Edition 262: 24th May 2012

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

ExplorOz is the the travellers grapevine, enabling you to post first-hand knowledge and experiences while on the road. This information often helps other travellers, and one of the most unique and important tools to do this is in our Road Conditions section.

Travellers Comments

One of the functions of the Road Conditions system is to re-publish information from official reports, as well as the website URLs for travellers to go direct to the source of this information. However, the truly unique feature of this system is our Travellers Comments tool, which has just been given an update.

Simply by clicking on the "Add Your Comment" button for a particular road, you'll be filling in the gaps not found in official reports. Tell us what the drive was like, did you hit any rough patches, and any other relevant info you feel is appropriate.

Another great new feature - Road Conditions have now been added to Site Search. All you need to do is type in the name of a track and you'll find all of our relevant road conditions pages along with all other site page results.

So don't forget to send all of your friends and family the link the your Profile Page, or tell them to search for you in the Members List, so that they can view everything you've been up to in the one place!
