Chilly morning in Birdsville
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.

Sounds like a cool little pub! I think you are going meet lots of characters along the way! Goodluck in the Desert today!
Off into the Simpson Desert this morning! Tony told me that Big Red a massive sandhill is closed due to a lot of water, so they have to ride a 40km detour which they were told was very very tough going! Big big ruts…..oh I hope they all take it easy!xx
Be very careful on that greasy clay and the big ol’ sand dune. Glad you are well rested and ready to tackle what is ahead. Cold down here as well. Margaret River will be a nice reward at the end where some mates have a great winery for you to chill at.
Go Morgan Go!
