Great trip. That is an impressive sight, that boat on the trailer. Lots of tyres on that one.

Hi Everyone. Lawrie I'm really enjoying your sharing. Very nice frames you are sending with the reports. You are doing tough stuff and good on you! Thank you for bringing this Yank from the Chesapeake Bay along for the dusting.

You didn't ask, but about the goodest way to get a video to us is to put it on YouTube and send the link. It's free to put something up (they get views, some creators earn about what we used to get picking up pop bottles) some people already have a Google account which is the same folks as YouTube for login.

I think I got it right about where the caravan was sitting.

Could you give us a little perspective, how far away was the parking, and how far away is that horizon?

Jeff, caravan was parked about 3 klms away, as for the horizon, I would think 20 or 40 klms away,
I have the good fortune to meet up with the local mechanic come mail man, and will go out with him on the mail and freight run tomorrow, he will pick me up at 6-30 and get back late in the arfo, delivering to some of the largest and remote properties,
One of the other benefits of traveling in the old ford,lots of people talk to you and this is the result of one conversation, a friend owned this large station until 3 yrs back s.o I will get to visit it tomorrow,when my friend owned it he told me there were those funny engines with all the nuts and spark plugs on them laying every where so I’m taking the camera.
Country hospitality is alive and well out here,dinner at the pub last night ,rib fill steak and salad with chips, nearly filled the plate and separate bowl of salad ,as cheap as,
Free ice creams after and also today I got an ice cream from the pub, no on3 there so I left $$ on the counter,later they came and gave me May $$ back as the ice creams were free also

Well, I have had the best day today, I went out with the mailman ,he picked me up at 6-30 am, we did approx 300ks ,and delivered to the stations along the way.nearly all on dirt roads,funny to be in the passenger seat and 120 on the dirt, but realised that he was out here twice a week.so sure knew where the sharp culverts and rough spots were.
There is a quiz in one of these pics, some different things,see what you can find.
The river is the mighty Barcoo, an important river system out here,
You can see the dingo fence,designed to keep dingoes and wild dogs out.and the mailman and mail,box.
We went from Yaraka out the back roads to Jundah and back via farm roads and tracks.
I may stay another day here tomorrow as it is sooo very relaxing
Lawrie
