06/01/07 contd..

The evening in Coober Pedy was great. We went to a pizza place instead of having to cook and wash up and then to a local, underground pub. Some strange characters in there but that’s just part of the wonder of it all! You’d have to be a little bit crazy to live in the desert in 50 degree heat

During our walk back from the pub a huge storm started. It’s just weird. In the desert walking through torrential rain, lightning and thunder! They get 150ml of rain a year here and it evaporates ar 200ml a year! So it is rare and there we were in the middle of it all. Everyone went to bed except LOF, Double E, Davey and me. We stayed up to watch it 🙂 We dodged the rain under the veranda until 11:30pm. A 5:30am start tomorrow :/

Off to Port Augusta now- another long drive – 6 hours. The we’re camping in a sheep station neat Wilpena pound – It’s a town with a population of 5! We’ll make it a city tonight.

Aussie have a fun sense of humour about these things though! 😉


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
