Over the Christmas/New Year period we ran a poll surveying our audience's perception of themselves and their driving/touring attitudes. So now the results
are in, and we are impressed to see 181 out of a total of 290 people (62% of the total votes) have considered themselves either as an
"Explorer/Adventurer" or "Wanderer/Grey Nomad", with the lowest group numbers (6%), being "hardcore 4WDrivers" Interesting indeed...
Highways and Backroads WA
The brand new road atlas "Highways and Backroads of Western Australia" has finally arrived in stock, and best of all it’s a
great buy at only $19.95. This atlas contains up-to-date 2010 mapping, and provides clearly marked locations of many different
types of landmarks, local attractions, and accommodation.

NEW Trek Note - WA Goldfields Region
Northern Yilgarn Conservation Reserves
The Northern Yilgarn is a collection of existing and proposed conservation reserves in WA’s goldfields region and our trek writer
has compiled a wonderful 3 day trek taking in the highlights including Helena and Aurora Range, Mt Manning Range, Jaurdi, Mt Elvire
and Die Hardy/Jackson/Windarling Ranges. This isn't a difficult trek with much of it on formed unsealed roads but parts lie in remote
and lonely lands with track conditions to match. Sounds like something you'd like to explore? It's all here in
