I awoke on day 3 having finally gotten a good night’s sleep. I lay in bed for a moment and felt at peace. It was nice to wake up not dope sick for the first time in many years.
It was also pay day, time to get moving. I packed up and was ready to hit the road. Leo and I get in the car, and it won’t click over! Bugger. That damn battery problem again. I can rig up my solar panel, but it wasn’t enough this time, I had to get a jump start. Got up to the mechanics and got that sorted. No sweat!
I drove away from that little town laughing like a maniac, I’d gotten through the detox! I drove over 250km of dirt road through the desert and arrived in Esperance right on schedule.
