It is 444km from home to the Warrumbungle National Park. What a neat number, eh?!
444 was easily divided into halves and quarters - when we reached those distances in real-life, Vaughan moved "Elmer" along the corresponding string markers.
The original idea was here where there are some free printable cars to colour and print. I thought it made more sense to have our car though, so printed a photo of Elmer and cut that out. I did like the idea using a fully loaded Elmer with attached trailer but decided that would take up too much space on the string!
