I had a nice quick trip to Deniliquin, encountering less roadwork delays than any other trip to or from Deni. A big thanks to Jesse for the use of his car for the week, effectively saving me from what would have been a rather long, slow and trying experience of two buses and a train with Countrylink.
The trip statistics are as follows:
Trip started at 7:14am
Trip ended at 1:35pm
Break time: 69 minutes
Distance travelled: 525.7 KM
Time spent travelling: 5 hours 12 minutes
Average speed: 101.09615384615384615384615384615 KM/H
It looks like it’s probably going to be a warm and wet week with temperatures in the low 30s and high 20s, with “possible showers” every day this week except for tomorrow.
I happen to be missing two public holidays in one day tomorrow (Canberra Day and Victoria’s Labour Day), however I am somewhat excited to be, for the first time, in a location where I will be able to hear Neil Mitchell over terrestrial broadcast. As per every other time I’ve been in Deniliquin, Nick McCallum will be filling in for Neil tomorrow, however Neil should be on the air for the rest of the week. I’m looking forward to it.
Anyway, it occurs to me that I didn’t publish any of the photos from my first trip to Deni in mid-December, so I’ll publish a couple now and a few more as the week goes on. Also unlike my second trip in late-December, I have remembered to bring the camera with me this time, so a photo of a particular location requested by a particular reader will be shot and published this time.
