TANAMI!!! We headed off early to start our drive to Alice Springs! (I should probably clarify our reasons for this drive – we're meeting with Ben’s brother Jamie and his wife Nadine who have organised an amazing event – SHITBOX RALLY to raise money for the Cancer Council (check out their site for more info www.shitboxrally.com.au ) and we’re going to Sarah and Tom’s wedding (great friends from Adelaide, Sarah is from Alice Springs originally!)

It was a little crazy driving past the sign that said the road was closed!! The road was pretty cut up from the rain, there were troughs in the road that the water had cut out, lots of water on the road. It was 450kms of bumpy, noisy dirt road and we were happy to arrive at Rabbit Flat Roadhouse in one piece! Everything was SO green!

The owner Bruce and his wife Jackie have lived there for 41 years and ran the roadhouse 7 days a week for that whole time without a break!! They are retiring at the end of the year and the roadhouse will be closed from 31/12/10. We camped just across from the roadhouse, so remote!
