Friday 9th July
Left our Gravel Pit – camp site and headed north to Coober Pedy. 210 ks later we arrived around 11:15 am. Found our free site at Old Timers mine site. Was a dusty area with another 5 or 6 van. No wind so all was good. Set up camp and went to town to top up some groceries and drinks. Our van battery was not charging from our solar panels so intend to look at that tomorrow. Town is very interesting and is primarily a town built on top of a series of opal mine sites. No grass and vegetation to speak of but plenty of dirt.
