    Invited to a birthday party at the Scottish Arms Hotel Bowral 20 March (they have Guinness on tap too) before Easter, we decided to go west and avoid the east coast wet stuff. West to Yass in heavy rain, turned right chasing clear skies. Got to Young with clearing skies and great coffee. Further north to Dubbo for the night, and the pub across the road has Guinness on tap. ALL GOOD SO FAR. Then on to Coonabarabran to catch up with an old home brewer friend.

    Such a nice town too. Some clever people there too. This is the local arts and craft shop.


    Then on to Warrumbungle National Park for 3 days of blue skies. Powered sites, flush toilets and lots to do.

    And a happy camper with Pete's home brew,

    Not mine but nearby. Friendly eh?

    Then onto Lightning Ridge for another 3 days. A totally unexpected find. No photo's but .........
    1. The thermal swimming pool
    2. John Murray art gallery (bought one)
    3. The pub serves Guinness (in bottles),

    AND
    4. The Italian restaurant on main street. One man out back, 6 or more staff out front, and food capital cities can't beat.

    Then off to Narrabri across the flat cotton country never sure when the mirage on the black top road ahead would firm up as a flood-way (few times wished I had a Schwimcro or Toyota Land-cruiser. Made it safe, great coffee and re-kitted before heading to Mt Kaputar NP for another 3 days

    One heavily laden T3 ready to take on the 20km single lane steeeep dirt road ahead. Note the blue skies.

    Comfy camp ground with hot showers and flush toilets.
