Oz Trip - Day 1

Oz Trip - 2/5/2011 - Bargara to Kumbia

Well today was the first day of the big trip. We had an early start and were on the road by 9am after finishing off a few last minute jobs. Because we have a bit more time with this trip, we don't have to push as far or fast per day.

We made the first stop, Kumbia, a little place south of Kingaroy and pretty much at the base of the Bunya Mountains.  Even early in the afternoon you could feel the cool air coming down from the mountains.

We arrived at about 1:30pm. By arriving early it allowed us to get a place in the free camp. There was only about 4 other people here when we arrived but the place soon filled up. Another 5 groups arrived after us. Some even turning up at about 5:30pm and just squeezing in.

Arriving at this time also gave me enough time to get in and finish the blog posts off that I hadn't finished for the previous trip.

With this trip I will try and keep the blog updated as much as possible. It will largely depend on where and when I can get internet coverage. At a minimum we will be hitting the “Check In” button on the SPOT tracker every afternoon. We might also send a check in message at any other interesting points of interest along the way as well.
