Day 242 | finally leaving Broome: out on the highway again

81 km | Heading west total: 10,690 km

Well, I’ve been the recipient of a great deal unprovoked kindness in Broome.

Thanks Jan.

It’s been marvellously restorative.

On my way again, there’s a realisation that hits once I turn off at the Roebuck Plain roadhouse.

A sign says:

Sandfire 286
Pardoo 424
Port Hedland 576

There’s a vast lot of very little between here and Sandfire.

No houses, shops or water supplies.

Skirting the Great Sandy Desert.

Sandfire is the next roadhouse and it’s going to be a 3 day ride into the significant headwind.
