Dunolly to Avoca
Dunolly to Avoca = 38km
Cummulative total = 1329km
Departed Dunolly about 8.30am. Not a bad place. had the most grass and the best shade of any campground so far. The only negative being the bore water which many campgrounds up this way have. At least it had rainwater tanks for drinking.
Had a headwind most of the way. Undulating terrain with rough but quiet roads. The flora was very scrubby and had been picked of any goodness by golddiggers. Many of which still resided at the Dunolly campground. Arrived here at Avoca about 11.30am. We last passed through 12 years ago in March. It was green back then. What a difference a drought makes. Janet is still suffering hayfever. As she has done ever since arriving in this great dry dust bowl of a country. It is worse this year. Maybe we should move to Tassie and support the Hawks.
