My home away from home for 2 weeks in Australia.

My home away from home for 2 weeks in Australia.

 

5/17/2008 & 5/18/2008: Missed my connecting flight from Sydney to Adelaide due to our VERY late arrival from into Sydney (so much for the time cushion).  Oz customs was terribly overburdened and could use help.  Must have taken at least an hour to process through customs.  Around Australia Motor-Homes picked me up at the airport (thank you) and got me quickly into the waiting campervan.  But one of the three stove burners was non-functional and the door didn’t lock.  A broken door lock is a very bad thing when your carrying lots of opals and large quantities of money.  Didn’t make it onto the road with the campervan until 3:30PM, so I wasn’t able to get any further than Port Wakefield.  Port Wakefield has a small but very clean caravan park (RV Park).  Early to bed and had a very good sleep.
