Adventure 1

Waking up outside an auto-electrician’s place (probably the least glamourous place we’ve woken up on this trip so far), Darren got the starter motor on and working, we gave him a crate of beer as a token of our appreciation and he offered us a hot shower each, which I quickly accepted; there is showers on route at fuel stops, but they aren’t the most refreshing of places to clean up.

Waking up in Baladonia, just 36km away was the longest straight road in Australia, a mind numbing 146km (90 miles), but mercifully a cool temperature with overcast clouds (after a small thunderstorm the night before).
