Day 250 | camped at Bookingarra Creek: it's the middle of not much
108 km | Heading west total: 11,435 km
The map showed I could pick up water at Whim Creek.
I cranked in at 2 30 pm to find the only establishment there was a pub and it was
opening in half an hour. Good timing.
Chatted to a couple of NZers who had driven from Dampier for something to do on their day off: they were fitting new winches to a tug there.
Checked out a massive cage of colourful parrots.
Noted that this was the first place where I had seen air conditioners in the (huge) portaloos out the back.
Downed a couple of Carlton Mids: not too alcoholic and has a decent amount of flavour, my beer of choice out here. One certainly wasn’t sufficient.
Loaded up with water for tonight.
A couple of Japanese guys wanted a photo with me: they had driven the 700 km from Broome this morning. Gee, that had taken me 9 days.
It’s amazing how much you can fit into a bit over an hour.
