Packing the car today we have found we are fitting everything quite a bit better. There is alot of luggage but we have a great system going now and packing is over quite quickly. John and Peter hang around and give us some assistance each morning which is much appreciated. This is our first bush camp for this leg and the brand new riders are anxious as to how the camping thing will work. Collis and I filled up with over 100 litres of water this morning and feel this should be plenty, depending on how hot it gets during the day. The water at Timber Creek is great to drink but holds alot of calcium in the water, which will not always quench your thirst and can have the opposite effect at times. It has been suggested to the riders that they have some bottled spring water also which will help counteract this effect.
Dinner tonight was pesto pasta with vegetables and a small amount of tuna followed by bread and butter pudding. Huge amounts were made and everything was consumed. Unfortunately I had bought some long life cream at Timber Creek and I was so excited to find some but when we opened it, it had curdled and it was a couple of months out of date. Next time I will check before paying.
Really hot night tonight with only a minimal wind blowing. The caravaners quietened down early so we eventually fell off to sleep and had a very quiet night
