After Mt Hart there is not much dirt road left so we soon found ourselves in Derby purchasing much needed supplies (nothing left in the way of food at all!)
We chose to spend the night 16 klms out from Derby, WA, at Birdswood Downs Station.
This was where we had word from Cil, Alex and Nigel that Dad was unwell and had been admitted to Boxhill Hospital. The communication from here was difficult with intermittent reception. My phone is behaving really badly again!
Some very kind Germans lent me their phone so I could make contact with 'Cil, to find out what was going on.
Later the ipad worked so we were able to make other necessary calls.
