Oct 28, 2013 - Sawtell

Up at sparrow fart this morning to organise towing the Sorento into the Kia man for the repairs. I was concerned because the fault was intermittent that no fault would be found until the warranty expires on the 31st. But they serviceman contacted me and said they had found 2 faults; a crack in the inter-cooler and the Bios in the EMC was “contaminated” and out of date and should have been upgraded at the 80,000 Km service, obviously not done but you can bet I paid for it. They went thru the service book and discovered that there was no...

The caravan park here puts on free orange juice, bacon and egg rolls and tea or coffee for everyone every Friday morning between 8.00am & 9.00am during the winter months. Well we did have to partake of that, didn't we? Then to Coffs Harbour for a walk along the groynes and marinas, town centre and environs.

I timed them and they were running 13 and a touch...

Jan 12, 2010 - Sawtell NSW

We made camp at Mullumbimby Leages Club and it was great to see some rural scenes that reminded me of home. The campground is actually the football field, and there was friendly game of touch footy going on when we arrived. Next stop was Sawtell, 8kms below Coffs Harbour. For those of you who have not seen northern NSW it is known as big river country and that is certainly true. Whilst perhaps not the length of the Murray at 2500kms, or the flow rates of the mighty Burdekin (recorded at nearly 30 Million litres per second in flood) this...
