While those softies Andy and Shirley and Co spend a nice warm dry night at Gerry’s Hostel, Rose, Beth and I enjoy natures torrent from the sky at Barcaldine. So we continue north rather than east to bypass the sodden forestry work, before we can finally head inland.
Shirley gets very excited about crossing the swollen river on a twin wire bridge with Caburn before climbing to do her first Munro bashing of the trip. Andy, Kate and Doug however take the more conservative route.
At the end of the day all of us finally collapse exhausted at our first wild camp of the trip.
