Thanks to my crazy daughter, Kim, for for this Ermahgerd! moment. Photo by my ever-patient-with-her-craziness son-in-law Will.

After 2 years with not so much as a Couchsurfer or a Warmshowers cyclist visiting, we’ve been comparatively inundated this year.

Anthony is our latest visitor. He arrived from the west, which is a little unusual. Most of our visitors are heading in the opposite direction.

As a result, he’d done some of the worst of Australia’s roads before he arrived, so I guess the smooth, straight bitumen was pretty easy by comparison. He also had an amazing piece of luck on the Oodnadatta Track. You can read about that, and his other adventures, on his Facebook page and watch his video on his YouTube channel.

Despite it being winter, the night before Anthony left was very warm, so he and Mr Goanna enjoyed a cleansing ale (or 2).


WTFriday … be careful what you wish for

Recent deliveries to our place implore me to do something I wouldn’t normally consider.

If it’s ok with everyone I’ll wait ’til the weather warms up … and I’m thinner … and maybe younger. Or I’ll just drink the wine and do what it says.
