Transport To Darwin: Creative Cargo Management
Another tour, another transport stage.
Out late-August desert trip left from Darwin in the Northern Territory… putting about 2,700 kilometers between us and our rally point. Additionally we had to drop off a trailer where the tour would be ending (Longreach, QLD) so we could get our equipment home again once the tour was over.
That presented us with a dilemma; how were we going to leave the trailer in Longreach if we had to two motorcycles all the way to Darwin?
It took some creative cargo management and although we drove through Queensland looking like a Mad Max movie prop, we got all our gear where it needed to be:
The ride to Darwin was punctuated by the usual points of interest; the hospital I had been revived at after my kangaroo collision, a pub featured in Crocodile Dundee, and about ten McDonald’s stops.
