Well after a day of much vacillation we are leaving Esperance in the morning.
The “hose Assy Oil Return” arrived around 11:00 today after more twists and turns than a John Le Carre Novel. Now they tell me that the fan belt is worn out and needs replacing, yes you may well ask why this was not discovered until now…… But we have picked up the Kia; will pick up the new belt on the way out because if we have a spare we will never need it….. Then we head off back across the Nullarbor so we will be incommunicado for 3-4 days just under a week late…. First stop will be maybe Caiguna or there abouts.
I pray the wind will be at our heels….
Anyway today I found a really cute little self-propelled Steam Crane. Hmmm my tramway will need a breakdown crane so maybe I’ll build a model of this one.
