The relaxed appearance belies the facts: still struggling through two weeks of unseasonal rain and unable to get where we need to be. So much mud, bogs and lack of internet contact. My passengers hate me so much right now.
And we may or may not make it down the remote dirt track tomorrow. Enough supplies to keep us going if we get stuck, until we are rescued but more rain is forecast. Still, at least we made it to Birdsville!

And this was some of the floods we slogged through today.
We (my partner and myself) have just finished cleaning the bus and fixing all of the faults caused by the mud and water. I am so tired. We bought champagne for the paxs to celebrate actually making it as far as Birdsville, a feat we thought unlikely ten days ago, given unseasonal rain and road closures.
It is supposed to rain again tomorrow.
