Life in the Desert

Gradually the subtle pastel colors of the desert seeped into our hearts and we fell in love with the remote beauty.  At one point we traveled hundreds of Kilometers for 2 days and saw no one.

Nothing but the sound of warm breezes and singing honeyeaters


My home for the next 6 months would be my Sierra Designs ClipFlashlite tent. Although it only has just enough room for 1 man and a backpack I found it to be a real winner at less than 4 lbs and easy to put up and very weatherproof.





By now we were well over the Western Australia border and miles from anywhere in the Gibson desert.  Getting lost or injured could easily result in this being the final day of ones life.  Fuel stops like this one were often days apart.  Fortunately we had extra fuel because we picked the wrong day to show up at this Aboriginal Community.  The store and pumps were closed!
