Day 30: Dampier to Carnarvon - quite a lot of not a lot....

A big day riding today from Dampier to Carnarvon. We got away early and stopped for brekkie at the Fortescue Roadhouse and then basically pushed on the 680kms to Carnarvon. As the heading says - quite a lot really of not a lot at all. Just sand and scrub and long long long long roads.

A highlight was recrossing the Tropic of Capricorn - we are officially out of the tropics!

Not much there really but an opportunity to stop and be silly - I'll post the silly photos when Dick gets back with his/our USB cable. Here....

On down to Carnarvon where we checked into a backpackers in the old part of town. There was a big rigmorole with opening and locking gates where we could actually have driven in the front door of the hostel and out the back to the cabins. Seeing as how we planned to stay there the night we thought this might not have been the best of ideas.

We were getting a bit worried with the state of Olga's tyre by now - it had been losing pressure right through the day. Seemed to be holding for now but we'll see how it goes in the morning. Then we went out for dinner - for the life of me I can't remember where!!!
