100k w of Normanton to Burketown
138 km (85.6 mi)

Today was pretty uneventful, listened to the public radio station for most of the day. At 4:00pm they had people calling in about the layout of the new White Pages, everyone seemed to like the new format, what a great world we live in. Flies were everywhere today, I had a great feeling of satisfaction watching the little turds try and go for my face, only to get blocked by the mighty power of my $4.71 mosquito net.

Burketown was close enoiugh that I pushed it into the night to get there. It was quite a pleasant to ride through the giant open fields with a near full moon lighting everything up.

Got some food at the pub in Burketown. The pub had a small collection of license plates from the US on the wall. This is the second time I've seen this down here.

Met some other people from the Caravan park, one couple had just been to Oregon and Washington...what a small world.
