well, pretty eventful day today!! me and wes got no sleep last night cos some bloody sprinklers went off in the middle of the night all down the side of our tent on some weird kind of pattern and it was so noisy it was unreal! would have got soaken if we'd left the tent though! anyway, at least now we know they are waterproof!
the drive up to what was meant to be marla was pretty eventful, saw my first (living) kangaroos today at the side of the road. we made it up to glendambo where we stopped for lunch and i took over the driving, had only been going for 11km when one of the back tyres blew out and i lost control of the car and it skidded then span around and we ended up off the road facing the complete wrong direction. was really scary at the time but no one was hurt. managed to change the tyre at the roadside then had to head up to coober pedy (the opal capital of the world - a weird place where nearly everything is underground!) miki drove up there cos i was a bit shook up after the incident. got a new tyre and a new spare cos that wasnt the best.
anyway we made it up to cadney homestead which wasnt too far from marla, and it was a really nice campsite.
