Excellent posts. I thoroughly enjoyed the posts detailing the Norseman to Kimba section.
In 2015 I usually did 80 km/day. Smiled wrt Cocklebiddy. You had a much better experience than I had at Nundroo. My experience was the pits!
I stayed overnight at the Iron Knob campsite. When I rolled in I asked at the Post Office about getting a beer and a snack. I had food in my panniers. They said to go to the Bowls Club. Sure enough they had tinnies and chrisps!. I was talking with several locals and the "tarbender" and mentioned I was going to bicycle back and start my stove and cook some food. They asked more about my trip, so I ordered more chrisps and another tinny, then left. I toured around the town and by the time I got back to the campsite these two locals were there waiting for me with a paper plate and microwaved lasagna covered with tinfoil! What a meal! What welcoming hospitality to iron Knob. Totally unexpected
Then a camper came by with the offer of tea or coffee. Took the tea - made to order with milk and sugah! Fell asleep quickly (as the days were short in August).
Woke up and was wondering about eating come more (cold) food when I heard a voice: Are you awake? It was the fellow camper with a bowl of HOT oatmeal and a coffee (milk and sugar). I ate it in my Akto then, then brought the bowl and cup back to him and his wife after I washed them in some cold water. They told me about the town and that they had a (hush-hush) work for dole situation in town where locals did tours of mine-sites (abandoned) and the town and asking for a cash "donation". They also had a w-f-d maintenance agreement where locals kept the town clear of rubbish etc and helped with minor facility maintenance.
The tour started at a building with local tourist info and historical "stuff" Excellent tour. I gave a good sum of money as the locals could use it more than me. Onward to Pt. Augusta later that day..
Thank you, OP, for awakening memories of my 2015 crossing
