MapOh No - the last day!!!

We enjoyed our stay with Polly and Dick in Gunnedah. The country is beautiful at present and cattle prices are very good but as Polly said they have waited 29 years for a year like this.

We helped with activities around the farm - tending horses, fixing fences and machinery and general rouse about stuff. They have 2 farms so plenty to do.

Next stop Tamworth. Our slackest day all holiday - 75km. The reason for our Tamworth stopover was to see Marianne Gaul. She is a retired colleague who now has MS. However, nothing will stop Marainne. She is involved with multiple groups and charity organisations and has commeced a PHD.

Whilst in Tamworth I also caught up with a colleague from the 80s in Sydney. Marianne had told me where she worked so I walked into her shop to say Hullo - I hadnt seen her for 25years. We headed to the Tamworth Hotel for a catch up and a good laugh.

Next stop Tenterfield for complete R and R before returning home. In fact that means golf every day trying to find some form.

Breakfast is over, time to get up, pack up and head down the range.
