There’s a headline which proves that I should not be the director of tourism and marketing for the Deniliquin Council!
I was going to wait until about 9am to post this, but seeing as I just told John Kerr and half the country about it…I’ll be spending the week in Deniliquin, starting at some stage, probably around midday on Sunday the 14th of December, (unless I decide to leave Canberra on the Saturday instead…assuming that the hotel have a vacancy for another night) and working at 2QN and Classic Rock FM filling in for newsreader Graham Munson from Monday to Friday.
Google Maps thinks it will take between 6.5 and 7 hours to drive there, depending on whether I go through Albury or Narrandera, although it does tend to overestimate the travel time for such trips. That said, with a couple stops along the way, it could be very accurate.
It should be a good week, and I’m certainly looking forward to it. The only downside that I can see to this is that I will have to miss out on a Christmas party on that Sunday, and I won’t be in town to panel the final Open House show of the year on 1WAY FM. I won’t have to miss the show entirely though as Vision, another station who take the show, have a repeater in Deniliquin. I suppose that blogging could be problematic during that week depending on what Internet access I have…suddenly I’m pleased that my laptop has a standard modem built-in, and Internode offer ten hours of complimentary dialup access per month with their ADSL plans. Such access would feel like I was waiting for somebody to send me a copy of the Internet on floppy disks via Australia Post, but it would be better than nothing.
Anyway, as I said, it should be a good week. I’m excited about it.
