Report 10 April
This morning early again because we have a nice trip for more than 300 kilometers to Armidale.
Before we leave Dirk thinks that the right front tire is pretty worn, so he assembles a new one.
Ralf is also up early because he has to go back to Brisbane.
But before we say goodbye to Ralf, he teaches us how to make a hot dog in an empty milk carton.
Then we say goodbye to Ralf and leave.
After an hour’s drive we arrive in the town of Stanthorpe where we are met by Ian Smith in his Model T coupé.
He invites us for a cup of coffee at the local café.
On the wall are all names of visitors and Dirk puts our names there.
On the road it is not busy but there are occasionally very large trucks.
The road is sometimes pretty steep and we have to cross a very special mountain: the Bolivia hill. And we know that the mountains in Bolivia can be quite steep.
During a coffee break Dirk wants to check the oil of the gearbox.
Around four o’clock and well before it gets dark, we arrive at our motel in Armidale.
The second travel day in Australia has also gone smoothly.
Keep it like that!!
