The next day was a struggle with the dunes, which significantly delayed our pace. We encountered wild camels and 1.5 m high termite mounds. We got to Savory Creek – the first salt river on our way.
The shock absorbers in the cars were warming up dangerously, so we had to keep an eye on them and give them a rest. After 3 days of travel, we finally reached the first water good for taking a bath, which was a real blessing.
Unfortunately, it turned out that we were losing battle against time, so we had to extend the daily distance from 124 to 155 miles. The sunsets were truly breathtaking. But so was the stress caused by camels that can jump straight under the wheels.
On our way, we encountered more ostriches, dingo dogs and, of course, wild camels. In 4 hours we managed to cover 62 miles. There was no end to problems with the cars. We’ve lost support fluid, then the fastening of stabilizer fell off, and one car completely lost the exhaust pipe.
Each moment is an adventure on this track 🙂
