We were very pleased with the success of our first night as touring campers. Set-up and pack-up were both achieved quickly and easily.
(As usual the ensuite presented the most challenge)!
Nick's alarm went off at 6:00am and most of us started working soon after. Vaughan stayed in bed - till we began packing up his bed around him! He dressed and then sat in the car but the rest of us continued to work steadily. Although a bus and camper-trailer left the caravan park before us, we were ready to leave by 8:30am - and had eaten an unhurried breakfast, a step the other travellers seemed to have missed.
We still had petrol but Nick thought it would only be enough to reach Bourke - just. There was a service station beside the caravan park and we refuelled, feeling happier to be travelling 160km with both tanks full. (On the way out of town we passed a sign advising no fuel was available for 159km)!
