View I woke to at free camp

Pete meeting the locals

The gypsy camp

After leaving Maleny we headed northward again stopping at Gympie at a caravan supplies shop where we bought some shades for the van and a super water filter so we can have clean water. Good investments I thought. We did another free camp just north of Gympie which had a pond/lake with lots of birds and a goose in residents.

It was great to wake up, look out my window and see a pond with birds just a few metres away. After a birthday breakfast for Pete we headed to Maryborough. We set up camp at Maryborough showground and I discovered we had a moisture/condensation problem under our mattresses so put everything out in the sun to dry out and kill the mould. It was like a gypsy camp. I treated everything with white vinegar, then tea tree oil plus Pete drilled air holes in the bed boards. Thank heavens it was sunny. I am going to make sure it doesn't happen again (I hope).

We ended up staying two days, did lots of washing and sunning of bedding. We went to the RSL for Petes birthday and had a great meal followed with some Keno and presto won again $80. It was a good night.
