Report 27 april
By Sjaak en Trudy
From Gladstone to Kimba we drive through a sloping landscape.
In Welmington we stop at a toy museum.
We are going to Port Agusta for our phone and then the world is flat.
To come to Ceduna we can choose from 2 routes. We take the shortest.
The road is long but not bare. In the distance we see an A-Ford arriving.
We meet 2 men who makse the journey from East to West.
They also make this trip to raise money for a good cause. Information at www.East ToWest.com.au
They talk about their journey, show us the route and look to our route and are very impressed.
In Kimba we see a large image of Australia and take pictures of it.
When we arrived at the campsite a man asked me: Why are you riding with an open door?
I told of the warmth of the Model T-Ford engine and a little later he gave me special insulation material that Dirk immediately put on.
