Saturday 8th JuneHappy 60th birthday Denzil. We hope that you had a great day and everyone enjoyed the BBQ. Weather was 16 - 24 today. Over cast and showers and we're heading to Childers. In June of 2000, 15 back packers lost their lives when the hotel, which had been converted to a back packers hostel, had a deliberate fire lit. We had a good drive and the weather got a bit cooler in the afternoon. Clive said he was a lot more confident with the weight distribution hitch on, and so he should for the cost!! Childers is an old historic town and Clive went for a walk down the main street and took a load of photos. He also discovered an historical village but it was closed. He still managed to get photos, as you can walk around, just can't access any of the buildings. Cost is only $3.00 for adults when they are open. We are in a free camp tonight which is one street back from the main road. Only drawback is that you have to be fully self-contained, so no grid 240v. We'll be living off the two batteries under the bed and water in the tanks for the next few days. We're not sure how long the 'juice' will last in the batteries, so no TV tonight except for the news I watched while Clive went off to Mass. The church is only 2 minutes walk from where we are parked. There is a primary school next to the church that has 78 students enrolled. The van never came with an inverter so Clive bought one and fitted it in under the bed. We used this to heat our dinners in the microwave. Pizza for me and curry for Clive.
