Since our next stop was to Laverton which was only 360 km away we decided to visit the Royal Flying Doctors Services and take a tour and found out that the creator is represented on the 20 dollar bill here in Australia, if you are lucky you get to see a plane unfortunately for us both planes were out . We did however leave with a great appreciation to what they do and the logistics of it all. with services ranging from just calling for medical advice and education to medical transport via a jet. At times they get permission to land on a highway.
It has been raining all morning, and after the tour I was hoping that the rain would reduce , which it did just enough for us to pack our bikes and head north. The weather didn’t get any better with scattered rain and temps around the 11 deg C and then going down to 8.5 deg C. By the time we reached the caravan park in Laverton which is the best place to stay I started to shiver even though we had stopped earlier and I put on another layer of clothing .
We got settled and went into town to the Desert Inn Hotel where they have the best cooked food, tomorrow we head into the outback on dirt roads for the next 4 days .
