Saturday 2nd November - Clermont to EmeraldOff to Emerald today. We leave about 10.30am and arrive at 12.30pm. 20.1 last night and upto 37.8 today. Another hot day, but pleasant driving as there are some clouds and this is filtering the sunlight. We scored a drive through site, so no reversing. Makes life so much easier at times. It became hot in the afternoon so I had the aircon on, while Clive was sitting outside and reading. We will go exploring tomorrow if the weather permits, although I don't think that they are forecasting rain. The drive today was much better as we are on the Gregory Highway and not as much bouncing around. Hardly any road trains or caravans today. The vans must have all headed south back home for their summer. A few B-doubles followed us, so we do what we normally do, contact them on channel 40 on the CB and either pull over where safe or let them know it is safe to overtake. The terrain today was a bit different, as against trees and more trees. Certainly agricultural country now, as paddocks of cut hay and baled hay waiting to be collected and moved. Emerald is certainly bigger than Clermont, with a Coles, Woolies and Big W from a quick google search.
