A camping one and I am so busy. Most of the time we dont even have signal and conditions are dusty and inclined towards extremes.
Today we had been bush camping the last few days (one long drop, no other sanitary facilities ) and just our group under the srars in the remote outback. Everybody filthy and looking forward to the campground with showers and flush toilets.
Then we sheared a trailer axle suspension pin on our brand new trailer and suddenly we were going nowhere. Sure, there was a sat phone but nobody’s coming out to help here. Hours of backtracking in the truck and dropping people off in pairs every km to search the rugged track for the sheared off pin.
We never found it but jury rigged another one from the trailerfoot stand bolt and gaffer tape and limped the 170 further kms to our destination.
New one being airfreighted in to Yulara (uluru airport) tomorrow and we will see if we can fix it. Maybe but i envisage another long day.
Ive just got to bed hours after my passengers.
