Whyalla (24th Dec)

We have spent a couple of weeks in Whyalla waiting on our new car, while here our main source of transport have been the push bikes so we have had a good look round and getting a little more fitter doing so, with the exception of three days where the temperatures reached over 40 degrees two of those days up around 43 a bit hot for us tasmanians 🙂

we had the chance to meet more people on there travels and get more quality travel tips on where to go when crossing the Nullarbor from our new friends Elizabeth and Bruce who have been on the road for along time and crossed the Nulla quite a few times, thanks for spending the time and a few drinks with us guy’s

We finally got our new Tug after spending 5 hours on a bus to Adelaide and catching a taxi to Adrian Brian ford, after an hour of going through the details with salesman we were on our way back to Whyalla taking another 4 hours to drive back, it was a long day but were very happy with the car it drives so nice and more comfortable than the pajero.

On the road again :-)
