Monday 15th - Day 24

  • Interesting coming into Mt Isa - "Welcome to Mt Isa" then behind the sign are huge chimneys pumping out smoke. Biggest chimney I have ever seen (and probably will ever see) towered over the town.
  • Fixed our solar rig (hopefully)
  • Old solar controller had melted ! bought a new one

    fix_solar2
  • Caught up on a bunch of work 

Tuesday 16th - Day 25

  • We're off to explore the area today. Check out some mines and some lookouts. 
  • Went to the isa experience place - bought a ticket for the history museum and fossil center - meh - wouldn't recommend it for the price (unless of course your a history buff or they have a guided tour on - there was just a bit too much reading all over the place and not a lot of it fit together well)
  • Decided against the mine experience (go under in a fake mine and drill a hole sorta thing). Just had first good showers in a while so didn't feel like getting dirty again =P 
  • Up to the lookout - pretty cool over the mine.  Recommend checking that out, especially at night to see all the lights and hear the noise.
