Just as well Dad and I get along very well!
Wudinna is where Vicki and Rex live.
In my previous life I have spent a great many hours sitting on the roadside at this sign trying to thumb a lift to Vicki's place. I have hitch-hiked across the Nullabor 7-8 times and this sign is at the junction of the Eyre Highway and the road to Whyalla. This is the last major turn-off before you hit the road for Western Australia. It's invariably hot and a long wait on the side of the road can be pretty uncomfortable. One night I "slept" in the bush on the side of the road, jumping up each time a car or truck approached in the vain hope of getting a lift. I finally got a ride early the next morning. It's only about 2000km from here to home!
