Information on

"This loading truck belongs to Utopia [community] - brings mail, food, from Alice Springs. Sometimes I pay little bit for ride to Alice Springs - bit like bush bus - sit on bench seat in the back - bumpy ride - stop along way for break - driver, he's family. Get off at shops or Tangentyere. Sometimes that truck is school bus - gives lifts around community. Sometimes dogs get picked up. No cattle. No horses. I've been catching that one for long time now. I go home every time I can."
