And back to Canberra

December 31st, 2008 at 11:04am

I’m heading back to Canberra this afternoon and should arrive at some stage tonight. At this stage I intend on taking the longer and more scenic route via Echuca and Albury, although that may change.

It may interest you to know that on Monday evening I decided to drive to Echuca and ended up buying petrol (at 111.9 cents per litre, three cents cheaper than in Deniliquin) while I was there. 57.63 litres of the stuff to be precise. It had been exactly 660KM since I had last filled the tank, and apart from a small amount of city or town based driving as I left Canberra, drove through towns and a small trip in Deniliquin, it was all highway driving.

57.63 litres to travel 660KM works out at 11.452368558042686100989068193649 kilometres per litre.

I will be topping up again before leaving Deniliquin, so it will be interesting to see if I am able to get back to Canberra on one tank of petrol if I take the longer route via Echuca and Albury which is about 663KM or 57.89 litres based on the above calculation. If the calculation is accurate, then I shouldn’t have any problems getting back to Canberra on a single tank of petrol.

And for those of you who are wondering, yes this does mean that I will be back on 1WAY FM’s breakfast show tomorrow morning.

    Watch those summer gnats as you approach the north side of Canberra.
    Use a bug swatter if necessary.

    I can’t stand gnats. I swat them at every opportunity I get, whilst singing the gnat-swatting song which goes –

    “We swatted ’em,
    We swatted ’em,
    Out the back, and in the shack”.

    “We swatted ’em,
    We swatted ’em …. “.

    Those ads drive me up the wall…at least you’re not painting me.

    (For the benefit of our non-Canberra readers, Glendenning Painters and Decorators have some of the most annoying ads on Canberra Radio…the comment above feature modified lyrics from one such advertisement.)

    Actually, that painting advert is verging on the edge of poor taste –

    “We painted ‘er,
    We painted ‘er,
    Down ‘er middle,
    Up ‘er back,
    Every hole and every crack”.

    Hi Samuel,

    Without encroaching on the realm of libellous comment too much,
    could you please share with us something of Deniliquin.

    I would be interested to read of your expectations/impressions/experiences/comments, concerning “all-things-Deni”.
    The good, the bad, the downright ugly & the beauty, of the place people & environment.

    And could you please give me the web address for 2QN?.
