Kimba to Canberra: Day 23

Jugiong to Yass Saturday 13th April, 2019

We had a good night’s rest and left Jugiong at around 11 am. It is about 60 kms to Yass, which is to be our jumping off point for Canberra. We wanted to have at least one night on power before a week without to thoroughly barge up the batteries. It would have been nicer to have had two nights in Jugiong and one night in Yass. We are at the Showgrounds and didn’t actually find a level spot. We opted for a sideways tilt, rather than back to front, but may use the van to get around tomorrow and then find a different spot tomorrow night.

We had a walk into town, going to the Visitor Centre, then walked down the Main Street, through a park by the river, then back, visiting a church on the way. That doesn’t sound like much, but we are up a steep hill, and it was quite an effort. We are probably fitter than when we left home and I don’t feel overly tired out.

A fellow traveller took an interest in us on our way out on the walk. When we returned he and Stephen got chatting, we spoke about going to the National Folk Festival and it turns out that his son runs the Bushmans’ Camp there and he and his wife are on their way to help out. We have enjoyed going there in previous years for the food and entertainment. A small world.
