Roma was to be my next stop but I went beyond and found a Free Camp at Bungeworgorai Creek. There were other campers there – about 8 I think, and I felt safe. Met some great folk, including a guy also driving a Toyota Coaster, who offered me some tips on the Coaster.
There was so much to learn about this type of living. I’d not known much about Free Camps. They are places with little or no facilities, where self-contained campers can stay for free. It is surprising to see so many people using them. Usually couples (grey nomads) but single folk do and often groups of young men.
Budgie What? I don’t know how to pronounce it, but that is the name of the area too.
In the morning, I repacked my van – always seem to be doing that, and set off for my next stop. I had my plans written down – where I was to stay etc, but in the end, I kept thinking about getting to Mt Isa as soon as possible for my SBS commitment so if I felt comfortable, I’d drive further.
