Lester's been dying to get out bush, and here's his chance. Dusty outback dirt roads lead him to Blinman, a very small town in the Flinders Ranges.
He stays with the family who run the Blinman Hotel and soon finds out what life is like in a town of only 23 people. He explores the cemetery and the historic mine, learns to pull a beer, and helps the town get ready for the annual Cook Out Back competition, where people come from everywhere to cook delicious food in the traditional Australian camp-oven.
