I enjoyed another good tailwind. 

It was a short ride to the Nundroo roadhouse. I arrived at lunchtime.

Today's big truck.

Vince McCarthyI wonder how they install them. They must have a massive crane.

It was great to eat some spice instead of hamburgers. 

I considered riding further but I was having a lazy day and decided to stay here.

When I walked out of the shop, a couple caravaners kindly gave me a  cold beer and a coke.

Craig overtook me yesterday and is now one day ahead. He will end his ride in Ceduna and stay there a few nights. I'll catch up with him then.

And a veggie karma for dinner. The best roadhouse food on the Nullarbor.

Toby TesterHi Vince, it's Toby. I was following your 2nd attempt and somewhat late in catching up with your 3rd. But glad I have! Good on you. I'm steeped in admiration. Love your simple prose. I'm now bookmarking your blogs so I don't lose you again.
