Still driving

Just passed Staaten

sunny 36 °C

Just past Staaten National Park today, not much internet out here obviously, not much else either TBH, but nice scenery. Thank god I found a servo in time, almost ran out of petrol (here's a great tip, if somewhere says last petrol station for x miles, it means you really should top up, even if you've got plenty in the tank). 4WD may be helpful if I ever go offroad, but boy does it eat through petrol.

Heading on to mornington island from here, long drive ahead yet though, this empty space between Brisbane and my destination is bigger than europe!

Really glad I'm in a self contained van though. I've literally been driving as far as I want each day and just snoozing in the van wherever I choose. It was a bit scary doing this out on an empty desert road, but the money I've saved on avoiding motels in small country towns has already basically paid off the van.

Back to driving, talk to you all again soon!
