Tuesday 30th August 2011, Mount Isa.
It seems that we may have picked the wrong time of year to visit this area as most of the towns have annual festivals round this time and when a town has its festival the caravan parks are fully booked for that entire week. This is the reason we by-passed Camooweal on our way here, and it now seems as though we will have the same trouble at Winton, so we are going to have to plan out trip there with a little more precision. We were thinking of spending two weeks here at Mount Isa, so if we stick with that thinking we will have to use up another week somewhere before getting to Winton, or else we will have to leave here on Saturday. We now have a couple of things I have instigated that will have to be completed while here so they may also influence our decision. Apart from the wind and dust this is a nice enough place to just sit for a few weeks.
