TUESDAY 26 JULY PUNGALINA
Turned the fridges on to cool down. Stocked the drinks fridge with cans of beer and pre-mixed spirits, and soft drinks.
Did a couple of runs between house and camp, ferrying supplies for the fridges.
I faxed the mail plane order to Tennant Creek, while I was up at the house. It was not all that much, mostly items that A wanted for the house.
I cleaned the showers and toilets. Swept out the dining tent and tidied it.
Baked a double batch of Anzac biscuits. Cooked a date loaf.
By now, there was not the same sense of tension about expected guests – we had proved to ourselves that we could do a good job with them.
John refuelled Truck – had done 342kms since last time.
