So, we made it.
Leongatha is actually better than Len remembered it to be.
There are a few more shops, and very friendly people.
What there is not, however, is accommodation.
The new desalination plant is to be built near here (somewhere) and homes are nearly all full up.
We inspect two tomorrow. Here's hoping!
A certain Mr. Flower esq. wanted us to be over the magic 10 000km mark by the time we got here from Darwin.
The stats are (NOT counting from Melbourne to Leongatha).
1904.88 litres of diesel (I am so sorry, Planet Earth!)
$2585.00 fuel cost
Average of 19.22 liters per 100km (that is soooo bad, but a very heavy pulling load)
9856km to Melbourne in total.
If we add on the KM from where we were in Melbourne when we last filled to now, we add another 145.1 kms
Hooray, I hear Mr. Flower esq. exclaim.
Hooray, we exclaim.
The rest probably say nothing much at all and go and make a nice hot cup of tea.
Now, we have been busy, and we have already secured a post box, so you can post donations to the 'Pay for the diesel' fund.
This is the new address for us all.
L. J. S. J. Clark (Whomever it may be you want to post to)
P.O. Box 93
Now, get writing!
Until next time (or you visit us here)
