The road ahead - this is a place called Sheepyard in the Opal Fields west of Lightning Ridge. It is like a rabbit warren with tracks meandering in all directions through the thousands of opal leases. Lots of people living in shanties, sheds and old cars, some have done well and built nice homes. Others have done well yet still prefer to camp in the car. Everyone we met was friendly and welcoming.
