Decided to drive direct to Weipa today instead of stopping in at Merluna Station. The drive was easy enough, but full of corrugations, which really aren't that much fun! And then the fact that the car wouldn't go into 4WD, made it even worse!
Arrived at Weipa and checked into the caravan park. Set up camp and then Stewy, Kristy and Rori made their way to our campsite as they had checked into a cabin in the same park yesterday.
George got straight on the phone to our mechanic back in Sydney to get instructions on how to fix our 4WD gear selector and after numerous phone calls to Adam, George and Stewy managed to fix it! (We had also been in touch with a friend who used to live here to get the name of a good mechanic up here as a backup, but luckily this wasn't needed!)
One badly cut finger later, various blood splatters on and around the car, and a quick first aid application from Nurse Shelly, the car was fixed, George's finger was bandaged and we were ready to go exploring.
