Tyre stayed up!!!! It was with the greatest relief that we arrived in Darwin without having to drag out the jack and spare wheel. We dropped the dogs at the kennel, dropped the car at the car storage place and were in the hotel with a well earned drink in front of us by 5:00PM.
Mind you, we had not had any alcohol for weeks as Peppi as it is ostensibly a "dry" community that it only took a few drinks and we were ready to crash in our room. Even more so as we had our alarm set for 4:15 AM as the flight departs at 6:00 AM.
