- Strange guests...
Having a longer stretch until the next village/roadhouse I had to use the
tent for the next 3 nights.
It took off with an interesting start as my first choice of "outback
campground" was less than fortunate.. ;-)
Right as the darkness began to set under the high eucalyptus trees where
my tent was pitched a car stopped out on the highway. I could hear it turn
around and then head back about 20meters outside where I was.
- car doors slammed and I could see two torches lit.
Not a very good feeling as there were no parking area or other reason for
a car to stop here !
The two people began walking randomly among the trees and shrubbery, the
lights from the torches searching high and low.
I kept very silent in the tent as I made what preparations I could of a
possible difficult situation.
- The car left at 4am. !!
After an hour I figured out that they probably were insect & animal
hunter?s judging from what I could hear through the darkness.
- During the night scorpions, beetles and king-size spiders come out to
enjoy themselves. Not too comforting either.. ;-)
