If you thought packing for the Easter camping trip created a headache in your family, spare a thought for champion campdrafter and all-round bush champion Jaye Hall.
Jaye and Ben live at Bibil, near Muttaburra, with their two children Madison and Wyatt, and she often runs the property single handed as Ben is away contract mustering for long periods.
The couple regularly catch-up at campdrafts on weekends and this Easter is no exception.
This time the family are coming together at the Yelvertoft campdraft, held at Julia Creek, and Jaye and the kids are on their way.
While other families lament over what clothes and food and drink supplies they need for their camping trip, Jaye has loaded 23 work horses for Ben, 12 camp horses to compete at the Yelvertoft draft, round bales, rolls of ringlock, 10 Kelpies, six young bulls sold to deliver to clients, five guinea fowl chickens and two Jack Russells.
Jaye described her load “as the complete travelling circus” on her Facebook post.
The moment her post hit Facebook more than 200 friends reacted while 50 or more made comments wishing her safe travels.
Read some of the responses on her Facebook post so far.

Wendy Pownall said: “And you are the driver...there is only 1 like you Jaye, Ben should wake everyday and be thankful for you. Good luck at the daft.”
Jaye we salute you – you are a true champion and unsung hero!
