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.

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.
