On the road in my beautiful Alice the Bus (my house on wheels). This image was captured at sunset on the Stuart Highway, somewhere near Lake Hart, South Australia (my favourite salt lake). Alice the Bus and I were enroute to catch up with an old mate at the Pimba pub (near Woomera). This was part of my magical journey earlier this year from the desert (Uluru) to the sea.
Alice the Bus is a 1971 AEC Swift bus (which began service with the STA in Adelaide 38 years ago). She is a slow old girl (I typically cruise at a maximum speed of about 70km/hr) with a massive old 11.3 litre diesel engine. When I bought Alice, she was still a school bus. I spent 12 months converting Alice into my house on wheels. You can read more about the story of Alice the Bus at The Alice Project website.
