WEDNESDAY 24 SEPTEMBER CLONCURRY TO LONGREACH 514kms
Today was John’s 63rd birthday and he spent it behind the wheel.
It was a very hot day of driving.
Refuelled at Winton – 96cpl. Don’t know why Cloncurry was so much cheaper.
Reached Longreach and called it quits.
Booked into the Gunnadoo Caravan Park and decided a rest day from driving was in order, so booked for two nights. $19.80 a night, after discount.
John had intended we should detour via Canberra on the way home, to see daughter, but they had headed off to Sri Lanka for a holiday, so we would head straight home. I admired their determination – an overseas jaunt with a six month old was a rather brave undertaking!
We had no special celebration of the birthday. John would, as usual, buy himself some new tool or machine when he was home, as his present.
