Burning Down The House

Second day of travelling and a full 900km day today. And petrol prices are increasing already! Looks like its going to be an expensive trip across! Arrived at Eucla in the dark. A mini gas fire (stupid leaky gas bottle lantern!) resulted in us using Tristan's high power bike light so we could cook our tea without chopping fingers or burning hands. The clouds are still following us....but at least the rain has subsided. Tried to eat as much of our fruit and veg as possible as it will get quarantined tomorrow.
