I was too busy gossiping and didn’t get any dumplings. Sad.

So, vendors. All the usual big names people have hard of, and all the usual little names no-one has heard of.

That’s enough charged. I feel like walking the 2.2km in the autumn afternoon.

@Anthony_Caruana I’ll bear that in mind. I may be being kidnapped by other people. There have been… indications.

So, my plan now is to recharge the phone, and then head to the National Convention Centre for welcome drinks.

@scott_thewspot No @firstdogonmoon is from Melbourne. @jonkudelka is from Tasmania. It’s all very confusing.

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

@ajhill_alan Plenty of. Overhead racks, racks at the end of the car, or you can check it in.

via TweetDeck in reply to ajhill_alan

@scott_thewspot Oh no, I mean in the SEKRIT Canberra apartment I’ve commandeered, not where @firstdogonmoon may be. If he’s even real.

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

@ajhill_alan Not too bad at all. It’s comfortable (I was in first class, 1.1m seat pitch), there’s food and drink. I’m in economy returning.

via TweetDeck in reply to ajhill_alan

@ajhill_alan Roughly 4h 15m. give or take, though we were early today.

via TweetDeck in reply to ajhill_alan

The whisky situation isn’t as dire as I’d been led to believe, but the @firstdogonmoon calendar hasn’t been updated for 2016.

@juhasaarinen They’re not the same thing. SEKRIT is MOAR SPESHUL than “secret”.

@bryceroney @markparton Thank you, gentlemen. I’ll be here until Friday.

@ElishaPearce Gosh. Is that an M48 or an M60? My guess is the former.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ElishaPearce

We’ve just been told we’re arriving at Canberra station in 10 mins. We’re running 12 mins ahead of schedule.

via TweetDeck

I was wondering why some of the passengers were getting so eager to leave, but I’d forgotten about Queanbeyan.

via TweetDeck

Just 30 minutes remain until I’m in Canberra.

Your memory is correct. That’s HQJOC that we just passed. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headquart… twitter.com/druey/status/7…

@BXGD It is, yes. He’s chatting wth the 2yo and 3yo kids just ahead of him, and is clearly going to enjoy the four-hour journey.

@BXGD As I realised after a but, he seems to have mild intellectual disability. He’s determined to be able to travel alone. Doing well, too.

@NC_Robinson The more I think about it, it’s a sweet story, He’s proud to be travelling alone. He’s enjoying chatting with little kids.

@christopherneal Obviously I will miss you and will shed a tear. Briefly.

via TweetDeck in reply to christopherneal

@christopherneal Indeed. Though I’m going first class on this leg, so wine is more appropriate. Will I see you in Canberra?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to christopherneal

It’s OK, everyone, there’s beer on the train.

@christopherneal It just caught fire when I was there one day. And a week or two later, Town Hall station just, you know, caught fire.
