We left Alice Springs and headed for the most boring of stretches of road along the way, stopping at Erldunda before the border to South Australia for lunch. LOTS of flies, so lunch was scoffed in the car.
The next most boring stretch of road was to Coober Pedy, until you get to the outskirts where it's like a lunar landscape with mounds of dirt dotted everywhere for the underground mines. Our site for the night was Reba's Underground Caravan Park, just to the south of Coober Pedy, sadly, it was only tents in the underground bit so we had to contend ourselves with an above ground site. There was a bit of breeze so it was quite cool.
