Wednesday 1st April - Coonabarabran to Armidale

Happy birthday dad. You would have been 86 today. Certainly taken to early in life.

9.3 last night and back upto 28.0 during the day.

Nearly another 300km to go today, but with each passing one we are closer to home. It now appears that we will not be required to self-isolate as we are Queendslanders returning home. Go figure! With what is currently happening with this virus I would have thought that everyone should be in isolation.

So, we stared on the Oxley Highway and then onto the New England Highway. This one we will travel north on most of the way home. Not much traffic on the road, so a pretty cruisy drive. Clive continued pulling over for trucks to pass which they really appreciated. Stopped for lunch just out of Tamworth at an RV stop, complete with dump point.

We didn't travel as far today arriving at the Armidale Tourist Park. We left at 10.30am and arrived at 3.30pm. Clive was told to just choose a site when he rang to confirm the booking as the manager would be back at 4.30pm and then to come and pay. At this park they have asked us to use our own onboard facilities, but we can use their power and water. No worries here as we'll empty poodle before we leave.
