Had stopped at Gundagai for a fuel topup and started with a cup of coffee - a long black meant one shot of coffee and fill the rest with hot water - it was revolting. We looked at the future and saw complexes of Subway, KFC, Hungry Jacks etc. and decided to drive on.
Fortunately we turned off at Gunning and had a wonderful "Back to the future" experience.
It's a lovely old country town that has now been bypassed by the freeway and the Merino Cafe reflects all that is good about the past.
A lunch of lamb chops like they used to make them and a good cup of coffee - service was good too.
Next time I drive, I'll skip sutton Forest or Gundagai and return to Gunning.
