After being home for only 2 weeks it was time for another travel adventure and this time Jenny was coming along. The plan was to follow the River Murray to its source if it was even possible. We were travelling with our friends Chris and Sue. They had their camper trailer in tow and we had our Taj.
Today was to be a big travel day so that more time was spent looking for the source rather than spend too much time getting there.
The small convoy left Crafers just after 8am stopping only for fuel until Ouyen for lunch and of course their famous Vanilla Slice.
We were looking at getting at least to Wangaratta and evaluate whether to continue further when we got there. Well after 11 hours on the road, we only got as far as the Big4 Wangaratta North Cedars Holiday Park. It was still around 32C so a short walk out the back gate was the Vine Hotel. And as luck would have it, it was steak night. For $16.90 they had a steak with chips, veg and a choice of sauce. It was a good meal particularly after the long drive and washed down with a cold “Furphy” beer.
Tomorrow shouldn’t be as long a drive into the High Country.
