so after such a jovial night,,,, the next morning was a bit slow...



understandably...

anyway... a theory that Aub was leakin a bit of fuel became a reality.... which
meant the Keeps Takin Money 950 was put on blocks and striped down to reveal a fuel leak...

but to be fair,.. it was more of an issue with the aftermarket tank than the Katoom..




anyway...there was a whole lot of chefs in the kitchen so i went for a mosey...

and found...

some real weird hairy trees...



and some bush tomatoes.... not quite ripe.....



moon was still up as everyone had a bit of a laugh at the broken down kato...

('cept the Kato owners of course...)




still... even though it was desolate.... it wasnt a bad place to be...



mind you... this guy figured we were all doomed and would soon be a good feed...




anyway... he had to go hungry... a bit of silicon on the outlet of Aub's long range
tank seemed to be holding... so we were off into the Simpson Desert National Park...



dunno what you'd do with a chainsaw anyway...
not much out here....


well..... maybe the odd post...





so it was on up to Dalhousie Springs Homestead...



not too hard to believe that this end of the world couldnt sustain life long term

i'd left King Fish Camp a bit earlier than the other lads, as i knew there was
some spped freaks amongst them... and i would stop and smell the ro... i mean take
some pics here and there......

UncleGra arrived at the ruins just as i was wrapping up...



wasnt far past the ruins and there was a bit of an unexpected step-down....



and then it was on to the glorious Dalhousie Springs!



lordy me... it was great to get into some water after so many dry days....




amazing to come across such a big hot spring out here...

there was maybe 10 or so 4wd's camped nearby.... plenty of birds circling... and a few swiming....

all the lads (except the old desrt dog!) were in... must have liked the smell of his own company....



so after a magically refreshing swim....

it was of out into 'bugger all' again...
