Day 16 – Wyandra to Charleville

Up early and had nice hot springwater showersand after chatting with our neighbours Terry and Margaret, we headed off to Charleville. Rough road and lots of road kill on the way, but it was only 101 kms or so.

We arrived in Charleville and checked in at Baileys Bar Caravan Park. It is friendly and a bit higgledy piggledy and is jam packed but we were squeezed in next to the laundry. We could not even put out the awning. But we were in and enjoyed a lovely camp oven lamb dinner by the camp fire with a poet and a singer.

We met Chris and Alice here. Chris had worked with the Dept of Forestry and as a journalist with CMCA. He had suffered terrible burns at some stage and had a Venture 5th Wheeler which they had had especially fitted out to meet his needs. We also met up with a surprising number of people who we have previously met on the road – we all seem to be headed in the same direction.
