We left Longreach about 10.15 am after showers, feeding the Brolga family and discussing washing machines with a couple from Melbourne in a neighbouring van.
We stopped at Barcaldine for lunch – pies from the bakery in the van with coffee and apple slice. Then on to Blackall for a quick stop and on further to Stubby Bend free camp near Tambo for the night. We arrived about 3.30 pm.
We have been experiencing some issues with the caravan batteries apparently not accepting charge from the solar panel but everything seems OK tonight. We spent a gorgeous afternoon by the Barcoo River and later had pasta dinner in van.
