It had been my idea to go in search of an endangered species.
It had been her idea to hitch hike from Adelaide to the northern Flinders Ranges.
I didn´t think much of that idea. I tried to talk logic to her.
‘Why not use the organized forms of transport as far as we can and then hitch hike? From the 400 kilometers there, at least cover 250 with a bus?
Anya wasn’t interested: ‘Lets hitch hike all the way. It’ll be an adventure’, she said.
‘It’ll be impossible getting lifts with our heavy rucksacks.’ I retorted, ‘it´ll take bloody weeks to get there!´
