Wednesday 17th December, Goondiwindi.

We have started our journey south to Melbourne, and what a different trip it is. We do not have the van with us and we are staying in cabins instead. Fuel consumption is nowhere near as high, and apart from carrying in a few bags for overnight we don’t have as much setting up and packing up as we would if we had the van. We have so far gotten to Goondiwindi, about 450K, and will stop overnight. We will be making 3 stops on the trip so we won’t be exceeding our mileage limits. Actually today and tomorrow will be longer than our normal limit, but it is not as bad not having the van on the back, and the last two days will be shorter distances when we will be a bit tired.
