Achy Breaky Megadrive
Today we packed up and bade Lorella farewell at about 9am. We had a big day ahead: all the way to Hells Gate roadhouse in Queensland, with 500km on dirt roads.
The roads were beyond awful…. Creek crossings, floodways and bone-jarring equipment-killing corrugations.
We limped into Boroloola for fuel, and opened the van to find next level carnage. Even the fridge had broken free and was dangerously mobile. Not to mention the drawers that had emptied themselves, and the hand fulls of “spare” screws.
The suspension of the van was sounding dodgey but I ignored that for the time being….
The delights of Boroloola….
We drove well into the night (scarey) and managed to avoid ‘Roos and cows.
We crossed the border into Queensland at 9 pm (no police there!) and finally arrived at Hells Gate a bit later. The roads in Queensland were WAY better! Phew!
Everything had had quite a rattle-about in the van!
The gin survived, but dusty though!
We had a nice spot at Hell’s Gate and enjoyed their home \240made sausage rolls for dinner.
Tomorrow we’re bound for Lawn Hill National Park where we’ll stay a few days.
