Lobbed into Mount Isa to top up on supplies (the usual suspects – meat and grog) before going to have a look at the Underground hospital. Very interesting Museum associated with it, displaying all the instruments of torture used by surgeons (I’m glad we have general anaesthetic so we don’t see these things).
From there we headed to Cloncurry before turning North on the Burke development road. We pulled into a free camp at the Terry Smith Lookout Rest Area. Jenny and I then spent half an hour cryovacing the meat we just bought with the cryovac machine we just bought. We’ll beat the hot weather blues of our freezer by fair means or foul (it uses to much power when we are off grid meaning that we have to turn it off overnight. In warm weather it thaws.)
