living in these remote areas makes posting entries quite difficult. we woke this morning only to find that not only had the roof iced over during the freezing cold night, but it had also frozen on the inside of the tent too. according to the locals it was at record low temperatures over night of -5degrees celcius. I was sure we had left Victoria to get away from these temperatures!!! we camped on a road that lead to somewhere, but were off the main bitumen. we were all greeted very quickly with the loving attention of bloody thistles that attached themselves to your clothing, making it difficult to squat without having to deprickle when you stood up. These thingsmade a habbit of getting in places you thought they chouldn't get!!
