We're good. About to get back into those beautiful red sand dunes. This time the plan is rig rd, knolls track, qaa line... But we'll see what happens.

The morning is cold and the wind is blowing as we pack up at Dalhousie springs. Most of the 4wds leave before us as well as the bikes.

Jacqui's not feeling well, but we manage to get our act together and get going by 10am. (NSW time still for us).

The spring creek bypass track is now permanent, as they've closed off the old main track forever, the track to Purni bore takes about an hour and a half.

There's some traffic at Purni with a group of 8 and the 2 bikes.

So a bit slow till we turn right at the rig rd.

A couple we met (Shane and Tanya) over the last night or 2 is nearby and we chat to them over the radio.

Our kids get a special treat and get to play with the car.

As the day goes by we have an early 3pm camp at the bottom left corner of the Rig rd.

A nice dune shelters us from a strong wind, and our camp fire is happy.
