The Snail Trail

Travelling with my home on my back and in no hurry to get anywhere


Well Seasoned at Lake Hart

After resting my back for nearly 10 days, I was finally well enough to leave Port Augusta after a last visit to the physiotherapist – and I was certainly ready for some new scenery! Fellow Solo traveller, Nev, was travelling with me in his 5th Wheeler and with his little dog Cindy. They were both great company and I was happy not to be travelling alone in case my back seized up again. Our first overnighter was at Lake Hart, an abandoned salt mine about 250kms north on the way to Coober Pedy and Alice Springs.

After arriving on a cold, cloudy and windy day , we left with cloudless blue skies. Look how different Lake Hart looks today.

   One more sleep and we will be in Coober Pedy and catching up with lots of Solo friends.
