Day 3 Birdsville to Clayton's Crossing (near Maree)via the Birdsville Track. Kilometres 467/roadkill 2/arguments 0/breakdowns 1.

Apparently it was a tree grown from seed found in either Burke or Wills diary....

The second stop was to see the legendary Talc Alf who lives out in the middle of nowhere with his dog Bojangles. He has all sorts of philosophies on life and he has even created his own alphabet. He was quite entertaining. Next stop was Lake Eyre, the largest salt water lake. There was no water there.....just a whole lot of salt. Then we did a quick stop at Mound Springs. The flies were starting to...
