What I did
Left Port Augusta at last. Travelling towards Ceduna . Passed through Iron Knob an Iron minning town. Ore was mined here and transported by rail to Whyalla in the early days now it goes by road .
When we stopped for the night at Iron Knob rest area #2 . We were just settling into getting tea whe these two rather large trucks pulled in next to us .They were carrying two Train Engines that were made in Qld and bound for Perth . They camped the night with us they were accompanied by six escort Vehicles.
Up early as the trucks left at 6.30am travelled to Kimba our first stop of the day
Kimba is the home of the big Galah (No not Dave) Kimba is a grain growing area.
along the way we encounted a dust storm the wind was so stong nearl blew us off the road then it started to rain .Dust and water creates Mud.
