Hot showers and family history

Currently we’re in Wodonga, on the Victorian side of the Murray River. We always knew we’d stop here for a few days, as Kirstine went to school in Albury, and still has family here. To pass on through without catching up would have been sacrilege! Kirstine’s father was in the NSW Ambulance Service for decades, and passed away 15 years ago. We went to visit his resting place, and will be talking about his career as an emergency services worker as part of our documentary.

It is fabulous to have a powered site at the Showgrounds in Wodonga. Being able to run a heater in the camper to keep us warm is a real treat!

The Legend has been turning heads as we have driven through Albury & Wodonga. Today we spoke with two local TV news stations (Nine News Albury & Prime7), as well as speaking at Bandiana Primary School about Mental Health Assistance Dogs. We were so warmly received and the kids simply loved Luna! Some of the kids asked some super intelligent questions, and we were impressed at the level of understanding and curiosity they showed.

A new sponsor, Camper Trailers Albury Wodonga, hand delivered a Smarttek6 gas hot water system to us today. Knowing we can have hot showers even when free camping is truly exhilarating. The kids think they are going to have hot showers, but they’ve been told they’ll be bush-bathing so Mum can enjoy the hot water!! As excited as we are, it was a bit of a relief to know that they don’t want pictures of our first shower with the system!!

Once our interviews are available online, we’ll link them here. Don’t go looking for pictures of us having a shower with the Smarttek6 gas hot water system provided by Camper Trailers Albury Wodonga – there won’t be any 😛
