After a night in Sydney we do our normal 7 hour train journey and 3 hours on a coach that takes us back to Inverell where our friends Greg and Jill live. Once again they have looked after Geoffrey for us. We spend several days with them and at the same time get Geoffrey serviced and prepare for another long journey.

On our first days travelling we set off north west and it's not long before you are travelling pretty much on your own. Our first night stop is at a place called Nindy Gully. It has free camping by a river with a pub just behind us. We both comment that this could turn out to be the best stopover we have on this tour.

Day 2 takes us further north. The 200km stretch from St. George to Mitchell has stunning outback scenery and the only time we have to slow down is to let a family of emus cross the road in front of us and once to photograph some cattle standing on the roadside. Oh, and again for Lynne to change as our 25 litre water carrier situated behind her seat had sprung a leak.

We stopped for lunch at a superb little outback town called Mitchell which had the typical town park with shaded seats and spotless toilets. Our night stop was at Morven recreation ground. Five dollars (£3). With great showers and toilets that can't be bad and a good mob of kangaroos thrown in to keep us entertained.
