3rd Jun 2017 - 9th Jun 2017
Week 411 - Biloela

Apologies to our readers for missing our weekly blog last week.  We have been so busy in the organisation of the Highway Wanderers 23rd birthday bash at Monto, we barely had time to sleep.  Unfortunately our motorhome was in the workshop for repair most of the week, so we slept in Rhonda and Bill's annex with temperatures plummeting to 2 to 3 degrees and boy it was cold.

Our bus was having a new windscreen and a paint job at the front, plus new tyres, a rotation and a balance.  This added to the docket box which has crept slightly over $37 000 - this is our spend in the town of Monto for the week and is just a token of our appreciation of our welcome to the Monto townfolk.

This will be our last blog using Travelpod.  Next week Jo will reinvent our travels on another system called Wordpress.  So stay tuned to your computer, tablet or phone.  We will let you know how it all works and you can continue reading about our travels.

Our blog this week comes from Biloela Queensland Heritage Centre.  Our first night away from the birthday bash.

We would like to thank everyone that helped us achieve a memorable celebration.

We would also like to thank Travelpod for processing our weekly blogs.  We had 265 entries over 8 years, with 22 000 hits.  We posted 1629 photographs and have enjoyed every comment and reply.
