Straight line fever

Sorry for blogging again so soon but it’s still a bit of a novelty. So today we must have picked the straightest roads in NSW. I know this is a well known phenomenon for travelers around Aus. I also know what we traversed today will likely pale into insignificance by the time we are back, but far out, how far can you drive without turning a corner? To make it even more fun, the vegetation, or rangelands type scrub, was so thick on either side of the road from Narromine to Bourke it was like driving in a tunnel.

The GPS was in fine form again today as well. When we got into Bourke we needed fuel, so endeavoured to solicit the nearest source of petroleum from the GPS ‘fuel’ function. No worries it said. Just proceed 137 km to Cobar (it may not have been Cobar but you catch my drift). Bourke it would seem has no food or lodgings or indeed anything other than ATMs, at least according to the technology.

Kidman caravan park is very nice. Although you’ll have to take my judgement with a grain of salt, it’s the third one I’ve stayed in.

And before I forget, Emma you’re the best. So good to pull in and just defrost one of those delicious pre-cooked dinners. You are also the Queen of organisations. A shame I thought not to have papadums with the tasty Rogan Josh. But even Amy new they were under the sink. Thanks for the telephone tip kiddo. Speaking of tips thanks also to Ewan for the tip on the GPS and dirt roads, and to Pete for which van park to choose in Bourke.

Finally I’m really looking forward to seeing Emma and the kids in Darwin. Oliver says the plane can fly as fast as it wants to get there becasue there is nowhere to hang the speed limit signs. How right you are young man.
