Wed 6/7/05 Chris left home at 0730 with 5 bikes on ute & trailer & got to the Bourke caravan park at 2000. I left work at 1600, got lost twice on the way to Burgo’s, took half an hour to load all the contraband luggage (extra [small] crate, bucket, huuuuuge air bed, bbq plate, shower etc – most of which didn’t get used!). Burgo got us lost on the way to Burra, where we had to replace a trailer bearing. Got to Broken Hill at 0100 & caught up with Welly & bed at 0200. Up at 0600 & away, checked out the bike shop at Cobar & got to Longreach at 0100 (1500k’s for the day). Bed at 0200. Chris stopped near Winton at 2100.
