Greetings from the "Red Centre" of Australia. On the way up from Yulara we stopped at Stuart's Well Roadhouse, which is famous for its singing Dingo. unfortunately, the Dingo was MIA today, so nick ate a cheeseburger and we drove the rest of the way up here.

On the way into town we stopped at the Road Transport Hall Of Fame. It's primarily devoted to the Australian Trucking industry, and has dozens of old trucks on display. They have all these biographies of "famous" aussie truckers on the wall, which were oddly fascinating to read. The place was very much by truckers for truckers. Although that meant i didn't understand half of what i read, it was still an enjoyable experience. Road trains are cool.
