|Left Emerald at about 10.30 for drive of about 40 ks up the road to Sapphire. Have set up camp at free camp at Sapphire. Have had short walk to work out where everything is and drive into Rubyvale (about 6ks away). We cross the Tropic of Capricorn between the two towns. Lots of miners humpies, mullock heaps, etc around. Very definitely getting off the beaten track here!
