  • The journey has begun.

    I started my two week trip at 5.30am today, I got as far as Burra in South Australia, I got here on dark and have booked two nights in a caravan park, very civilised I must say

    Today's trip was about 1200 Klm's, I went the pretty way as I've been down all the other roads over the years.

    Some of the towns I went through have interesting names, Speed, I nearly got cleaned up there, obviously they don't get much through traffic, Pinaroo and the best yet Worlds End.
    My fave town was Berri, it's a fruit and wine district, I got a 12 bottle case of clean skins for $48, ya gotta love that.

          Weird foot prints in the mud, I put one of mine for comparison.
          There were no boot prints or tyre tracks in the area but mine.
          There were no front paw prints either so I'm stumped as to what made them.

            Looks suspiciously like that dreaded Roostacker, the circular beer can size depression where the heel is can be a bit of a give away. Either that or a Greater Northern Yellow Footed Root Rat, in which case you had best watch your butt!!

            Enjoy your holiday Al, that is interesting country that you are travelling in and no better place to see the magnificent tapestry of stars.

                Good luck prospecting, you always hear about the Aussie who found the 100 kg nugget buried just below the surface. Maybe it is your turn. Hmmm, the foot print is strange.

                        My first night in the outback with a fire to cook tea on, what a relief from staying in that horrid caravan park last night with all the noise.

                        The night sky is just so full of stars even though its a half moon, seen four travellers so far, I call them travellers as they look like stars that travel, obviously satellites.

                          I found this little gecko last night underneath a sheet of tin.
                          It's about 3" long, such beautiful colours.

                            Hey Brickie, looks like a great trip.

                            If you want to read about the history of the area look for any books by Len Beadell. He selected the Woomera site for the army and then built about 6,000km of roads through the outback so they could retrieve the rockets.

                            I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
