Rich has said that the Satellite phone isn't charging properly so they were going to switch it off and use it for emergency only. Ben has one if you need to contact them.

Hi Charles,
We're thinking of you a lot. Actually quite jealous that you are enjoying a wonderful adventure while we endure a boring, safe existence in the suburbs!! Hope you bring back lots of interesting photos. Stay safe.

Just about at Halls Creek, only 90km to go. Will get about 300 litres of deisel and 220 liters of petrol here. Also about 110 litres of water. Thank goodness we got food in Perth, it sure is exspensive up here!!! We hope to leave for the tanimi track which goes to Wolf Creek crater mid morning. Only about 100 km to the crater tomorrow and then to the canning stock route propper on Monday. We will not have any more cell coverage after we leave halls creek. Rich

Is the butcher's shop still in Halls Creek which advertises " tough, tasteless meat"???

Swaped utes so back on the road again. This truck is in better condition and so although a bit of a pain to sap gear etc. we think this might have been a good result. Rich

Pleased you are up and away again. Remember staying in Newman and going to BHP Billiton mine

The ute has a fuel tank problem so they have to swap it for another one, while in Newman. It'll take about 4 hrs to swap the gear over to a new ute.
