Bike n' Wheels hits Mt Isa

Bigger than Newport?
There's that ruddy great big chimney Velophile just mentioned

Day 21 to 24 - Boulia to Mt Isa
This road is also sealed to Mt Isa (300km in 3 days) and we camp two nights enroute. Mt Isa is the biggest town on our trip, so enjoy a day off to get back in contact with the rest of the world

Proclamation: Mt Isa has MOBILE COVERAGE
Text message: Mt Isa has mobile service! And shops! Glad for rest day tomorrow. Where's the pub?

Good to see Velophiles got his priorities straight. So I gave him a congratulatory phone call to celebrate his good fortune. More: Mt Isa is a Thriving Metropolis, A Retail Paradise, Has Vegetation, A Very Big Chimney And Possible Broadband. Yes, someones been in the desert too long, but they had a crackin' wind assisted ride in from Boulia.

This Wednesday arvo, participants of Bike n' Wheels are organising a 'Drag Race' a la
Priscilla style.

Darling, it's a Mining Town. Take care.....

  • Ah, come on he can take care of himself! You right about "Big Feller", he's approx 35cm taller than me. Then he's rather tall & I'm kinda shortish ;)
