Great introduction to Central Australia last night at the Birdsville Hotel. A few beers and dinner in front of the fire where we met a couple of great guys from Margaret River who are hopping around Australia in their 2 seater plane. Alan & Fred invited us to visit when we get to Margaret River…….got Andee very excited as Fred is a crazy surfer and has a couple of spare boards. Good blokes – will definitely catch up with them again.
Great sleep-in at the very comfortable and hospitable Birdsville Hotel but a cold start to the day: temp 2 degrees. Warm compared to what we expect over the next couple of weeks. Rain forecast for Alice Springs…..will make the red clay very greasy for riding.
