Day one - 2009 XMAS holiday

Melbourne to Jerilderie.
Day one started with getting up sleeping in to replenish our selves from the Christmas celebrations.
Having prepared the van as much we could possibly could we had a little work to do but we had the van on the road outside the house within an hour all hooked up and ready to go.

The frugal caravaner has so much planning to do before a trip with with christmas being yesterday there we were sent off with a large piece of ham and some Christmas turkey so there was plenty of filling for sandwiches.

So that we can avoid having to pay for those expensive coffees and that small pot of tea from the coffee shops that you pay $3.00 for that I am sure that costs all of .70 cents we made sure we had lots of Lan Choo tea on board and Moccona coffee for Simon.
We stopped for lunch at Nagambie in a caravan parking space in the middle of the town , The only thing that I would say is that I would wish people would read the signs that say caravan and trailer parking as I am sure to people reading this blog would understand is that people that do not have caravans or trailers should not use them.
Having bypassed Shepparton because we had no need to go there and it would avoid the driving further and therefore saving some money that is important to both of us on our travels.
We then stopped at a delightful little place that is a Wughnu this is between Shepparton and Numurkah I like stopping there. There is a little place that you can stop off for a cup of tea and a piece of fruit cake which is Simon`s favourite.
The journey to Tocumwal was good with there being little traffic on the road,we then headed onto Finely then finaly onto Jerilderie.

Jerelderie is a nice town with a history of Ned Kelly being here.
Staying at the Jerilderie Motel and Caravan Park we have found a lovely little well presented Caravan Park with very clean facilities and lush green drive through sites.
