    Claw couldn't find a room in Southern Cross so he went back to Moorine Rock.
    Then sorted his wet gear issues and yesterday he took off to catch me. He ended up doing 1150kms and pulled up at the Border last night. Meanwhile I was at Madura !

    All good today. We caught up and did 950 kms today. At Minnipa. About 300 kms from Pt Agutta.
    Maybe meeting two other riders up from Adelaide and probably be in Farina tomorrow night.
    We keep catching up to the low pressure system that we had riding out of Perth ! !

    We pulled up at Hawker. We have a room at the back of the pub.
    Bloody hope it’s dry by the time we get to Farina.
    We’ve had rain all the way from Perth.

    I took Claw to the little general store in Quorn.
    On a corner, with a bowser out the front and a small repair shop on the side.
    Real old school.
    Great little shop, seem to have everything you’d need. Even motorcycle size tyre levers.
    Back in 2016 I bought a set of Andy Strapz bags there.
    Claw wanted a couple of small cable ties, smaller than the ones I carry. The shop only had bulky packets.
    The little old lady just grabbed a few out of a pack she had in the back and gave them to him.
    Like I said, old school.
    The sort of people I am happy to support.

    Good turn up, rain stayed away, lots of bush chooks around. Country around Peterbourogh is about as barren as you could imagine.
    Waiting for a pizza for dinner at mildura & early start tomorrow for home
    Good weekend, thanks to beetle
