Dear travel friends
A last question from my side before we head off "Down Under" in a few days. We'll be doing a 8-day drive-self tour of The Red Center and have hired a 4WD and will be driving a cicle starting off with the MacDonell Ranges, on to Kings Canyon, out to Ayers and back via Curtin Springs Cattlestation. Accommodation will be a mix of budget motel rooms and camping cabins at which sites our major meals will likewise be taken. However, we do enjoy making our own picnic lunches and driving in the outback we will need to bring quite a bit of water and beverages along - plus wine for the nights :-) - hence we shall no doubt be in need of a cooler. Having, however, just asked our car rental company of the possibility of renting an electric cooler for the car plus some chairs and possibly a sateline phone with them, we were told that no such items were for hire. That leaves us with no other option than to purchase, we suppose - or do you know, if there is a place in Alice Springs, were we could rent some of it? In any case, where would you suggest us to go looking/shopping for these items in Alice Springs? Your comments/suggestions much appreciated - thank you.
Kind regards - PURPLE
