I think I found the answer to Ollie’s hearing problems. 2 Parabolic dishes 60 metres apart – just whisper into them and no problem hearing. Amazing.
Kilometres so far – first week
Boyne Island to Rolleston 353K – 5 hours
Rolleston to Roma 227k – 21/2 hours
Roma to Lightning Ridge 437K – 63/4 hours (stop in St George and cattle prolonged the journey time)
Lightning Ridge to Warren 318K – 4hours
Total 1335K in a week
We found our new house on Lunatic Hill Lightening Ridge
miners hut lived in up to 1962
That fridge – still not right. Liz decides to look at (take apart) the 12 pin connector plug to the car. Well, well after all that servicing a lead to the 12v supply is disconnected. Could be the cause. Let you know when we know.
On leaving Lightning Ridge we happened upon Stanley – no idea how big he is but his beak is a VW Beetle bonnet!!!
Sad journey today – real drought. Then Warren NSW – greedy lot – they’ve had all the rain. Everywhere is green – still have to feel sorry for them – biggest day of the year last Saturday the annual race meeting had to be cancelled because of a waterlogged track – not just the rain but a burst pipe!!!! Feast or famine.
Took a few short walks and felt cool at this weir
Mr GP has been complaining – hasn’t been out with us for some days. Will take him next time.
travel to Cobar intending to sleep at free camp 60 K West Cobar. Fridge hasn’t worked. Return to Cobar. Auto electrician flummoxed – no wonder we are!
Cobar is a copper, and gold mining town
then reading with only a miriad of bird song to disturb us and Mr GP
what did we use those pliers for?
