Day 2: Left Parramatta early at around 6 am as we had a booking for the Meerkat encounter at Mogo Zoo. Made fairly good time as we beat most of the traffic. As recommended by allypally we detoured off for a beautiful drive through to Stanwell Tops had some amazing views.
Then headed over the sea bridge and made our way down to Mogo Zoo getting there with 3/4 of an hour to spare before the Wifer and kid did the Meekat encounter. (I was the official photographer
) We all thought the Meerkats were awesome, they got to feed them. They even put a few grubs in their hair so the Meerkats could pick them out. I am not sure how the little critters knew the difference between grubs and lice.
From there we caught a quick bite from Maccas in Batemen's Bay and headed in to Canberra via King''s Highway. That road certainly gave Baa Baaa a good working with lots of breaking and accelerating. Had to stop for about 10 mins as they are still doing road works from the landslide that happened a couple of weeks ago.
Made it in to Canberra by about 3:30 as a friend recommended getting in early to avoid traffic and dusk. Now about to head out for dinner with a friend we have not seen in 13 yrs.
Notes: Thought the Jeep seemed to rev pretty high sometimes when going down very steep hills. Especially if I didn't use the brakes and let the car do the work.
On rare occasions we can hear a noise that I can only describe as a soft tone. I think I have heard it when I release my foot of the accelerator to softly slow down. Noise lasts about 5 secs and then disappears. ???
Seems my dual climate control works fine.
Amazed at the fuel economy. Have down over 600kms and just under 1/2 a tank.
Windscreen is dirty... Time to find a car wash.
Still in love with my awesome ride.
Well time to head out for the night. Tomorrow the typical touristy things like War Memorial, track down Julia and point and laugh.
