We left home last Thursday...leaving the cold behind us and headed north....up the Newell past Seymour and Nagambie .. crossing the Murray River into New South Wales and stopping at Tocumwal for some morning tea. I'd packed some things so we didn't have to find a cafe. BUT, our thermos failed us. I poured the coffee and it was stone cold. Not sure if it was the thermos or the fact we'd left it in the boot of the car. It was probably 2 degrees when we left home. No wonder it had gone cold.
After a coffee, we headed towards Jerilderie, past Neranderah and Grong Grong ...then to Forbes and Parkes. The countryside was beautiful, just like the day. It was cold but clear and sunny....for a while.
We didn't really care where we ended that first day. We were making good time, but the heavy rain made the decision for us. Dubbo it was.
