Shire of Bland


We are going to go south of the main route today, but we've gotta go through more wheat and sheep country first. It's wide, getting flatter and monotonous ... aptly named I think.

  1. Possibly an unfortunate name. I like the acknowledgement of "country".

  2. Ha!
    I remember seeing that sign!
    Is West Wyalong around there?
    I usually find something charming about most country towns but it was difficult with WW - it just didn't have a good feel.

  4. Hello. Now I discover you have 2 wonderful blogs. I will have to follow both. I think I will enjoy your road trip. My wife and I did a really good one in October - we spent 8 days retracing old Route 66 from Tulsa to Santa Fe. to see too many photos link to: http://tulsagentleman.blogspot.com/2009/10/route-66-roadtrip-tulsa-to-santa-fe.html

  5. That is so funky. Reminds me of certain parts of the Midwest, where the only thing you see is wheatfields for miles and miles.
