    Off to Port Augusta to meet Briank and wattie..........port gutta looked a friendly place....yes that is a missile in the background :wtf:

    was warned about not to stay in gutta but there was something about the 14 foot high barbed wire fence and armed guards that made it feel nice and safe although the search light kept me awake at night :rolleyes:
