Day 51 – El Questro (Day 4)

Posted from Durack, Western Australia, Australia.

Last day at El Questro today.  We started out late and didn’t end up doing much.

Kel & I went up to the station to get some washing done … and that was about it.

Day 48 – El Questro (Day 1)

Posted from Durack, Western Australia, Australia.

With nothing to hang around for at the roadhouse, we got going pretty quickly this morning.  Too quickly as it turned out.  We left behind the doormat.  Amazingly this is the first time we’ve left anything behind.  Kids might be next…

We’d only been on the road for about an hour when we got to the infamous Gibb River Road.  The Tanami was supposed to be the road that shook up the suspension.  Gibb River was supposed to be the tyre shredder.
