Leaving Port Augusta for home I write this last note with sadness as we have had such an experience.
Driving the Kombi slowly, needing to stop regularly, stinking hot at times all made the trip interesting it gave us a chance to really see the sights rather than passing flashes at 110kph. We’ve struggled through 46C temps, Cyclones forming, flooded creek/river crossings, 90% humidity and some beautiful weather at the most unlikely places such as The Nullabor Plain, Alice Spring and Uluru have all added to the experience that neither of us will forget.
Next year Boris the Kombi will definitely be called upon to take us around the east coast of Australia. Stay tuned for 2013 The Wirth’s in their 74 Kombi will continue.
