Day 2 Grounded.

Day 2.
After checking the weather forecast last night, via the miracle of dongle technology and 3G, we decided that the best course of action would be to get up early and see what the wind was doing. We went for a walk to the airfield, much to the annoyance of the local wallaby population and checked the wind and trike. The trike was fine, hasn’t moved at all. The Milky Way was putting on a most spectacular display for us; the clarity of the night sky is breathtaking. Satellites and meteors zooming from horizon to horizon.
The wind was already pretty strong and blustery. So we walked back to camp, annoying the wallabies even more, and went back to bed.  The forecast was 30KNTS and has been pretty correct. It’s still early and yet the wind is pushing the trees around in camp here.  The strip at Lakefield is exactly opposite to the wind direction, another factor helping us decide to stay on the ground.
Steve and Tania are down the creek, taking photos. When they get back, we’ll have a pow-wow and decided what to do next. We have a couple of options with re-packing cars and making space for more bodies.
