In case any of you were wondering, we’ve had news about the cable part. It’s here in Alice and, all things being equal, we will be vacating tent living tomorrow after another effort to unpack and repack before the big desert trek begins on Thursday.
Thus, Wednesday will be a day of packing, stocking up on food and for me, coming to terms with the prospect of no internet communication for at least a week. I may have to revert to pen and paper!
So, three days across the desert, much of which will be spent convincing some in our party that camping at Wolfe Creek Crater near the end of that route will not invoke scenes of horror.
Once we hit Halls Creek, we will officially be in the Kimberley. It’s been three weeks out and already I’m homesick. Too soon?
In other news, there is a Rugby League match on tomorrow evening. I am outnumbered in terms of my origin. Wish me well.
