The land of Emus

June 15th


Emus, at first I thought it was the land of goats, but its not, its Emus (and goats). Left the camp site early to get ahead of the Km's. 137 to Broken Hill. Once there it was off to the info centre for a coffee and of course some Info. Got word that the place to check out was a place called the living desert and so headed there. Its an area the town has put together with a predator proof fence containing natural flora and fauna. It was pretty neat, and the long walk even had a watering station. Then it was back on the road to head towards the flinders ranges and not far out of broken hill is where i ran into a group of 7 Emus traveling together. I stopped for a few snaps which drew their attention and then came right up to me. Knowing that they have a pretty hearty kick i stood and whistled when i felt they got too close. Was pretty neat thought, they were right into figuring out what i was about.

Driving and more driving. Made it to a place called Peterborough South Australia. Here at an impromptu camp with a bunch of RV's. The other site said it was RV friendly and didn't want people sleeping in passenger cars, so i left so i wouldn't get bothered. So now at a site that doesn't say anything. Should be alright for the night, there are a few RVs here as this site is much less busy then the other. Just watching some tv and folding laundry, editing photos etc. Its like i'm at home.. though i suppose for the moment i am at home. Well time to hammer out a few emails and hit the hay. talk soon
Oh while driving i had a few good ideas for the Mark II. I look forward to building it after this trip!
