Destination Mt Isa

It has been one thousand five hundred and twenty one hrs since we left for Mt Isa. We stuffed the car full of clothes, camping gear, entertainment and presents, it was very stuffy and finally we hauled ourselves in until we were all packed in like a tin of sardines. We scrambled over The Great Divideing Range, took a detor round Glen Innes, went through Dundee, passed Deepwater, Bolivia, Bungulla stopped at Tenterfield for tea. Then back on the road! we drove through Jennings, Wallangarra, Wyberba, Lyra, Ballandean, Glen Aplin, Severnlea, Applethorpe, Thulimbah, Cottonvale, Dalveen, Braeside, Warwick, Glengallan, Allora, Hodgsonvale until finally we reached Toowoomba, where we stopped for two days and nights. Mum and Dad went to a Wedding, while our host and us went to parks. The next day we packed up, we then traveled on through Daldy, Chinchilla, Miles, Roma, Mitchell, Mungallala, we stopped at Tambo for the night. Ate breakfast in the park and used the park's sprinkler system as a dishwasher, on to Blackall, Barcaldine, chicken for lunch at Longreach; passed Winton, Cloncurry and finlly exhausted we stopped at 11pm at a yellow house with a three shade sails and two annoying dogs, on the corner of two avenues in Mt Isa. Where we were greeted by our uncle and his girlfriend, with pancakes and hot chocolate.

Gimli! Did you know that I have a 10 year old. She is nowhere near as eloquent as you are, but I think you would have a lot of fun together. Maybe we will need to come visit sometime so you can chat in person!
