At the end of the Sugarloafers Chapter meeting at Carmilla recently, Wally asked if I can give a brief rundown on the places we have been since we last saw then on 19th September 2010. In reply I did give a brief summary only of those places where we stayed at least overnight or longer. I did not include towns which we merely passed through.
On reflection I thought our readers may like to know as well.
I also gives me a chance to show some photographs which I did not use in the original posts.
Since leaving and arriving back in Finch Hatton WWWGO has travelled 7,630 klms.
The Terios (perhaps I should start calling it the TOAD) has travelled 10,018 klms not including klms travelled behind WWWGO.
That seems to be a lot of klms for the Terios when most of the time I was at Traveston. However I would go to Noosa most days and that would be at least 100klms per day. Some days the klms were even greater. For example, we travelled from Traveston to the Gold Coast several times and that was in excess of 250 klms each way. At an average of 100 klms each day for three months that would be at least 9,000 so although the total klms looks high, the travel does support the high klms recorded.
