We are in "Mitchell" QldJune 10, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C
After leaving “Old Cork” we came through Longreach a few days ago, a lovely, lively, neat and clean town, very stockman, cowboy orientated. Then onto Charleville, which was a bigger but a much quieter and tired looking town than Longreach.
We spent two days out on the Ward River, catching up on some washing and Dave tried his hand at fishing, but nothing jumped on his line.
We got to try out the “Jackstrap”, a small winch for lifting the tyres when the tyre monitor started beeping, telling us we had a flat. It worked a treat and made the job much easier and safer.
So here we are in “Mitchell” at the Neil Turner Weir, a free camp 4K out of town. Its a brilliant free camp, although we are amongst about 100 others also camping here, but it is a huge area, so we don’t feel overcrowded. We will head into town sometime today for a look at the town named in honour of Dave. 😜😹Read more
