The Big Rigs

Last year I took Ripley to the highway to watch the big trucks grinding their way down the Toowoomba range for the 4 kilos to the flat lands below.
Today it was Sammy's turn to have a look and check out the biggest of them. We were lucky because we saw a couple of 42 wheelers carrying big heavy loads down the hill in low gear.

Lunch at a Country Town

Every now and again we head outside or city, and venture to a nearby small town to test their midday menu. This time it was to Cambooya to the famous Bull and Barley hotel which is now well over 100 years old.  The menu was ordinary but the peaceful sunny day made up for it.
The town is not famous for much, but it is in the middle of some productive farm land, and the large grain silos stand as testimony to that.

The Clifton Fly-in

We spent a very pleasant morning at the Clifton Fly-in. They had in excess of 60 light aircraft of all shapes and sizes. Craig parked his Jabiru alongside of other aircraft from the local Lone Eagle Flying Club, plus the dozens of craft that had flown in for the day.
