Now past Port Augusta, it’s off into the Outback. I felt a bit queezy looking down that long stretch of road with red dirt. Very scary at first to think, I’m going OUT THERE – ALONE!!!
I really was worried as all heck, but then that fear was overtaken with the fear of a Roadtrain trying to overtake me. And the wind, wasn’t really bad, but enough for my 2nd day nerves…
I stopped at Iron Knob. Iron Knob!! I never stop there! But glad I did.. Very quiet desperate mining town, so me and an old park bench had a gander.. Once I had my juice, I decided to tackle the next bit.
My goal was to get to Wudinna.. I knew there was nowhere I wanted to camp after that.. was a perfect place to stop.
As I was setting up my tent, a lovely couple pulled into the next site. They remembered me, because on the road, I PASSED THEM!! This is a big deal, because I am so slow.. for me to pass anybody is unheard of. But they were going 75 mph, which is even slow for me. (Now that I am currently in Margaret River, I can add that out of this whole trip I’ve passed a total of 2 vehicles… )
Just in case Mr. Sam is reading, he would be happy to know that I found myself speeding on the Nullabor, 113 KM/hr!!
Anyway, summary to Wudinna… a successful day complete..
