Port Lincoln tips
|Accommodation||Port Lincoln Cabin park|
|Bicycle rent||Cluster Cycles|
The staff planning system for SCA is approaching completion. It is not done yet, but not a full daytime job anymore. I'll finish the remaining bits and pieces during my evening shifts. Ho, ho, ho, there is a bit of holiday at the end of this journey.
An attempt to rent a second hand motorbike has failed. For a week I tried to buy a second hand one. That did not work out, as Australians are too relaxed to do business. That is a pity, as I would have loved to explore the Eyre peninsula a bit more.
BicycleFor the final couple of days in Port Lincoln I rent a push bike to explore the environment a bit.
Yes, no worries. I even have my own helmet and lock.
FallWell, me and my big mouth... Less than ten minutes later, the gravel in front my cabin is too loose. My front wheel looses grip and I slide down with my bike, now that has not happened in years..
And down I went. Not during a risky descend in some rough terrain of a national park, so, silly sliding because of gravel in a cabin park, at my own front door.
HoleAl my shorts are in laundry. As an exception I happen to wear my a decent pair of trousers today.
They are the only pair I brought along. It is the most formal piece of my travelling wardrobe. I bought it last year in Alice Springs, beautiful green, to give shift roster design training in Sydney to the Royal Australian Navy.
And yes, this fine pair now has two holes at my left knee. O damn it :(
RepairWhat to do?
The solution is a bit unconventional, yet simple: There is a small coin pocket stitched above the right pocket. And it is easy to take it off!
This coin bag is now at my left knee. Sewed almost invisible with brown thread. And... how handy it is.
The next day I cycle to the Lincoln National Park. The knee bag is the perfect place to store some money and a entry permit. The knee bag is easy accessible, even while cycling. Each and every cycle trousers should have a knee bag! Who can live without a knee bag nowadays?
