A couple of rest days in South Gundagai

For the last couple of days, I’ve been giving myself a bit of a break in South Gundagai. There really isn’t much here. It’s more of a truck stop than anything else.

However, I did venture out, for a short while, today, just to have a wander about. I also took a few photos.

South Gundagai – not much here

Within five minutes walking distance, of the motel that I’m staying in, are remains of the old Tumut branch line, which used to run from Cootamundra, through Gundagai, and on to Tumut. A further line, the Kunama branch line, continued on to Kunama. The Tumut branch was closed in the early 80s, from memory – during a time when the NSW Government, of the day, were making a lot of cut backs. Though, I do vaguely recall that the Tumut line was closed due to weather damage – it probably cost way too much to rebuild the line, compared to how much it was used.

Tomorrow, I’m back on the bike again. I will be heading to Wagga Wagga.

Proudly supporting Fight MND

A Thousand Miles proudly supports Fight MND. MND stands for Motor Neurone Disease. It is also known as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

It is a progressive disease which attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal chord. This ultimately leads to signals not reaching your muscles (which will eventually waste away). It can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink, breathe, and so on. It is a silent killer. THERE IS NO CURE.
