Day 289 | another bush camp 50 km past Norseman: I decide to go the long way to Esperance

100 km | Heading west total: 13,825 km

Balladonia 189
Eucla 710
Adelaide 1986

It’s a bit daunting to see that sign out on Highway 1 but at least I am only heading to Balladonia.

Just before I stop for the day a Swiss couple pull over and give me a Coke.

Head to Wharton Bay is the recommendation.

Every now and again a fellow traveller insists I go somewhere or other. I’m never short of good advice.

I confess, however, I failed to make the 700 km detour to take in Skull Springs Road near Marble Bar as recommended by Geoffrey back in the Keep River National Park.
