After about an hour of rest we headed to the Exchange Hotel where our meal was organised for the night. What a great place. Plenty of character around the streets as well as inside the hotel. We had a great meal with plenty of great company.
About 5 minutes after we arrived at the pub, in walked the rallytives who we have been missing for a few days. The cars and crews who have been having their own adventure, have finally caught up. A great moment for everyone, now that we are all back together.
This morning we got to have a sleep in, have had the washing machine and dryer going hard all day, the room of rallytives a couple of doors down from us has been named the laundromat… so we know what they’ve been doing all day and took a tour around town and up to the ‘Super Pit’. (You can check this out on Google Earth… it is HUGE!)
Kalgoorlie mechanics and workshops of all descriptions have been super busy today. They have had rally cars galore passing through their doors with a number of ailments. So far so good. Haven’t heard of anyone with bad news regarding their car. In the meantime, crews have been relaxing, playing tourists, washing, cleaning cars and stocking up on supplies.
Tonight we have invited Anna from GIVIT in WA to join us for dinner. I’m pretty sure something exciting will be happening… you will have to stay tuned to see what that is.
Tomorrow we head off to Houpeton. I have no idea what is there or what tomorrow will bring. Every day on the RBR brings new adventures and new experiences. Will catch you up on these tomorrow night.
Note: No pics attached to this post as RB has uploaded a whole bunch from the past few days onto the photo page, you can go check them out here:
