Hi Yall
It’s now Sunday 13th March and we’re at Minlaton on the Yorke Peninsula.

We had a great time in the Flinders Ranges, staying at Wilpena Pound campsite. We took a really exciting flight over the “Pound” in a light plane. It’s the only way to see the spectacular natural “Amphitheatre” formation of the mountains. The flight was a bit bumpy at times but well worth the terror!!

After the flight, we went on a 4WD treck in the Prado along the Brachina Gorge riverbed. Fortunately it didn’t have much water in it at the time but it was a good test for the Prado. The massive River Red Gums and huge wash-outs along the gorge were awesome.

On another day, we did a guided half -day 4WD tour, with four people from Adelaide, in a 12 seater Troup Carrier. We weaved our way along the ridges on the hills of Arkaba Sheep Station. The views of the surrounding mountains and plains, again demonstrated what a massive country we live in.

We were unaware, until today, about the terrible devastation in Japan. Some of the video of the event is incredible. What is going on with
