Into the Outback

Jim and I covered nearly 1000 kms today through NSW, Victoria and Southern Australia, ending in Port Augusta. Port Augusta is the last stop before the barren outback lands. There is very little between here and Alice Springs other than desert and a few gas stations and a mining town. This is the most remote driving we will do so i'm somewhat anxious before heading out. We're just packing extra food, and water containers in the truck to ensure that if we do get stuck somewhere, we have enough gear to keep us going until help arrives. There is some road traffic, but it can be far and few between.

Hopefully I'll be able to write from Alice Springs, but there is a good chance we won't have Internet access there. At the latest, someone will post messages Sunday night (EST) or Monday morning (EST).
