At Lightning Ridge we found a nice free camp at a rest area about 10klms from town. After setting up camp we drove in to town for a look see and found the publicbaths. I was able to have a swim in the very hot water but Lynn still had ulcers on his leg that weren't quite healed so he had to just watch everyone having a nice warm swim.

As we continued north we stopped at some wonderful places and met lots of wonderful people. Some places we only stopped for the night but many places we stayed for a least a few days. The following photos are a selection of the places we've been and the people we have met. some people we have met several times as we are often going in the same direction.
This wooden bridge over the Murrumbidgee was found on a short side trip on our way from Hay. We were glad to take a short break as we had been driving through clouds of locusts which were in plague proportions and on warmer days particularly about the middle of the day they swarmed and we had to slow down as they make a real mess of the car and van if they hit when you are doing over 80 kph.
Across the road from this lovely old pub is a freee camp area alongside a lovely park with picnic facilities. Here we met a couple who were staying in the camp spot as their son was one of the owners of the pub.
While we were in Forbes Lynn visited the Motor Car Museum owned by the Mc Feesters while I walked up into town to visit a quilting shop. The following photos are some of the cars that Lynn saw.
