Our first year to visit of the Birdsville races. (No Horses)
We decided to make it a boys only trip and I invited 2 good mates along. Frank and Jan.
There has been some rain in the outback so some of the rivers look quite picturesque.
Winorah to Birdsville 430km - (290 Km dirt road when this strip of bitumen ends)
The sun was starting to set so we set up camp at Deon’s Lookout 3 hours from Birdsville.
The area is very flat and stony.
We set up our camp at the Birdsville Caravan Park close to the water.
Our GP-100W Bi-Fold kept up with the fridge and lighting for the 4 days.
Big Red was the perfect opportunity to test our new ‘PSV’ to reduce tyre pressures.
Hot Air Balloon over Birdsville.
A stray rock smashed our 7 pin plug and the wires were dragging along the road.
This had to be repaired as we had no electric brakes on the van without it.
I will add more to this story over the next few weeks.
