Big Drive today – Alice Springs to Mataranka …

It was a cool start today for the big drive with overcast skies and a few drops of rain but this was short lived with clear skies for most of the day.

I didn’t make too many stops today as there was a mission of getting to Mataranka and a soak in the thermal pool – a drive of 1065 kilometres which was achieved in 11 hours with fuel stops.

The fuel gauge went down a little quicker in the first leg to Tennant Creek as I sat on 125 kph (the speed limit up here is 130 kph). For the second leg I dropped it back to 115 as the roos were starting to appear but they are only little ones. 🙂

Tomorrow is an easy drive of 400 km into Darwin.
