Hi everyone, we are at Nine Mile Camp ground just outside Gympie. We did a walking tour of the town yesterday which was caped off with a beautiful lunch. Then back to camp to get ready for our soup night. With the addition of some local friends the soup night went off great, with some magnificent soups and company.
Sunset Hotel. Oh dear, no beer
We drive out to Karumba on the Gulf of Carpentaria. This is to be our furthest point on this particular adventure. But the Sunset Hotel at the mouth of the Norman River has run out of beer, yep it truly is the pub with no beer. A gin and tonic just doesn’t quite cut it up here.
“Please bring your own carry bags as we are running out – no stock for a fortnight” says a Karumba shop sign. Like the pub with no beer, if you don’t get your ordering right when you’re this remote then you’re up the creek.
Devil Wheelers are going great guns.
Another great weekend away with some awesome weather. Things kicked off with an overnight stay at Campbell Town. Heading towards Triabunna the next morning via Lake Leake to Swansea and then south to Triabunna. We arrived at 11.00am and the free camp was already well patronised. Four 5th wheelers, a motorhome set up camp beside each other and within 20minutes three more caravans that weren’t with us arrived and the rea was almost full. It was a good thing we had left early.
Since starting the Devil Wheelers one of the best things to happen is meeting fellow travellers from the mainland stateswho find out about us by being members of the CMCA and finding out about our gathering via the Wanderer magazine
Thomas and Anne Baster from the “crocodile Wheelers” joined us for the weekend.
more later, when I have a bit more time
