After spending a few nights in Ophir we headed to Sofala to check out a FREE STAY we saw in the CAMPS book. Thinking that Sofala is a quiet little town the FREE STAY should be great. We snuck through the back streets of Sofala and worked out way out to the Campsite. After hardly seeing another camper for over an hour we rolled into a small campground packed full. Vans were lined up like in a caravan park, right along the river. We were about to leave until we spotted a track which wound its way past the campers back down river. This was great, we found a nice quiet spot alongside a deaf family. I wish I had paid more attention to Bevan's signing lessons from Levuka!!

We finally spotted some LIVE wildlife from the car. A Shingle back or Stump-tailed lizard was keeping warm in the sun, right in the middle of the road.

At our campsite we spotted a nice large lump of wood. ActionDad was keen to fire up the chainsaw but it just seemed wrong as the place was so quiet. Instead, the block splitter took care of it.
Not long after we settled around the fire we had our first Action. This young guy thought he'd be a hero and drive his XR6 along a section of a dry river bed. I was quick to dig out the snatch strap but after noticing an XR6 without even a towbar isn't really snatch-ready. Instead once I convinced the driver to keep his wheels straight and a quick lesson in rocking back-and-forth I had him drive back out under his own steam.
That night we had rain all night but it stayed warm enough to sleep with the van door open.
