It has been an anxious wait to start this trip.
A covid 19 5 day lock down in Melbourne meant state borders closed and my Central Australian adventure not possible.
Life during the 5 day lockdown was not too arduous as I live near the beach
And it was only 5 days till I could catch up with mates again
And undertake preparation for the trip ahead.
In the days of GPS I still love a good map
The 5 day lockdown turned out a godsend.
The outbreak was quickly bought under control and there are no more new cases in Victoria
I recieve my permit to enter South Australia on Friday and today I complete my annual medical tests
Problem of being 63 with some heart disease.
But will soon be off on the adventure which will take in
The Great Ocean Road;
The Adelaide Hills,
The Flinders Ranges,
The Oodnadatta track and surrounds,
The Red Centre of Australia made most famous by Uluru and the amazing county around it
Into Queensland and down to Longreach,
The fossil area finds around Winton,
0ver 8,000 km to get to my friends eldest daughters wedding near Brisbane.
Wouldn’t do it any other way!
