About Blue Snoopy

Blue Snoopy is a 2018 Adria Altea 402PH Sports Caravan pulled by a 2012 Nissan Navara ST Dual Cab Ute.



4 August 2011 – Tamworth to Sydney NSW

It would be fair to say that we were eager to return home and we left the caravan park at 8:00am.  Traffic was relatively light and we were soon heading out of Tamworth through Goonoo Goonoo, “Have a Galah” (there must be somewhere with that name??) and finally Wallabadah where we stopped at the free camp site to bid another farewell to our friends.  This free camp is on the north western side of the town and looks excellent.  There is power available for a gold coin donation and the area is relatively flat.  We will remember this site for future trips.

We spent 30 minutes talking before heading south again.  “He” was concerned about crossing the range to the north of Murrurundi but that was accomplished without incident.  Much to our surprise, the fuel consumption dropped to a level we normally see when we are not towing (was this because we were going down the hill to Sydney or was it because we had a tail wind?)

We stopped at Maitland to visit friends and it was there we detached the car.  We had a quick stop for lunch on the eastern side of Maitland and refuelled both vehicles before entering the freeway.

“He” had a ball driving home as the Iveco was happy to be rid of the car and more than happy to travel at the prescribed speed limit.

The trip to Sydney seemed to take no time at all and we were soon stuck in afternoon Sydney traffic.  We were back in familiar territory.  It was good to be home!



“He” had considered returning to work early but developed a severe dose of the flu after arrriving home.  A decision was made to continue the holiday and return to work when expected.
