Thursday 16th February 2017


I had a quiet day going through the trip itinerary, making some changes to the original, so we can catch up with friends north of Brisbane. It takes a while to find places to stay, then check the distances for that day, & what else  there is to do in the area.

Geoff was out early. Bertie was getting a service, luckily at the place he is “living” in at Monash, so we didn't have to take him anywhere.

The caravan service was almost called off by the caravan bloke. He rang last night to see if we were in a hurry to get the service done, and when I said that we were heading toward North Queensland on Tuesday he said it would be fine and that he would manage.

He was a chatty fellow, and came across as very experienced and thorough. He was happy for me to watch and learn as he worked, so I picked up a thing or two during the service.

In the evening Tony, one of Dad's cousins, rang. I had never spoken to him before, but we ended up chatting for well over an hour about a wide range of topics, but especially cricket. He sounded like a good bloke, but at 85 years old I don't know if I will actually get to meet him.
