Beckie and Charlie try to survive on the mission to the other side of this goddamn huge island through the red-centre of the outback. Day 1: Boxing Day, 2016. Melbourne to Spud’s Roadhouse: 1206k. I woke up (somehow without a Christmas hangover) at 05:30am, ready for Charlie’s arrival to depart Melbourne. After our early start, … More Melbourne to Darwin in 4.5 Days
