Days 8 & 9

Mike's Top Gear Challenge Days 8 & 9 Sorry to post so late- I was tired and did not feel like typing the last two days. On day 8 I went to Uluru, The Rock, which dominates the horizon from many kilometers away. When I got up I checked all of the fluid levels and the oil was about 1/2 way...

Welcome to Coober Pedy - Night 128

With an eleven hour drive to Coober Pedy in front of us, we departed promptly at 5am. Awaking at such an hour is second nature to me, though many of the other literally had to be dragged from their beds. Scooter was is need of a Kangaroo spotter, someone who wouldn’t fall asleep for the first...

Middle of Outback Tour

April 23 Up at 4am - yes you heard right 4am! Got on the bus and slept on and off (except James who was at the front keeping Horty company) until sunrise where we watched through bleary eyes. Stopped at Port Augusta for snacks and loo stop, then started the 500+km drive along stewarts Highway....

Day 5

Woke up and went to call Tom, who wouldn't take my call! Other, more pressing, phone call I guess (a bigger name on the other line). A quick breakfast and then up the trail, but not before seeing our first camels of the trip, in a pen in Marree. Along the way we stopped at South Lake...
