Day 115 - Tuesday 28 August 2012


A relatively cool start to the day today - only 18 degrees when we got up - but now its over 30 degrees already and its only 10:00 am. Given the high temperatures forecast for today (37 degrees again) we decided not to go walking around any more aboriginal sites. We spent most of the morning in the caravan with the airconditioner running flat out to keep cool.

Di did some washing and read a book while David updated our records on caravan park costs and our fuel consumption so far. So far caravan parks are averaging about $35 a night and the total cost so far is about $4,000, we have free camped on 4 nights. To date we have towed the caravan about 11,000 kms and fuel consumption is 21.8 litres per 100 kms, or 4.6 kms/litre. We have also travelled about 4,600 kms without the caravan with fuel consumptiom of 13 kms/litre, or 7.7 kms/litre. We have used 3,050 litres of diesel at a total cost of almost $5,000 or an average of $1.636 per litre, with the cheapest being $1.413 per litre near Perth, and the dearest being 1.999 per litre on the Nullarbor.

Later in the afternoon we headed for the pool to cool down then relaxed with a book in the shade. About 5:30 pm we went to the Bistro for a few drinks before dinner and ended up listening to some live music for an hour or so. Back at the van we had grilled chicken with a caesar salad.

No photos today.
