We made it out… Sunday morning 17 June didn’t see a sunrise in Orange.
It was a very ‘dreich’ Scottish-style atmosphere as we said our final goodbyes to the brave little Orange farewell cheer squad – thank you to Mary & Darell, Kris & Peter and Lesley for leaving your snug houses to see us off on the bus to Sydney at 6.00am
It was 25 years, 5 months and 6 days since I drove into town in our little red Astra with my girlfriend Anita (Gordon was in Scotland and arrived a week later). Everything we owned fitted into that car and now we have left with three suitcases and a couple of day packs.
We are ready for the next stage of our journey into the unknown…
