Still Alive, though dusty and more freckled than ever.

I travel

We made it to Broken Hill in one piece.  A rather long, yet educational drive.  We stopped so many times to take photos that I think the whole 'stop revive survive' movement should use us as poster children.  Me with my stupid fashionless attire and foolish grin, and Belle looking terribly sophisicated, despite the flies, heat and dust.  I don't know how she does it.

She doesn't think she looks sophisticated, but she does.  Trust me.

I'm on a meter, so I'll shut up and just post some photos, k?  Sorry it's not cut.  I'm having computer issues.

Between Emdale Roadhouse and Wilcannia:

Emu @ Silverton:


This is an ACTUAL street name:


Oustside Silverton.  Tonight we're going on a 2hr camel ride. WOO!


So yeah.  So far, this whole trip rocks.  Totally awesome and the driving isn't bothering me at all.  Although I've seen more dead kangaroos than live ones.  I think the whole Barrier Hwy should be renamed to "Roadkill Way".  More appropriate.

I would love to have sat in on the naming committee for that road! What do you think: made up entirely of sleep-deprived fratboys?

I dunno. There was also a "Dick Creek" a bit after that, but we couldn't stop.

Possibly a man named Richard lived down that way, and he had curly hair?

Belle and I then had a long conversation about the etymology of the word 'dick', and just when did it become a euphemism for 'penis'?

And what was it *before* it was a euphemism? I'd Google, but I'm scared of the results.
