Today Glen moved to Blackbutt. Setting up camp was a trial. Of course he hadn't had a dry run, just took all his new "stuff" and began the process of unloading the ute. The tent went up well, but the stretcher was uncomfortable, should have had a sleep on it before the trip. But he is now ready for his first night, a swim in the creek and dinner, and tomorrow is when the work begins.................
