It was a nice drive from Tamworth along the New England Highway and in contrast to our previous drives everything looked green and lush.
So this is the last part of the blog, thanks people who have been following it, and until our next trip, it's bye from us.

Change of plan folks. We decided that if we traveled via Tamworth & New England Highway, we could get home on Saturday. So we said let's go for it!
Here we are in Tamworth, it was quite hot when we arrived, we had lunch then went to the supermarket. When we came out it was pissing down, big thunderstorm. I realised I had left the hatch up on the van, so we jumped in the car and raced back to the caravan. Of course we were too late, so here we are trying to dry things out now that the rain has gone.
There will be no blog post for tomorrow as there will be no Internet. So the next and final post will be from home.
We had a 7:00am start and set off for Dubbo. Boy, that double shot ice coffee is a life saver! A very hot day 38C again so it was a bit of a tedious drive, but we got to Dubbo well before lunch. We got set up then went into town to get supplies and were disappointed to find that the Aldi here didn't sell liquor. We have changed plans and are heading for Tamworth in the morning.

We left early again after a wild night of thunderstorms. The lightning started a fire near Wondonga West, which was burning out of control and threatening homes, but rain dampened it down. Very hot today and very strong winds so the trip was a bit demanding. No photos today, but we are set up in a nice caravan park in West Wyalong and have picked the most sheltered site in the park. Off to Dubbo tomorrow.

When we were set up we went and had lunch, then drove through to Albury and had a walk by the Murray River.
After dinner now (and a few drinks of course) and packed up readt to roll again in the morning.
