Today is vehicle day – Firstly the car service – passed with flying colours.
Next was chasing caravan tyres – after 2 hours we find there are no tyres to fit our van in Karratha or Port Hedland. We’re told another size will fit – then they look and say no you need the others – which is what I told them in the first place – if only they’d believed a woman on the phone – would have saved them a journey!!! Hey ho such is life!!!
With comments from our neighbour – nobody knows where Karratha is, deliveries arrive when they arrive – ringing in our ears we order the tyres for delivery on 20th/21st.
Now the windscreen – turns out Karratha windscreen place doesn’t have the right one – they need to order it!!! Help – no not another order. Ah better luck – Port Hedland has one and they’re coming here on 21st
Nothing for it – stay till 21st. Get the washing and the shopping done.
Decide a roof rack is needed – remember that dead roo we ran over – he messed up the spare wheel carrier. The only way to get the spare wheel out is remove the carrier – hence the roof rack
LOoking fo roof rack on line and the iPad died!!!! I suppose it was old – over 5 years.
Karratha is not the best place for a roof rack & ipad!!!!!
Trip out to look at Dampier & Deep gorge
Remember the film Red Dog – this is the area he lived
you also get lovely spots like this Cove
Now up Deep Gorge – with loads of aboriginal paintings – all high up the rocks. Not the most pleasant walking experience. Especially as it’s rather like a Roos loo around the small water holes!!!! The rocks aren’t even either!!!!
A trip out to Point Samson and Roebourne
Windscreen & tyres day
call to tell us the windscreen guy is in hospital – cut his hand!!!!
4pm – tyre chap arrives – tyres have not arrived. They were sent snail mail not express.
