We arrived at Trakka showrooms soon after opening time where they took Priscilla straight in for her repairs. The leaking window and mirror were fixed (mirror replaced with tinted perspex – more practical for our purposes) but the leak in the main hatch couldn’t be replicated. We left after lunch, after buying two Duvalays from them. A Duvalay is a fancy sleeping bag. It has two sheet ‘pockets’ once of which fits a memory foam base, and the top fits a doona, joined together at the base and along one side. We’ve read very good reviews of them and they are convenient and easy to make up.
From the Trakka Showrooms we took the motorway to bypass Sydney, heading towards Bowral. Around Bowral and Mossvale is very pretty, lush, rolling hills with lovely old homes on big properties with massive, manicured gardens – old money!
That evening we spent in the Wingello State Forest, a mature pine forest. We shared a massive area with 2 or 3 others – a quiet night, not disturbed by the many wombats here.
