15-Aug-2004 -- This was the second CP for the day. After the first at 22°S 115°E I headed for the North West Coastal Highway via the Onslow road.The people I spoke to at Minderoo told me not to take the short cut in my car. Then I headed south stopping at Nanutarra Roadhouse for fuel for myself and the car.
After crossing the Yannarie river, about 70kms from Nanutarra I turn onto Towera road. 19kms down this road I crossed a cattle grid and was very close to the CP. I made a 'U' turn and was 44 metres from the spot. If I had backed up I think maybe I would have been even closer. Ten minutes later I was on my way again after my sixth CP of my trip to Darwin and return to Perth.
