    Dropped the van at Wilmington and headed to Alligator gorge great place but got to close to a browne snake that was in a hurry to get away for me. Then back to Wilmington to have a look at the Toy Museum, spent a couple of hours talking cars with the owner. Great day but bugger from the 3.5km walk throught the gorge.Read more

    Went on a bus tour of Port Pirie the town is based around the lead smelter apparently the bigeat in the world , not a place I would like to live they have regular tests of your lead levels if you want them and thats just if you live in town. The lead and cadmium settle ot the playground equipment and is ingested so to combat the under 5 year old children having high levels thet wash the bus stops and playground equipment every day. Don't think I would want to bring kids up there no mater what they say. Then moved up the hills near Wilmington for the night.Read more

    Big day today drove to Port Pirie via Port Broughton. Not much in between its a wheat farming area so it is pretty baron. Port Pirie also has a lead smelter that I am going to look at tomorrow, a sign I read said it's the largest in the world. I also narrowly missed being run over by a large train I went to give way but decided i better stop like the sign said, lucky as i did not see the train coming it would have been perfect timing. Found a little inlet amd caught a few little striped grunter but very quickly ran out of bait.Read more

    Some days are a little less glamorous than others. It's 4pm and I have been driving most of the day I stopped at Port Wakefield and Wallaroo but now I am parked for the night at a free camp on a closed school oval. The town is small and there is nothing to do except dor the pub.I will go for a walk have some dinner and go to bed early hopefully tomorrow will be a little more exciting.Read more

    Enjoying all of your updates Shane, even the ones you think are lacking glamour. What is good or not is often a matter of perspective...

    In to Adelaide today for a day with a bit of a music theme. Lunch was at the Largs pier hotel which is where Jimmy Barnes got his start and wrote a song about it, it also has a alot of history with ACDC and other Aussie bands. Then we looked at the historic part of Port Adelaide and then into Rundle Mall which had loads of buskers because of the fringe festival. Finished the day with a concert by the Brewster brothers from the Angels.Read more
