Hi All,
Now only 400 Klms to Darwin.
Barkly Tablelands was a great ride of over 500 Klms.
Great Lagoon at Camooweel with bird life every where.Had 2 nights in a hotel nearby.
Some of the cattle stations in this area are well over a million acres with there homestead some times more than a hundred klms from the road.
Bush camped for about 10 nights between Mnt Isa and Tennant Creek.
Find the transmission towers great places to camp.
We are averaging about 18 klms per hour on most days now.
Did 170 Klms over the past 2 days.
Great roast dinners at Barkly Station but as is the case in most road houses no groceries other than coke, chips and booze.
Tennant an eye opener on life.
Stayed at Banka Banka Station which is on 3 million acres.
Camp sites are getting harder to find the further north we go.
I do not know how many caravans we have seen but it is well into the thousands.
Thank you to the Moruya Weeks for making the effort to see us.
Now done about 8000 Klms and have done about 1.6 million revolutions of our legs. Knees are feeling well lubricated.
All is well with us and loving it. Seeing things which are real eye openers. What a great country we live in.

Peter and Barbara.
