I think this is picking up where I last left off on the main story.

 

Yes, we both did get to the K1 Junction

Morning following our night's camp in the desert, a chance to dry out !

Heading back to the Crossing, the track leading up to it was rather rough to say the least

Both safely back over

And headed to the Birdsville Track once again.

 

About 2 hours down the Track, we stopped in to see and old mate and fellow Moker - Phil, at Mungerannie Pub (about 1/2 way down the Birdsville Track)

On heading on in and seeing Phil, he looked dreadful. He hadn't slept in 2 or 3 days, as he just can't get hired help presently, due to Covid. Jack and I offered to look after the place for an hour or so, just before lunch, so he could get his head down for some much needed rest. That was at about 11 in the Morning.

 

9:30 that night, Jack and I were still working the bar,,,,,

Phil looking much better and relaxed for the first time in quite a while, on the side of the bar where he'd rather be

While we didn't intend to, we stayed the night and looked after all the many guests, most who also didn't intend to stay, but once you enter that time capsule, it's is hard to leave

 

Morning after the night before

We were often asked when McDonalds would be opening

" Come back next week " :D

 

 

With the 'Trip' pretty much over by this point, we stopped in for one last night out at Farina, an abandoned town that once was a Sheep 'centre'.
