so it was up and out of the tents in the morning to another beautiful day...





but it wasnt going to be out on the road early today..
everyone was up....



but we had the small issue of Sundowners back tyre to sort out...




he ripped it off, and emptied all the ground up rubber out of it... the tube was fried... the tyre was 'frieder'...

that was a new tyre 160km ago... bugger...

we were about 10km out of Oodnadatta... but there was really bugger all chance of them having a spare tyre... (even though there really
should be a prety good chance in a place like that.... hear its up for sale now )

so anyway, i have a bit of a chat to Sundowner, and ask it he recons he can fit a 150 on (normally a 140...).. we come to the conclusion that a 150 should fit.... so it tell him he can have my back tyre if he wants... so long as he puts my new rear on my bike while he's at it...

everyones problems sorted...



oh, except Matty... seems the Landy went out in sympathy with 2 flats overnight!!



lucky he was carrying 2 spares.... just meant he now had none... and we hadnt really started the 'tough' bit of the trip yet....

anyway, 4 tyre changes, and we were on our way...

well at least 10km to Oodnadatta...
