Today we drive to Adelaide, some 8 hours drive away. Tomorrow we drive through Port Augusta and into the Great Unknown. I've never driven to Perth - I've flown there once and obviously flown back from there too ;-)
This here is a map that you can click on to see how far it is from Melbourne to Adelaide, the towns along the way, then Adelaide to Perth. 3500km, what about 2000 miles?, to Perth from Melbourne! That is one helluva drive!
Should be exciting! But first, I need some eggs for my pancakes and a quick trip to the post office to send some yarn to a friend who only lives 20 minutes away....
