Edition 200: 18th February 2010
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
Special 200th Edition of the ExplorOz Newsletter
You may recall our recent poll asked "Which ExplorOz sticker would you place on your vehicle?". It was clear almost from
the beginning that the original round design was favoured and by the end of polling, almost 50% of respondents voted "round". We've
responded to your feedback and have returned to the original round design. All shop orders have been going out with a free round sticker
now for about a week.
starts today and asks for your thoughts about travelling the region known as the The Explorer Highway (Way),
which links the journey between Alice Springs and Adelaide. ExplorOz has offered to support current research being conducted
by the tourism industry together with businesses in the region. Your response to our new poll will assist in providing some
baseline information for the project.
New Technology Strip Lights
Did you know that insects aren't attracted to the yellow light spectrum? That's why this new product is exceptional. The
Twin Duo (Yellow or White) LED Strip Lights have 40 of each colour LEDs, that’s double the amount of LEDs of the standard
Duo 90 Strip Lights.
At approximately 2 cm wide and 90cm long they can be fitted into very thin, unobtrusive locations, and are ideal for use in camper trailers, caravans, tents, vehicles, boats, yachts and horse floats, they are especially effective when used under vehicle awnings.
For the brightest white light output, we also have the new
Twin 90 Flex White LED Strip Lights with two rows of bright white LEDs.

Stock Route. Click for

thickly wooded areas to Toolinna Cove. On the way, explore Five Ways Well, sink holes, ruins of a telegraph
linesman’s hut, rock holes and a tank, before reaching the spectacular 75 metre high Baxter’s Cliffs at

Attendance Request for National Gathering
We are concerned at the number of people who have put their names down to attend the 2010 ExplorOz National Gathering. The host venue cannot cater for excessive numbers so we need to know if alternative camping arrangements are necessary. Please help us plan this event by removing your name from the list unless you are committed to being there. Go to the
2010 National Gathering page and press the 'Unable to Attend' button.
