Ben and his wife Jacinta drove their truck into our camping area. They said they have driven past many times and wanted to check it out. Some of us campers were taking photos of the sunset and the truck was in the way. Jacinta invited me to sit in the driver’s cab and Ben took a couple of photos.
How beautiful it is! Smells wonderful, all leather. Lots of dials. They let me pull the big horn. They have a good sound system, and that’s all I had time for.
I have been following Ben of The Drone Way on Facebook since the ABC had an article about him a few weeks ago.
A very special Nullabour adventure.
Ben took the photos on my camera, so I’m not sure about copyright.
Here we are, finally on the Nullabour Plain. I’ve had enough of the wind outside, dear readers, and this view is taken through our windscreen. When we stopped for lunch there were still lots of bushes and small trees around. There are camping opportunities all along the road, but this is the only one we know of with Telstra access.
The weather overnight continued cloudy and blustery, with a little rain. Today we’ve had a very windy and blustery day of driving, stopping for views of the sea and cliffs of the Bight.
Our camping is becoming a bit predictable now as we have begun to stay overnight in familiar places. We have two weeks to get to Canberra Showgrounds. It looks like we have a good chance of getting there on the Monday, which gives us the opportunity to look around for a power point near the stables. We were told about this by one of the volunteers when we came two years ago and hope this unofficial camping option is still a possibility.
We have run out of conventional bread and rather than buy a white loaf at a roadhouse we had corn thins for lunch with our usual toppings. This seems to be a first for Stephen and fortunately he likes it. Tonight I’ve made a tomato and vegetable soup using chicken stock, a can of tomatoes, pasta and mixed frozen vegetables. For our protein we will have some canned tuna and we have some flat bread as well.
