I spent a thoroughly enjoyable morning sitting in the passenger seat of the car, listening to jazz and winding balls from hanks of wool purchased from Jodie.
We hit a bit of a snag in Bourke. Only two petrol stations and only one sells gas and for some reason they would only sell gas if you held a star card??? Wouldn’t accept cash. The other petrol station only sold ULP & Diesel. Our car runs on gas and ULP. So there were quite a few tense moments wondering if we were going to make it to Cunnamulla. So you’ve probably guessed that we did make it cos youre reading this. There is no LPG available here in Cunnamulla either so Fred has had to purchase a 20L Gerry can of ULP to get us to Charleville tomorrow. Its been another beautiful sunny day, again great driving weather. After leaving Cobar a town which we were very impressed with we did see lots of goats on the side of the road, I don’t know if they are farmed or feral. I was reading about an eradication program in the Flinders Rangers of wild goats. We saw a dead wild pig on the road (and lots of kangaroo roadkill) but the main wild life to be seen were emu. I wish I could have got the camera out quicker as 3 ran beside the car. So far we have driven over 3000kms. Off to Charleville……….
