealone can’t wait to get back home though to clean out the van and get ready for the next adventure!
We have travelled nearly 18,000 km on this trip and have wound the van up 53 times, so far we have only wound it down 52 times. Which means there is something wrong! The stats should be the same otherwise we have some problems. After a bit of analysis Allthego realises we do need to wait till tomorrow morning when we wind it down for the last time! 53 times. So all is good.
The fridge has been cleaned out, the cellar is dry, the pantry emptied and the van set for the run into Brisbane. We should be there by lunch time……………….until next time………….
