Coles Bay to Longford

Thursday 6 February 2014

Forecast for Longford today is 12 to 24 degrees with intermittent clouds.

Including our detour to Swansea to use the dump point, our trip today was 182 kms via the Lake Leake Road to Campbelltown. We were on the road by 9:45 am and arrived at Longford Riverside Caravan Park at about 12:30 pm where we booked in for 4 nights. We were allocated Site 56, which is one of several new sites added to the Park since our last visit. During the afternoon the park slowly filled up, no doubt all the others are like us and here for Festivale in Launceston this weekend.

After a late lunch we got out the satellite dish to ensure everything was working properly before we get to Myrtle Park next week where there is no TV and no 3G phone connection. Just as well as our VAST connection had expired and required updating. It is still not working properly so looks like a phone call to VAST will be required tomorrow morning. It is very frustrating that people who sign a declaration that they are regular travellers are messed about by Malcolm Turnbull's mob who have nothing better to do!

After re-registering with VAST we have 7 Central, IMPARJA, and 10 Central and nothing else! I know that the ABC and SBS are a bunch of left wing loonies, and Malcolm may well think that they should be shut down, but enough is enough! As Barnaby said the other night most intelligent people are able to filter out the bias on the ABC.

G'day Di and Dave.We are enjoying your comments as usual.Cortina and I are coming down to Tassie on our regular visit next month and I was wondering if you had ever been to the steam festival which is held at Sheffield and if so is it worth a visit.We have accommodation for 3 days not far away from Sheffield at the same time as the festival is on

G'day Ron, good to hear from you again. We've never been to the SteamFest at Sheffield, but I hear that it is pretty good. Lots of old steam stuff in Tassie. We won't be going as we generally spend the March long weekend plus the week after at Port Arthur. David & Di
