Had lunch at the Mulga Creek Pub, Byrock.

More jaywalkers.

My camp for the night was in Barringun at the former Tattersalls Hotel,
which was destoyed by fire Christmas 2017.  There were conditions with
the 'free' camping, you had to purchase a drink from temporary 'container' hotel first. I also had a $2 shower in the 'motel' room.

As normal I stayed away from the crowds, that's my car on the far right.
