We stayed a week at our daughters home in Adelaide and it was lovely seeing our two grandsons Oakley and Tate, we took them to the Adelaide Zoo and though they enjoyed it they are still to young at 4 and 3 to fully appreciate it, now had there been dinosaurs or soldiers on display it would have been different. After a few days of baby sitting & refereeing a few brotherly squabbles and tantrums whilst our daughter and husband were at work we left our our daughter and her family with a tear in our hearts. 💕
After Adelaide we stopped a night at Kimba Recreation Reserve, a popular camp area for caravan enthusiasts. We checked out the painted silos which we thought were excellent.
Our next night we bush camped approximately 30klms west of Yalata where we had a great camp fire and listened to plenty of classic songs of our era. We had hoped to catch up with friends heading East and I’m sure I saw their rig go past but with no reply on the uhf radio there wasn’t much we could do.
We had what could have been a dangerous incident occur twice, each time we were overtaking a slower vehicle and the car lost power. Not the ideal situation, I was able to pull back in and stop off the road, I have a scan gauge fitted and I was able to scan for any error codes of which there was one showing, apparently it’s a high turbo boost pressure issue but I think it has more to do with a engine pre-filter that was restricting fuel pressure. I cleared the code and was able to continue on but at our next stop I replaced the filter, fingers crossed.
Saturday being AFL grand final day we hit the road early to get some distance done before stopping at Pannikin Cave near Cocklebiddy to watch the footy. After watching a great game and pleased the West Coast Eagles were the winners Vickie suggested driving on another hour to save us the hundred kilometres tomorrow. We expect to arrive home Monday.
