ExplorOz - David & Michelle

Trip notes were not written by the assigned driver today who was David Darke so were compiled by Michelle (he was fined).

Leaving Stones Crossing was quite exciting because the first challenge of the day was actually crossing the Wenlock River.

We had observed a number of vehicles cross the day before and we had walked it many times. There was a seriously big hole and so some vehicles applied a radiator blind. In the end most vehicles did the crossing a number of times – once to take across the passenger with a camera and then back to the other side to have the crossing recorded on video. Once all the testosterone was expired for the morning the boys agreed to move on to our next camp site. The drive was fairly fast yet corrugated and David Martin agreed to let his female passenger take the driver’s seat for the morning. He took control again after lunch after they lost a beer bottle to a bump, lost a spotlight completely and broke the CB aerial wire and lost all transmission ability! On arrival at our campsite the priority was again to freshen up in the running rapids and rockpools of the Dulhunty River.
