South Australia

No sleep till Brooklyn (or Loxton).

We were woken by an annoying buzz this morning.
It transpires that the hovercraft was in fact an ultralight and it was now flying around the Pink Lakes at a low altitude.
After breakfast we decided to hit the bush tracks north of the Lakes and follow them until they joined the Border Track. From there we would head north before turning hard left and finishing up in Loxton.
The tracks were not as hard as we thought they would be. Mostly a hard orange gravel base with the occasional bit of sand thrown in. We could sit on 60 km/h most of the time. Not somewhere I would like to be on a GSA!
Once we left the bush there was a short burn down some awesome gravel roads into Loxton.
We set up camp and rang Andrew. He was supplying the new rock sliders for Hillary. He was only a few kms out of town so we headed out to get some protection.
The sliders are a great bit of gear and really well made by Andrew. He also proceeded to fit them for us as well. After a bit of mucking about with a bolt that did not want to party we soon had some new sidestep/sliders fitted.
Tomorrow we will head out towards Cape Jervis and find a nice spot near the beach to camp.
