Well the camper towed beautifully behind the Patrol and after a nice 6.5 hrs we landed at a van park in Mildura. It was a balmy 40 degrees so the planned stop at Balranald went out the window and we stayed driving in the aircon  :H
Here was the lunch stop at Hay






Setting up camp tonight

I see you have upgraded to a red ST ....noooice   :Stirpot

The "anonymous member from Victoria" certainly has some mystery to it..... :think1 that's a phrase you would normally associate with parliament question time .

Have a great drive....i am so itching to get out on a road trip but a plane flight will have to suffice   :fp

Nice trip today from Mildura to Port Pirie. Its a lot cooler tonight with a lovely sea breeze. Passed a paddock with @ 100 emu's in it that would have made ST2UP very nervous indeed  :Stirpot Snowtown is now bypassed so we couldn't drop off any more bodies  :whistle



It will be a nice meander into Port Augusta tomorrow  :wink1 Its ok Stimpy I will have a great drive just for you  :grin :grin

Chris and I are at Ouyen tonight. Hot today 39C nearly all day. Still 39C at 8pm.


Aim for Port Augusta tomorrow or stop earlier if its too hot.  :H :H :H


Anyone suggest the best way with a big van??

This morning's view




Well it was a big 88kms to Port Augusta this morning including the detour checking out the 1.5klm long jetty at Port Germain where all you could see was seaweed





This was the relaxing crowd this arvo including a big fairy who was sitting in the middle of the fairy ring (ring of toadstools on the grass)




Onto Ceduna tomorrow. Poppeye We reckon Ouyen to Mildura then straight to Port Augusta via Snowtown is your best bet with a big van  :thumb

After a noisy night from the constabulary chasing a local dirt bike rider we left early to get some miles under the belt before it got too hot


Brekky was at the big Galah and they did coffee & a great bacon and egg sanga as they had run out of rolls

A later stop was in front of a farmers memorial for a cool drink

At Ceduna now where we have had a relaxing afternoon tea and sandwhiches ( read beer, wine chocolate, dip & biccy's ) followed by a great meal. Just heading up to cabin 2 where Stinky Pete and Marian and PC are glamping it up for the night.

Temp got up to 38 degrees before an arvo breeze dropped the temp to 24. We have just had a slight sprinkle of rain so a good nights sleep is predicted :-)
