Oorammina Bush Camp - Day Four

Monday, June 1, 2009

After our three hour flight to Alice Springs, we arrived. We loaded up onto our new coach; however we had to switch to four wheel drive because the rain was so bad. After we loaded onto our new ride, we ran over huge puddles of mucky, muddy rain water. The mud even splashed all against the side of the van! After a nice drive, we arrived at the Ooraminna Bush Camp where we were welcomed by almost all the staff. We then were supplied with lunch, which was burgers and pasta. Soon we embarked to learn how to set up a swag by hilarious Sally. I was very surprised that I could even finish one swag with help from Shea. Next we headed to the whip cracking session, where we learned how to create a sonic boom with our whips. Indiana Jones would beat me any day, I couldn’t even crack it once! I even nicked my hand trying! But my hand has almost healed by the time you are reading this. Soon after, we ate dinner where I tried my first bit of vegemite (which wasn’t that great) and headed to the swags to get some sleep. And surprisingly, they were quite comfortable! However, now stars to sleep under, it was to clouded! We woke up the next morning to some toast, and we were headed to Uluru… only a six hour drive away.
