so from the Ochre Pits, we continued north towards Marree, but stopping
in at Farina, a 'ghost town' just over 50kms south of Marree...

there's a campground out the back an Sundowner buggered off out there to see if TonyRDR was (or had been) out there the night before..

i had a look around town.....

Sundowner returner, with no sign of Tony...



we then stopped and read every sign at the info shelter...



before heading off (rather late) to Marree, where UncleGra's beat up 625 was parked outside the mosque...



we met up with Graham...

talked shit for too long, after a good hour of standing around, with Sundowner trying to convince Uncle Gra
that he should go over and have a look at the museum, i fueled up, and grabed a pie...

i decided that these 2 would be here all day (not that there was much of it left by now..)

Sundowner went to get some lunch, and i suggested to Graham that if he wanted to get anywhere
today he might have to get on his bike and wave Sundowner along..
and said i was about to bugger off to Lake Eyre North for the night and i'd catch up with them
tomorrow night around near Oodnadatta..

so after about 2 hours, i said my goodbyes and left Sundowner and UncleGra sitting around at the servo in Maree..

i headed off north...



up thru the dog fence...



and on.... the road was great... nicely baked dry after recent rain...



and set camp at the same spot PhilMeUp and i had camped a few years earlier....

and was happy there was no sign of a dust storm blowing in this time...



i still had an hour before sunset......
