Tuesday 5th April 2011, Bon Bon Rest Area.
It is a different life this camping out, the different characters one meets, and the flies. We travelled another 200 odd Kilometres yesterday from Woomera to Bon Bon rest area, about half way to Coober Pedy, for another two day stop over and this rest area is a bit different to the last one. At Pimba there was a road house and it gave one the light feeling of being in civilization, but here there is nothing at all, in fact after the other campers moved on this morning we were the only ones left for a while with nothing but passing traffic. Others are now starting to stop and set up camp so there will be more than just us here for the night tonight. I think Linda is actually taking a liking to this camping out, so long as she has a good supply of books, and she actually made the comment yesterday that she reckons she is adapting to this lifestyle better than I am, I really don’t know where she gets that idea. We do have a reasonable 12 volt power supply, a few years old now so a minor doubt of reliability, but it does appear to be putting up with the demand so far, and we do have TV from satellite with all the digital channels that are available in any capital city so we do not lack for methods of entertainment. It seems we were a day late arriving here as the previous night there was a female entertainer camping here and put on a performance for the mob while here, this is the sort of thing one can expect with this lifestyle.
That’s it for now, must conserve power.
