Trip Odometer: 14857km
Daily total: 511km
Today we met up with the Brisbane Black Dog riders at the end of their trip. One of the local shops put on a breakfast deal for all the riders. After a photo and briefing it was time to head out.
Not a lot of stops today. The first fuel stop was the Burke and Wills Roadhouse, about 200km’s. The decision was made to stop somewhere about halfway to stretch the legs and have a drink. We had a good break at the Roadhouse which became the lunch stop also.
More mile eating. Next fuel stop was Cloncurry. We also had a break about halfway.
Then a refuel at Cloncurry before the last 110kms into Mt Isa. One of the local police we met at Burke and Wills Roadhouse was heading back to Mount Isa, and we ran into them again at Cloncurry.
We arrived in Mt Isa nice and early. The owners of the campground got a fire going for us which is proving to be real nice in the cold central Australian nights, and where I am seated writing this.
Tomorrow is more mile eating, but we do have an engagement in Tennant Creek. We will also be meeting up with the Darwin Black Dog Riders.
