Home: Home at last.
Left Cobber Pedy at around 7:20, perfect daylight. All went well for the first 50kms until a bloody road train past us in the opposite direction and threw up a stone.
A few profanities came out of my mouth at that time. My 12 yr old daughter started to cry demanding we go back and chase down the Road Train and make them pay.. (I wanted to cry too.. but I held it together
) Will see if I can get it patched without looking to obvious. If not I guess they will be ordering me a new windscreen. I am gathering the MY12 or 13 will be the same.
For the remainder of South Australia I stayed on 110kph, and the fuel economy was about 8.3L/100kms still pretty good. After we got in to the Northern Territory and past Erldunda I opened it up to 130kph and the economy dropped to 9.3L/100kms still pretty darn good considering.
Got home just after 1:30pm dog and cat ... well ok only the dog was VERY happy to see us. As we arrived home in the driveway the speedo was at a perfect 3500kms.
Unloaded the car and took Baa Baaa straight to the sheep dip for her first wash. It was pretty funny as every time I pointed the water nossel near the front doors it would trigger the door opening sensors and the indicator lights would flash.
Baa Baaa was very happy to be clean even if she has a chip in her windscreen.
Relaxing now with one of my fine reds I bought from the Clare the other day. Got a lot of drinking to do tonight as some of the bottles say "Cellar until 2020" it is already 18:15 so I only have just over 2 hours to get them finished.
Over all the trip was fantastic. I am so in love with this car. It has amazing fuel economy filled up 700kms ago and still have over 1/4 of a tank... WOW. This is a good think cause while we were gone diesel jumped to $1.77 p/l
There is not really much I don't like about Baa Baaa she is awesome. I am sure there is more I could say about the trip but it may bore you to tears. If anyone has any questions post them or PM me and I will do my best to answer.
Thanks for following our journey.
