Oz Trip - Day 122

Day 122 – 31/8/2012 – Pardoo Roadhouse

The jockey wheel finally turned up late afternoon the previous day so I fitted it just after we had packed up camp and were hitched up. We pulled out of the van park right on 10am. We had a final walk along the Cable Beach foreshore while we were having smoko and, finally hit the road again at 10:30am.

Now that we were fully back on the road again, we would like to say a big thank you to Luke and Daryl at Australian Offroad Campers in getting us back on the road.  They did everything possible to get us going as quickly as possible and were great to deal with throughout the whole situation.  The main delay in getting us going was the time waiting for the parts to be transported from one side of the country to the other!

Now that we were fully back on the road and a fair bit behind our schedule, we had to make some hard decisions on what we had to leave out in order to get home on time.

We were hoping to make it to Port Hedland but because of our late depature, we only made it to the Pardoo Roadhouse. It was the location where the category 4 Cyclone Lua hit on the 18th March this year. It was looking pretty good for only being 6 months since it took the hit. All of the trees had been shredded but were starting to grow new shoots.
