There’s some nasty sharp edged stones on the Oodnadatta Track. They can ruin ya trip.
‘Did ya deflate the tyres Pete?’ I said.
‘Do ya think we should ask a local? They orta know.’ I said.
Pete pulled into the only mechanic in town. He lifted his cap and scratched his head.
‘Long way from home?’
‘Yeah. What tyre pressure do you recommend?’ Pete said.
I went to look for the dunny out the back. I stopped in me tracks when I saw a mountain of flat tyres.
‘Ahh Pete,’ I said. ‘Betta make it 18!’
