Chill out day & running repairs. We head into the "Big Smoke" and after hearing a horror story from Coober Pedy (some fellow travelers' hitch being taken off their 4wd when it was parked outside the supermarket & then being sold back to them by some entrepreneurial locals) we decided to purchase a Hayman Reece lock for ours! We notice security guards outside Coles & Woolworths and many groups of Aboriginals particularly young men (more than I remember) & explain to the kids not to wander off. So many shops are closed/rundown even in the shopping centre (where you have to pay 50c to use the toilet) so we decide quick food shop & head back to the van. Bill spends the avo re-fitting the window & fitting the windscreen-washer motor he picked up yesterday. Kids make a break for it & spend next few hours on the jumping pillow (finally other kids to play with!) Me I get to “clean-out” very therapeutic with no-one around…. Off to cook dinner & plan the day tomorrow! Bye now M.M.M

Like I said Kids be very carefull around the Aboriginees they can be very dangerous up north most southerners have never seen this type of violence
If in doubt Get out of Dodge.
Any way just be a little cautous, looking forward to more pictures hope the weather is warming up

Hi Guys,

Missing you all and really enjoying reading about your daily adventures.

Lucy, I think you have a new calling, you need to be an author of a book. You have such a way with words, and its very enjoyable to read. I seriously think you should consider a career change.

Keep enjoying your travels, and each others company, and travel safely!

Sending you lots of hugs and kisses.
