Many great dirt miles today along the Turton Highway. Open plains county. Starting to see termite mounds more now.
Deviated from the T.H. late in the day and headed for Homevale. It was already pretty dark when we got near the historic township of Homevale. Looking for a camp site I had on my gps led us down a little unsigned track which is the “Old Dray Track” according to my maps. We never did find the camp on moonlight dam so we opted to keep on along this great little track.
What followed was a half hour ride north along the tiny track through challenging creek crossings and finally a very steep hill climb that had us both struggling to get enough traction and all in the dark.
A full on hill climb in the dark, what an experience!
Raman said he was looking at the very steep track right in front of him, working his way up, and happened to glance up into the sky only to see a little red dot of my tail light floating in the black high above him. “Oh shit, I hope it doesn’t get any steeper!”
We finally got to camp at 8:10pm. We could see lights on the plain below. We knew we had climbed a long way.
