I am several posts behind, but will catch up soon. When this is published we will be somewhere over the Pacific, after an adventurous and sublime three months crossing half of the red center outback by bicycle, and from Indian Ocean to Pacific by vehicle. The photo Claire saying goodbye at one of our favorite seaside camps. This is our third goodbye to Australia. Will we come again?
We rode The Great Central Road dirt track (one of Australia’s longest) across The Great Victoria Desert in the direction of Perth. It’s something around 1200 kilometers of dirt with very little in the way of services, food or water. We had five weeks of outback cycling and camping adventure, followed by a tiny van road trip from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean revisiting old haunts, and both new and old friends.
