Maybe there was a problem with the space/time continuum

We had decided to spend this ANZAC weekend in the Kangaroo Valley, which is a couple of hours south-west of Sydney. We picked up our hire car (a Holden Commodore -aah! I am turning more and more Aussie!) as I didn't trust our wreck Xoe to make it without several phone calls to the NRMA. After an inordinate amount of time spent packing, we headed off to the M5 using the route plan that I had printed in a fit of organisation. Big mistake.

The first issue was that the instructions directed off the M5 only to rejoin a few miles down the track. The second issue was having navigated us to the middle of nowhere (I swear I heard duelling banjoes and a bloke saying "Squeal like a piggy"), the directions seemed to send us in completely the wrong direction. The end result was that the 2 hour planned trip took closer to 4 hours. On the positive side though, we did get to see a couple of wombats pottering along the roadside.

On arrival, I pulled out my camera to take the compulsory arrival pictures and I had left my main memory card stuck in the reader! Fortunately, for some unknown reason l had packed a spare. It was long past time for a drink...
