Wings of time ...

Petrol was around 20 cents cheaper per litre at Charleville than what we've been paying locally. 

We hadn't been able to fit our jerry cans into/onto Elmer for the trip but we made sure that both his tanks were filled to capacity (and topped up again before heading "home").

As an aside, Nick received a discount when paying for the fuel.  The friendly cashier applied a "senior discount"!  Understandably, I was hugely amused when reading the receipt - though less entertained when I was offered an application form for concession stamps at the Post Office!

Many years ago, somewhere in the Northern Territory, Erin had her photo taken beside a road train.  Back then she was not much higher than one of the wheels.  When she spotted this "proper" road train, we saw a compare/contrast photo opportunity for the family albums!
