Lunch at the Cadney Homestead
This outback station has found another way to supplement their income.
Last night we went to bed the lone people in the rest stop. We awoke this morning to find that we had been joined by two road trains and a camper.
Today we found how challenging it is to estimate our fuel needs as we battled heads winds and lots of long uphill gradients. We were relieved to get to the next fuel stop with some fuel remaining. A lesson learned. As you can see from the photo, fuel has become a significant cost. Only $130 this time! Yesterday we got very close to breaking the $200 fuel stop.
In spite of the warning signs, today we only saw three brumbies, two head of cattle and a couple of groups of emus. Two groups of people trying to wave cars down was a little disconcerting. However we heard warnings over the CB radio.
The day finished in a delightful caravan park at Marla. A real oasis.
We also enjoyed reading your comments on our blog.
