Maureen and Dale’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 24 Sep 2014

Location: Chinchilla Q.

MapWell have had trials and frustrating times with my computer modem but thanks to good old john and Telstra its all going okay again.
I certainly can recommend Telstra,s patient caring workers Thanks Telstra.
We have covered a lot of miles and have had a few days at Mitchell a dear little town with hot pools certainly recommended.
Its actually cold here hard to believe but true.
I have had a couple of nights hitting the red wine. We have spent our nights sitting by the roaring fire. A sweet man delivers wood off cuts from his sawmill for all the campers at no charge. Its appreciated thanks.Its great fun to cook your morning toast over the fire it seems to have a flavour all of its own.
Im worried about my dad having him ill puts a gloom over one and he is apparently not even knowing anyone anymore. Hes been a great dad and so active and supportive. He even taught me to drive ,supported our athletics and patiently watched me practise and perform ballet for years.
Nearly getting towards the east coast now and tomorrow we get to see our bestman and matron of honour from Dales and my wedding as they live over here. Dale rang Ron tonight and they are really looking forward to seeing us and of course we are looking forward to seeing them. Not too long before we see Denise and Jacko again as well we just love their bright company.
had a chat with Lisa yesterday shes got a full calendar at present but still remains bright and bubbly and nana also had a chat with Chanelle .Hope to see more of them in the coming year.
Most of the roads over here are a disgrace compared with W.A.Near the towns they improve but today we felt as if we had bumped and bumped all the way.
Met two lovely women ex New Zealanders each with their own motorhome travelling around Oz. One had a dog and the other lady on her own. One of them noticed a bubble on our caravan tyre - - LUCKY !!! so Dale changed the tyre and that was a calamity avoided thank goodness wasn't the lady clever !!!!! As a result Dale is getting new tyres for the van as he says hes never liked them !!
Im thrilled with Subis grand final win and thrilled with the Brownlow resut and Beau getting the Jim Steynes award ------ Well done.
Im sad to be missing Sharon and Steves wedding this weekend but sincerely wish them both all the very best xxxx
Must get to bed feel tired after that bumpy trip today xxx
