SUNDAY 28 SEPTEMBER CHARLEVILLE TO COBAR 615kms
Yet again, hot driving. The central drive shaft of the Defender seems to generate heat, and because there is not a great deal of leg room, it is a hot vehicle in which to travel. When it was really hot outside, the Truck battled to tow the van and run the air con, so we tended to rely on just having the windows down to generate a bit of passing breeze.
Refuelled at Cunnamulla -91cpl. Once in NSW, fuel would become more expensive, without the Qld State Government subsidy on diesel.
When we reached Bourke, John was wanting to continue on, so the stage became a really long one.
Went into the Cobar Caravan Park – $18.
We were pleasantly surprised at how attractive the caravan park was, and noted it for future travels.
After the long day, all we did was set up a minimal camp, leaving the rig hitched up. Tea, a bit of TV, and to bed.
