Having stayed out drinking till 2am it was with a bit of a headache that I woke up and slowly prepared to hit the road again. After seeing a couple of sights in town (the highlight being the immense Superpit) and stocking up on food at the local IGA, I left town via Toia Street, which is named after my Italian forebears who were among Kalgoorlie’s first settlers. My first choice of a camp spot was ruined when some hooligans in 4WDs drove past and spotted me. I decided to ride on and eventually found a new place to camp just before dark. This new place became the scene of ‘Attack of the Midgies’ and I was forced to retreat to my tent, where I had a cold dinner and resolved to get myself some insect repellent at the soonest opportunity.
