December 31st Sunday 2017 (end of year)

What about next year, it still have more questions than answers, White Cliffs and land rights is still a big question and what will happen there. I have a court case in March this year, it has nothing to do with me other than a person told me some things before he passed away. I was about 1200km's away at the time.

We are thinking about a short trip to Queensland this year.

Carol and I take pictures almost every day of the year and we are looking at a new camera a Nikon P900 it is a very good and everyone that has one loves it.

The big job in White Cliffs is the kitchen this is the year it gets build at last.

December 29th Friday 2017

Rain off and on all day here in Wodonga we had some 4mm of rain last night (Albury had some 1mm over night) Wodonga needs it own Weather Station.

We went and seen Adrian in Lavington then home via Dean Street Albury, we played with the dog here for some time today.


Only a little dog "My name Wilfred"


Wilfred is a Great Dane and is part of the family, we are looking after him while Mum Dad and the kids are away he no trouble at all (so far)...


This is about 1/4 of Wilfred back yard if he ever get's lost he be sitting behind the trees.

So there three of us home Carol, Wilfred and I he walks around the back yard.

Not a lot more going on today, I am planning to go paint the shower in the caravan tomorrow morning at Adrian and Dianne place it will not take long there is nothing wrong with it but I paint it with water proof paint one a year.

Today is day 63 for this year trip and we have spent $635.00 on camping fees so far around $10 a night (the most we paid for a night is $34.50 at Broken Hill. Some places over on the coast are $105.00 a night for a camp site this time of year.

We leave here next Wednesday morning, the family will be back home on Tuesday.

December 27th Wednesday 2017

Today I went to Bunning's in Wodonga then I went to Adrian and Dianne place in Lavington to seal the roof of the caravan it was not leaking but I gave it a coat of Bondcreat and Paint just to make sure.

Back home in Wodonga I did some work on the yard just to keep fit, haha.

My sister Muffy in Albury pulled out a scrap book the other day she showed me some old paper cutting she has kept for many years.


If I had not seen the paper cutting from my days at Myer I would not have remembered the event 5th September 1985 I am just thinking that was 33yr's ago a long time... The trouble is I am 33yr's older now and I feel it.

For those that don't know in 1995 our home in Thurgoona NSW burn to the ground a total loss so I have had nothing about my pass, before 1995. So when Muffy showed me the book with all the paper cuttings I took some pictures.

 

Carmen (Carol daughter) and Damon are taking their camper and the kids up into the hills about 150km's from here for a week we are looking after the home and the big dog we will head off down south when they return in a week. We are house sitting till next Wednesday.

A big Hello to Muffy and thanks for showing me the book of paper cuttings.

Have fun tonight and tomorrow.

 

 

December 26th Tuesday 2017 Boxing Day

Went shopping and had a look at the "Boxing Day Sales" and to tell the truth I never seen much a lot of clothes but not to much in the way of special prices, maybe just getting old.

After lunch we went for a drive up Huon Hill that over looks Albury Wodonga but to many trees to the city we had a better view from the road on the way down.


Looking North today from Huon Hill Wodonga.


To the East looking over the Hume Weir you can see it at the foot of the hills.


Looking up the Kiewa Valley, note the tree in 2012 a big bush fire went over this hill and the trees are coming back at last.

Wanaaring is just north of White Cliffs

It is a sea change, of sorts.

There is just one problem: The nearest beach is about 1,000 kilometres away.

Welcome to Wanaaring, outback New South Wales — the tiny town with a big job for the right person.

"It's more of a tree change, or dust change to be honest," said Ben Strong, who owns the town's only shop with his wife, Margaret.

"There's nothing you couldn't sell in this shop, you're so far from everything else."

Mr Strong is not exaggerating. About 80 people call Wanaaring home, with a couple of hundred more spread out on properties in the area, which is known for cattle, sheep and goat farming.

It's almost Christmas "Have Fun" and don't work to hard, in fact don't work at all.

December 20th Wednesday 2017

Not a good day for Carol and I we drove the 130km's from Walla Walla to Wangaratta for the funeral of a good friend "Ken Burgess", I have know Wendy and Ken around ten years but for Carol and Wendy born on the same day and going to school together, they have been friends for life.

Ken ran a business A1 Tyre Power in Wangaratta for some years.

We just go back to Walla Walla and I decided to do Three Dots. The Mercedes Benz ran well sitting on 105kph all the way down and back.

Wangaratta last night lost power for some hours a wind storm hit the town, today we seen big old trees blowen out of the ground not one maybe around 50 trees on the main road. Even a truck was turned over on the main road.

Scott rang he was without power for five hours last night, not to be beaten Scott setup a 240v inverter running from his car battery he gets about 300w of power enough to run his lap top.

Talking about Scott he put up the White Flag today, we put a message on his phone he is booked out to Christmas and can take no more work at this time. Scott will work this year from boxing day to new years to clear his back log of work.

 

We pack up here tomorrow and move out early Friday morning we are planning Christmas with the grand kids this year on both side's of the border.

Time for a cup of coffee.

Hello to Robyn in White Cliffs. Take a look at the White Cliffs Website Click Here...

There would have been around 200 people there last night at the big church in town.

This was good in a hall nearby business and local family's setup their own Christmas Tree in the hall it was good to see.

 


The other side of the hall (no prize's ) just good clean fun by locals.


Carol went to the hair dresser at the Lavington Plaza this afternoon.

They are saying the hottest day this week will be tomorrow.

Well tomorrow another day we will be going to Wangaratta Wednesday just for the day.

Sure feeling the heat in Walla Walla today the weather man said it is 37c here as I write this our air conditioner in the caravan cannot handle the heat today. The temperature in the caravan right now is 30c it cannot handle the heat.

After Christmas we will head South towards Geelong, Colac area and hope it is a bit cooler.

Well we went into Wodonga today to pick up a few item's then back home to Walla, on the way back I missed a turn and got a bit lost for about ten minutes and ended up taking a back road back to Walla Walla.


It's been here around a hundred years "St Paul's College Walla Walla" it is a very big school and yesterday closed for Christmas break.

 


Tomorrow night we are going here for Carol's By Candle light on the lawn beside the church.

 


Around 5:30pm and it's hot and no one in the main street of Walla Walla...


New to Walla Walla a new phone tower in town this is about 300m from our caravan. I now get five bars on my phone we used to get one, a lot better.


This old home in town has a sign 1910 that's 107yrs old not great but still standing...

 

Went to the Walla Club last night and we had a great meal, cost $30.00 for two with soft drink and Ice Cream. Carol and I gave the ice cream a miss.

Hello to Sue and David in Gippsland you have a great Christmas.

 

 

 

December 15th Friday 2017

We got up around 7am to beat the heat of the day we then had some bad news a friend who lives in Wangaratta passed away last night Ken Burgess ran a tyre business for many years and has been sick for sometime.

We moved this morning from Wodonga to Walla Walla and setup camp, it was a slow job due to the heat of the day.


All setup tonight and the Mercedes Benz is parked under a tree to keep cool.


This is taken from the caravan, the Walla Walla swimming pool about 100m away I may give it a try if this weather keeps up.

Today was a moving day so you don't get much else done but the time you pull down a camp and setup a new one there's much of the day left.

 

We are off to the Walla Walla club for tea tonight.

Have fun this weekend....

 

 

December 14th Thursday 2017

Not as hot in Wodonga today as it was Yesterday. We went out and did the family thing this morning seeing some of the older folk on the family tree. Lunch was at lavington plaza and then back to the caravan in Wodonga at the Showgrounds.


I took some pictures inside the new Wodonga Woolworth's car park.


It is a very big Supermarket, as it seen from the outside.


Next stop was Sumsion Gardens in Wodonga it is a nice place to visit.


Lots of wildlife around the lake today.


Lot more wildlife in the area.

December 13th Wednesday 2017

We all know the word of the day "HOT" I seen it was 38c around here and 42c in White Cliffs I bet the pub did well with drinks over the bar.


How would you like this to happen you have a new $199,000 motor home and you come from the Gold Coast in Queensland, you get in to drive to the next camp and the brake pedal is on the floor, yep no brake's that's not good so they send over a low loader and take it away for repairs. That's what you call a bad day.


Went and seen Aub and Beryl today Aub showed me this old cement mixer and we talked about how old it was we think about 1955 but not sure (Aub is now 88yrs) he brought it new so I write to Villiers in USA and ask... Hope they send us an answer.


We went to the Albury Cemetery to see Mum and Dad and the Albury have done a lot of work on the site and added a lot of cement.


The Wodonga Showgrounds tonight we are the last sight at the end of the line.


There's a heap of lawn out here, not sure what they do with it.


The other end of the camp site there is only one empty site left tonight.

What else, we went shopping and had lunch at the Lavington Plaza today. And when I got there I forgot what I was going to buy, old age I say.

Adrian, hope you feel better today it must have been all that hot air in Canberra last weekend, get better.

Next stop was a trip to Troy and Kylie and my first swim in the new pool, it was great you only have one thing left to do?, move the pool to our place in White Cliffs. What "NO" gee that's no fair...

The air conditioner in the caravan is working overtime today it's holding around 25 to 27c with the heat outside.

 

Keep Cool...

 

 

 

December 12th Tuesday 2017

I was doing a Google Search of my name "Duncombe" and this popped up below:

Land sale.…

32 Duncombe Ave Officer Vic 3809

So if your in the family and want to be the Duncombe in Duncombe Ave here is you change. Bit of fun, the land is up "for sale".

 

We were up about 7am, this morning I went to Damon and Carmen place in Wodonga and mowed the lawns out front, it was good to do something other than sit around and clean the caravan and the car.


Not bad after a quick clean up, I need to run around and cut the edges around the lawn, that's another day soon.

I found a water hose leaking on the Mercedes Benz it was just a fine slow drip, I fixed it the afternoon and all good now.

White Cliffs just piped 40c today so it be a good day to stay in your underground home or make a trip to the local pub and have a cold drink.

In Wodonga we had a cool 32c, we sure gave the air conditioner in the caravan a good work out today.

It is going to be really hot tomorrow and I was just thinking Kylie and Troy it be a good day to test out your new pool.

All good we hope to take some more pictures as we drive around tomorrow.

 

You all have fun...

 

 

December 11th Monday 2017

The first job today was a visit to Damon and Carmen (Carol daughter) place in Wodonga where we did our washing, we put it on the line to dry and we went to Albury for a drive then back to Wodonga.

We all know the rocket at Albury sitting on top of the hill above the main street of Albury. My father was a helper when they did repairs in the 1950s ...

December 10th Sunday 2017

Well today started last night on sunset a Kangaroo loose in the streets of Wodonga on the road, they moved it into the camp where we are staying it took three police car and seven police to remove on Kangaroo.

Like Kylie said it was a boxing kangaroo and the police wanted him for fighting in the street, he jumped across a fence to freedom.


Just think if they did get the kangaroo it have to go to a "Kangaroo Court"...

We went Christmas Shopping today and it is now all done yep the tree at Muffy is full under the tree.

It was life in the dark last night after 11pm we ran out of Solar Power we had to pull out the camp light, it worked all ok.

We could see today was going to be no better with the dark sky so we packed up at Huon and went to the Tallangatta Show Grounds where we have power and water (hot water) for $15 a night...


The sky here around 4pm today in Tallangatta, we were going to get no Solar Power with a sky like that.

Our camp at the Tallangatta Show Grounds for two nights water on tap and power. It is a nice clean park but I have been told there is a big Christmas Party on Friday Night with over a 100 people and a band and if we want sleep go somewhere else.

December 5th Tuesday 2017

Guess what where we are it's raining, we have spent the last seven  months hoping for rain now after six days of rain in a row all I can say is STOP we have had enough.

And it's raining in Huon again right now. We did a little better today with Solar Power 80% full battery yesterday it was only 60%.. The only problem is lack of sun light.


I finally took a really good picture not perfect but a good one.

 

Ho ho ho, Carol wrapped the Christmas Gifts last night and today we dropped a bag at Damon and Carmen place in Wodonga and a bag at Muffy and Susan place in Albury for Christmas the shopping almost there.

Seen Muffy and Susan today at their place in Albury that was good…


Our basic camp setup at Huon on the Hume Weir.

 

Scott was busy working at Telstra Business in Wangaratta today.

We are still at a free camp in Huon right on the Hume Weir. Will try stop to next Monday morning then move into a caravan park in Wodonga with power and laundry need to refresh the bedding and have a big clean up.


Where we are staying on the Hume Weir...

Caravan good no leaks now…

Adrian we did a good job with the water proofing.

 

Hello to Susan…

 

 

 

December 4th Monday 2017

Sorry almost no solar power left and no sun to make Solar Power.

We moved about 10km down the road this morning still on the Hume Weir we moved from what is called Ludlows Free Camp to Huon Free camp today. Ludlows had a 24hr limit and we stayed 3 Days some we moved this morning to Huon, there is no limit here that we know of.

So here we are, with no power and no sun so we have almost no Solar.

All good tonight and it is raining so no more Solar power today, Caravan good no leak at all today.

So that's it for tonight I upload while we power.

Susan hope you are feeling better, Joyce I hear you are going shopping today...

Kylie your pool about to overflow, no stopping now.

I do some pictures tomorrow.

Have a good night.

 

 

 

December 3rd Sunday 2017

Another bad night weather wise we had some 30mm of rain over night and thanks to Adrian we had no leaks and we both had a good night sleep.

Bill sent me some picture of Mooloolaba Queensland for Three Dots below...


Love the salt water Mooloolaba on the water edge.


Good size Whale boat sitting there, looks like a nice place to visit.


Thanks for the pictures Bill I go for a walk there one day.

 

Then this morning Sunday Carol and I went to the Wodonga Market at the old railway station.


Part of the Wodonga Market.


Looks like all the family are out at the market.

 


One thing I have to say about Wodonga CBD it sure looks the part.

 


I think it is a old Hudson car a good old Yank Tank.


Wodonga Market at the old Railway Station the area is looking good.

The rain stopped at Sun up this morning and so far today no rain, We are staying at Ludlows tonight and moving off in the morning to a site just up the road, more tomorrow.

You all have a good day, I going for a walk to the water of the Hume Dam...

More tomorrow.

 

 

December 2nd Saturday 2017

What can I say we had rain all night it went on and on and tonight it's no better non-stop rain.

 

Then about 10am we had our first leak the edge of the roof no problem all night then a problem.

 

So I pack up and went in to Adrian place in Lavington and we went to a lot of trouble to seal up the roof. That took around five hours work for both of us.

 

Tonight we are back out at Ludlows on the Hume Weir and so far all good no leaks at all.

 

And that was our day but the best weather in Victoria and New South Wales was in White Cliffs a wonderful 21c and fine…

 

Not a great day I am still on Solar Power I hope tomorrow we get some Sun we sure got nothing in the way of Solar today.

 

Buy the way this is a very wet start to summer. I try do some pictures tomorrow.
