Morning and truck driver Rob appeared full of apologies for having disturbed our peace. His pollution control electronics were playing up and he would have to wait for the diesel mechanic to appear from Tamworth. 2 hours drive. We gave him a brew and a biscuit which went down well.
Usual breakfast routine, pack, farewell Rob the truckie and hit the road. Across the Liverpool Plains - always a great stretch of road - to Werris Creek and morning coffee break.
To Tamworth where Marco picks up some chain lubricant and a quick supermarket visit for lunch ingredients.
Up the Armidale road to Moombi Hill and lookout. Stopped here many times over the years. Always reminds me of the Zimbabwe Ruins. Great Zimbabwe
On to Uralla to camp $10 per person with hot showers.
Dinner at the top pub and early to bed. Another cold night in prospect. Tomorrow down to the coast!
