We're On A Road To Mudgee

Exciting news.

In an awesome, yet potentially naïve and explosive move, New South Wales Tourism has approached Charlotte Dawson and yours truly, suggesting that we go on a road trip together this weekend.

Five days.

In a car.

Driving through the NSW countryside.

With a person I once described as an air hostess on an airline that serves chicken, fish and happy endings.

What could possibly go wrong?

I’ll tell you what will go completely and utterly right, though – our itinerary. We’ll be taking a hire car, a video camera, a stills camera, our laptops and a week’s supply of awesome, and visiting Oberon, Bathurst, Mudgee and Lithgow.

When asked if we had any special dietary requirements, my response was YES – WINE AND CHEESE, so we’ll be popping in at wineries, cheeseries, piggeries and also going on a truffle hunt with some doggeries.

Yes, we’ll be sending back updates and reports including video and photographs.
Yes, we’ll be blogging, Tweeting, and facebooking the trip.
Yes, we’ll be riding bikes at some no doubt hilarious point.
Yes, we’ll be fighting over which particular bad 80s song becomes our road trip anthem.

Do stay tuned. Do let us keep you posted. And of course, if I use the special code phrase ‘OH MY GOD SHE’S TRYING TO KILL ME’, do send help.

See you on the road!

When will you be in Mudgee? There are so many nice places to go for food and wine. Also so many beautiful places to stay... You will have a ball.

Go to Logan's wines and find out the story of the Hannah Rose. Bastard raised the bar for all of us.

I'm pretty sure Logan is on the itinerary, James! And I do love a good yarn. I'm sure that will become obvious.

Shady Ladies stuffed with cheese and wine on bikes. My mental image engine is going nuts.

It truly is the most exciting thing happening in Australia this weekend. Perhaps you can stop the boats with sarcasm alone? Jo for PM.x
