Launceston

Monday – 27th October We enjoyed the ferry over to Devonport – particularly the sunset as we left Melbourne & the good feeling on board – everyone was having a great time on the deck with Chardonnay or beer in hand and the occasional cigar. I don’t think either of us slept much, but what…

Day 2 – Coolgardie to Cocklebiddy

8:20am – Just a quick morning update (sorry no pics). We had a reasonable night considering the caravan park in Coolgardie is right next to the road – trucks come through every 10 minutes. We are mostly dry now, after yesterdays wet start. We are aiming for Cocklebiddy today – 600 kms. Dave

We leave this morning.  Trailer worries hopefully behind us (a tyre wore out rather quickly after out two trips to Margaret River and Jurien Bay – after some worries that it might have been a serious axel problem, it looks like it was a bad tyre) The weather is not the best & there was…
