Western Lost City

27/7/14 - What a wonderful peaceful night, we had the whole place to ourselves, was wonderful. The road from Roper Bar to Cape Crawford is a wide dirt road with some really great bits, in other areas it was rough, rutted, corrugated, bull dust, dips, rocky and has a few creek crossings. We also had … Continue reading Western Lost City

Back onto the dirt

26/7/14 - What a rough night, literally a bunch of people who had way too much too drink were yelling and making a ruckus late into the night.

From what we saw the establishment takes your money sends … Continue reading Back onto the dirt

Back into Northern Territory

18/7/14 - Well that was our last night in WA and it was a peaceful one, we enjoyed looking at the stars before retiring to bed.
