I’ve just loaded TomTom GPS on my iPhone and am tinkering with it. It doesn’t take long to realize this sweet spoken new passenger is going to be a distraction. “After 15 kms keep left to Moogee”. Waahhh! It wasn’t her mispronunciation that was disturbing, it was because Mudgee is north-east and we want to head north-west to Narromine. Ignoring her demands we whizz past the exit while I tell her we are going via Orange to settle her down.
At Molong, we’re happily following her insistent voice “After 100 metres take a turn left towards Forbes.” Surely Forbes will take us south!
A minor argument erupts right now. Hubby stops the car, jumps out and commands in an angry tone as he slams the door “You sort it out”. (He’s actually off to buy lunch but likes the dramatic effect).
Stung into action I check what Google Maps has to say, via Cudal it suggests. I’m sure that’s a dirt road. So with a sigh I dig out the low-tech paper map and decide to go via Parkes.
I’m so pleased with the yellow canola fields I forget to complain about how flat the land is getting.
