That sounded good.

The next issue was where to go from Melbourne, assuming there were further flights in the same (or a similar) price bracket. 

Perth? One cheap fare left, and regular pricing for the return leg? Try another destination.

So how about Launceston? 

There and back for another $9.95 each? 

It looked like that was where we’re headed.

That explains why, on the last day of November we were heading south through torrential rain which, unsurprisingly to observers of Bowen’s rainfall patterns started precisely at Longford Creek.

We were bound for a rendezvous with the Better Five-Eighths of the Cox Combo, who had generously offered a spot to park the car and a lift from there to the airport.
