Left home and destination Molong. Well we finally got on the road at 9.50 a.m. leaving the cold and rain at home.

We had a few minor mishaps for our first day, but shit happens. Not even 5 mins into our journey warwick was adjusting the brakes and due to that I spilt my coffee all over my ¾ white pants, then when we got to Mt Ousley warwick couldn’t remember shutting the garage door, so I rang glen and Leanne to check we expected Glen to give us a ribbing about that when we get home if he remembers.

Then just over an hour I had a hypo, so out came the lollies and soft drink. We stopped at Lithgow for lunch then stopped for fuel at Lithgow which was 165.9c and used 38 litres.

I have to admit I was boring company for Warwick due to weeks of lack of sleep and extremely hard work commitments I slept and apparently snored most of the day.

The first night we pulled up at Molong caravan park powered site $21 2.5 star 3paws star rating. Pretty basic and empty 2 permanents 1 cabin lights on and us. Oh forgot to mention at the garage Warwick noticed water pouring out of one of the van tanks, we are hoping its just the connection to the tank and we aren’t up for a new water tank.

We had Chinese for dinner pretty average but it was hot. Dogs are travelling well we need them to drink more; we decided not to set up the TV. So we are going to play computer games bloody cold heater will be on all night.
