More days in the dirt !
|Regularity stage in the sand|
|Red dust everywhere|
about it ! In the meantime, we visited some stunning parts of the Northern Territory, and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with all the other competitors.
|Breakfast in the Water Tank|
|BBQ evening at Transport Museum|
One evening ERCA put on a BBQ for us out at the National Transport Hall of Fame, where there are countless old (and not so old) vehicles dotted around the place, some in better states of repair than others ! Rail as well as road history is addressed here, and it was a trip down memory lane for many of us older lads, with vehicles that took us back to our youth ! We then had a good country bbq and natter before heading back to the hotel for an early start in the morning.
|Dry river crossings|
On the way home we stopped at Jessie Gap - a sandy dry river bed through a deep gorge that, when the rains comes and the water is flowing, must be truly spectacular. When one considers that rain is so rare in this part of the world, the river, when it flows, has to be a raging torrent to enable it to carve through the rock. Or maybe it has just taken millions of years to do it slowly ?

|Corroboree Rock and 1936 MG SA|
|300 year old Ghost Gum|
Last "tourist spot" on the way out of the gorge was a quick stop at a 300 year old Ghost Gum, said to be the largest in Australia, before we stopped for lunch out at another homestead.
