The only places you’re likely to be showering are all food drop locations. So you could leave extra toiletries/larger towel in your food drop box, if you’re doing one.


Or a small bottle of liquid soap, also from a motel.

One other thing: after the recent rains, the seeding grasses are out in full force. This means two things - the mice will breed up in the next few months, and spare socks may be a good idea if you're not using gaiters.

It's lovely and green there at the moment so hopefully you will still get some nice wildflowers in a few months' time.

All noted, Eremophila. Thanks:)

Not just mice, fingers crossed is not spinifex!!

Trying to find the lightest and cheapest towel online.

Maybe this one is light enough (and less bulky):

Spotlight have some for $5: https://www.spotlightstores.com/bath/to ... gIoHfD_BwE

Or there’s this at only 16 grams: https://www.bcf.com.au/p/outrak-hiking- ... lsrc=aw.ds

You’ll air dry pretty quickly up there anyway!
