Good morning and welcome to day number 6 of ‘Conquering The Simpson 2012′,
Thankfully, it was a little bit warmer last night at Marla, our first stop after 3 very challenging days of rough, dirt roads. Our trip today, is just over 500km to Uluru which is all bitumen road, so hopefully this will give the cars and the trailers a little bit of a break before we head off to conquer the great Simpson Desert.
The cars and trailers have performed perfectly as of yet so let’s hope that this good fortune continues for the remainder of our trip.
A little bit of a lazy night last night involving sitting around playing cards and drinking coffee/tea (that’s right – no alcohol was drunk last night!!) landed the team in bed by around 8:30pm followed by an earlier start this morning since our plan is to have packed up and left by 8:00am.
So, with that being said, I’d better get going and help pack!
