Monday 13th December 2010 - Well, Nick turned out to be a gorgeous Italian stallion of a guy (and a very nice person too). We left Canberra on Monday morning and rode back along the M31 highway to Gundagai where we picked up a back road and started making our way across to Wagga Wagga. It was a beautiful ride through undulating hillsides and farmland. At one point the road was closed due to flooding so we were diverted god only knows where but miraculously, eventually made it back to the main highway and into Wagga.

We found a nice little campsite and set up camp. Nick had been bragging about the tiny amount of luggage he’d bought with him which he attributed to the fact that he’d bought a “houchie” instead of a tent. A houchie is basically a tarp with a poncho strung up above it. However, when the mosquitos started coming out it started to look like this might not be quite such a good idea. I suggested that he might like to share my tent instead, but he insisted on using the houchie. I then had a mild dose of hysterics when barely 5 minutes after we’d gone to bed, I heard him saying “Jill ...?”. So it turns out my one man tent, can actually take 2 people, although I must state, as Nick is a married man, accommodation was provided on a “lodgings only” basis.
