And We’re Off

The RAAF Boab Quarry in The King Leopold Ranges, a free camp with ample space for big rigs, caravans, motorhomes and campers alike. Its accessed along a well maintained gravel road approximately 6 kilometres from the Highway 1 turn off. We camped there in 2014.

We left home at 6.00am and headed down to Macca’s for our normal once a year  breakfast. There were only the two of us, so we had ordered and eaten breakfast by 6.20am so we hit the road. Pouring rain until Loch then it backed off to intermittent rain until Melbourne. We topped fuel up at Calder Service centre then headed up the Calder Highway. We stopped for morning tea at Lockwood free camp before heading to Sea Lake for lunch. We refuelled at Ouyen and made Lock 9 Free Camp at around 4.00pm, so we were all setup and having a glass of wine by 4.30pm! No co travellers to share the drink though.
