Leaving Clarke Creek

It's all slowing down. Most of the jobs are overnighters where volunteers take their caravans on to the station and stay a few days. This involves long treks over dirt roads and sometimes 4x4. That's not for me and my MH. Been in the camp nearly 6 weeks and can feel the call of the open road.

It's been hard, with the camera, to do the expanse of these stations justice. It really is something that is best experienced first hand.

Excitement! Heading south to pick up the mail and all those online purchases that I've made and can't remember. First stop at the Raglan Tavern, a bit noisy with coal trains and trucks all night, but very friendly. Friday night is pizza night, nice.

The stats when I left:
There has been a total of 94 volunteers -equivalent days 1175
Properties Reg'd 21 -Started 15 -Completed 8
Fences cleared 134km -Rebuilt 121km
Meals served 2314

Cleared and/or rebuilt an estimated 17km of this on just one property.

Phone service. Sometimes in some unexpected places.
