camped at Jack's waterhole: and very appreciative too

Time to be a bit smug.

Nothing like seeing a locked gate and better if there is an accompanying No Camping sign. That keeps most people out except for those antisocial cyclists who are able to slide their bike under the fence.

Well, I did need some water and Jacks Waterhole turned out to be a cracker. This used to be a very popular camping site before a huge flood washed all the facilities away in the 2002 Wet Season. That’s the official explanation for the lockout.

Sometimes the 4WDers just have to miss out.
