Day 10 – Into South Australia

We’re now into South Australia and went through Nullarbor station yesterday.

Jack rolling across the Nullarbor

The brilliant Spud (aka Debora Holland), our main driver, picked us up after we’d driven past the campsite (we do that because not all campsites are situated in the exact location we need!) – so Spud drives out and picks us up and takes us back to the same spot in the morning.

Spud is also our main cook – the food is delicious!

Just Another Day In The Life Of Jack Sinclair

It was just another day in the life of Jack Sinclair – cycling across the Nullarbor, getting stopped by motorists who saw him on TV in Perth (and providing a donation), seeing emus, wombats, echidnas, kangaroos and more.

Then, at lunchtime, it’s up in a light plane taking off from the Nullarbor Roadhouse to go whale watching (we saw tons of whales and their calves in the Great Australian Bight).

Ready to fly to the Great Australian Bight

Jack, Emily and I (Brendon) went up and Jack flew the plane for 10 minutes or so (he’s flown before with the Air Force Cadets, so Emily and I weren’t freaking out entirely.

More soon.

Well done Jack and Brendon, I can only imagine how sore you guys must be feeling but sounds as if you are pushing ahead in leaps and bounds! Keep up the pace and we’ll be thinking of you back here in Brisbane! Cheers from Leanne

Hi Guys
Just walked in the door. Gold Coast is cold and windy, but we’re used to that aren’t we. Hope everything is going well and no one has fallen off. Will keep in touch. Miss you all. Yes, even Neil.
Love ya Jack
