For us, the holiday never begins until we pass the rain and get off the black-top into open desert country - and we still weren't there yet. We hardly had anything out of our vehicles because we hadn't cooked last night so we decided to keep things simple and headed off this morning without breakfast and instead stopped at Paynes Find and Mount Magnet for food and coffee. Further on at Meekatharra we stopped in at Woolworths for a final shopping trip before heading east to pick up the Goldfields Highway out to Wiluna. Note - all meat here is very reasonably priced, I would even say the same price as I pay at home for meat or even cheaper. And its all pre-cryovaced into meal sized portions. Our stops were lengthy and leisurely so we didn't quite make it all the way to Wiluna but found a bush camp 60km west of Wiluna in a road builders' quarry. Campfire dinner of meat and sausages using the BBQube made a great night.
