Day 3 — Blackwater to Barcaldine – 502 Kms

Breakfast at Blackwater North State School with Variety presenting Sensory Equipment for the special needs kids at the school.

Filled up the Smelly spare petrol tank with 30 Ltrs as there were no fuel stops after the 137 Km mark.

Had to put my newly acquired St Marys leagues club jersey over my arm to stop me getting burnt. Spectacular vistas on the way to Barcaldine.

Stopped for lunch at the 353 km mark. Party stop down the road with team photos so we had to stop. Kiwi girls Brigit and Bec were there serving Bimbagen wines so I had to indulge while Clarkie drove the second half of today’s route.

Lots of dust, sand and a lot of “woahs” with close calls! Starting to see the Roos crossing the road at their own risk as it is closing on dusk. Further along so much roadkill 😦 heading towards the Bashbusters party stop 20 Kms out of Barcaldine. Outback theme tonight — preparing for it in the car torso dancing to Stars On 45!!!

Sitting in Railway Hotel having a pint. Meet the owner Pauline – lovely lovely lady …. About to have shower to get ready for outback night and we have time to get ready !! Amazing !!

Until tomorrow, we will have one or two pints for you!!!
