Max 80 km/h donut - Inside Australia - Lake Ballard - GQDT 001 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Awoke from a slumber at the Inside Australia - Lake Ballard camp ground to discover one rear flat tyre. Great I thought. This will be fun driving for 200+ kilometres on AWD roads on a donut without a second spare and no phone range.

Well that was to be the least of the problems. It turns out the mechanic when replacing the brakes did a real good job with the compressor. One nearly stripped bolt later and a helping hand with a second tyre lever to create some leverage, the old tyre was removed, just. We were so close to one stripped bolt leaving us stranded on the road least travelled.

Last horse salon - Grand Hotel - Kookynie -GQDT 002 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

When we arrived at the Grand Hotel in Kookynie (Western Australia's oldest hotel apparently, being built in 1902) there was no sign of this horse. We wondered around a bit and upon our return to the hotel and the car, there was our friend, patiently waiting at the front door for the hotel to open. There was nobody in sight and no harness or the like on the horse.

Kookynie today is pretty much a ghost town with the hotel being the only aspect recalling the days of the gold rush era in the early 1900's.

We visited as part of our July 2019 father/son drive of the 1,000 km Golden Quest Discovery Trail in the goldfields of Western Australia.
