I left home around 3:30am and decided to head over to Weston to the Caltex which is usually the cheapest Caltex in town. There was also a nice fog which turned out to be much thicker than I expected.
I also forgot to take a 4c discount voucher with me, so ended up paying 98.9 cents per litre for 50.56 litres at a cost of $50.00
I left Caltex Weston at 3:55am and decided to take the slightly longer route via Albury (it adds about 10KM to the “medium distance” northern run via Narrandera, which is in turn about 40KM more than the short run via Lockhart and Urana) as I haven’t travelled to Deniliquin via this route before, so it would make for an interesting change…and I had plenty of time. Depending on how I feel when I leave the town, I may decide to take a longer route home.
I pulled over and stopped for a nap for about an hour and a half about twenty minutes before reaching Gundagai as I was overcome by a sudden tiredness. I stopped in Gundagai for breakfast for half an hour. These were my only breaks along the way.
I was also stopped for a random breath test in Holbrook, while I was listening to Jason Morrison interviewing Alan Jones about his operation to remove a brain tumour, on 2GB’s “Highlights of the Alan Jones Breakfast Show, with Jason Morrison” podcast.
I arrived at the hotel in Deniliquin at 11:50am which, once the breaks are removed, makes a total trip time of 5 hours and 55 minutes. The total travel distance was 564.2KM, and therefore the average speed of the journey was 95.357746478873239436619718309859 km/h.
