THURSDAY 16 SEPTEMBER NARRANDERA TO QUEANBEYAN 360kms
Today was a relatively shorter day. Yesterday, even John had conceded that over 800kms in one day would be a bit much, so we’d had two shorter stages.
Refuelled at Wagga – $1.10cpl.
We reached the Hume Highway south of Gundagai – easier driving. Again, familiar.
I had, as usual, packed a lunch for us, but at Yass, John decided he wanted to stop for something that appealed to him more. KFC! I do not like to eat chicken not cooked by me, and would have happily eaten my sandwich, but John was insistent that I have some chicken too. To demonstrate that it would not hurt me! He’d bought cajun spicy chicken, and chips. The chicken was seriously awful! We actually agreed about that! It resulted in rotten indigestion for me, through much of the night. John did not feel great, either. Served him right, but the only positive I could find was that it would be a long time before I got pressured to eat fast food chicken again.
We reached Canberra mid-afternoon.
Went into the Riverside Caravan Park at Queanbeyan, after navigating through the centre of Canberra. $20 a night.
After setting up, we walked up to the shopping centre for some oddments. It was good to get some walking into the legs again.
