Rain and Lightning
We made it to Lightning Ridge after nearly 8 hours of hard driving. We now fully understand how unpopulated the country truly is. We will post photos after dinner.
We also found Toby! We met Toby in Fiji at the First Landing Bar. Toby is an Old-Timer Opal miner from Lightning Ridge. We told him we would be visiting and we wanted to know how to find him and he said just ask for Toby...everybody knows him...and he was right. The first person we asked knew him and where to find him. We can't wait to see the old bugger!
