END OF THE ROAD

June 22, 2013

This is probably the final blog with Lesley & Erich, Chris & Val. As far as we are concerned this trip across the OUTBACK WAY from Curtain Springs to here has been a fantastic trip- we have so enjoyed their company with many laughs, drinks while watching sunsets, meals at our “Red Dirt Restaurant” along the way, Bruce & I watching on while the others looked for Geocaches. Seeing what the Raod houses along the way provided for travellers, the condition of one was not a nice sight but the others were well stocked with clean surroundings, as well as the food being the typical deep fried stuff! we did have a nice steak sandwich at one of them though.
Getting fuel has not been a problem- basically they have been $2+ & we have been allowed to top tanks under vans as well.
For the the road was not a problem, but in 2 weeks time it could be totally different. Corrugations could be worse, potholes deeper, could be closed because of rain. There are sections where major road works are being done, there was only one using water which did cause the vans & vehicles to get a little redder! water does wonders though once we get to where they can be washed.
The weather has been very kind with only this morning being awful- down to 0 degrees outside.
We are going into Leonora this morning for food, water etc then down about 60k to Niagara Dam to wait for Chuck & Catriana to arrive on Monday and where we go after that- who knows but it will be basically a little further north until time to head south & into the cold for the wildflower season.
To our 4 friends, many ,many thanks for a wonderful time since last Tuesday .
