After a very cold night, we left out free camp at the Bight quite early. Along the way we called into the 3 signposted Cliff lookouts and all of the Roadhouses, as Steph has decided to write down the fuel prices of each as we go over the Nullarbor. We also drive through a few free camps just check them out. Steph is driving a bit again today.

We are not finding this section boring as there seems to be a good flow of traffic, and we have been surprised about how green the Nullarbor is. They have had a reasonable amount of rain since we last drove the Eyre Hwy.

At the Border Village we ate the last of our banana with yoghurt, and the van and car were thoroughly searched as we crossed the border, whereas last time we were not. So good thing we were on top of the using everything up, and Steph got to keep her teddy bear honey jar..

We arrived at Ciaguna Blowhole which is 5 kms west of Ciaguna which is start of the Longest straight road in Australia, 147kms (90 miles) without a corner. There we spot Gary and Diane following some tracks heading off into the bush so we headed in after them. Better to spend the night with company than on your own.

Again Gary brings out the chainsaw and we have a fire to warm ourselves by while we eat our meal but by now we have no fresh veg or fruit. But we had frozen ones so we had Sweet and Sour Chicken with Steamed Rice and Vegies, not bad for camping.

Tomorrow we head on towards Norseman to turn right towards Kalgoorlie.
