Spirits were raised now that we were in Alice Springs. We enjoyed our sausage curry for breakfast then dropped the car off at the Land Rover dealer. Graham hired a Thrifty Prado for the day so all of us could fit in for lunch in town & a visit the Telegraph Museum. The car was all fixed by 5pm so we hitched up the tvan as per our normal setup, yay. We departed Alice the next morning heading south on the hwy & have arrived at Coober Pedy.
