A Bunch of Battlers

“That’sit!”Peteswungawayfromthetrackandheadedtowards
theboreTheother’sfollowed– wheels skidding and jumping on
the rough ground. They made camp in a clump of stunted trees
away from the troughs.
Using the spare billy, the boys showered each other by the edge
of the narrow, deep bore pool. Meanwhile Robyn set the tea
cooking in the camp oven. Then she went to have a wash herself
and rinse out their dusty clothes, while Pete helped Billy with his
maths lesson.
It was a few days later and they were camped near the junction
of Pangee Creek and The Bogan.
