I see you are taking your time to enjoy it David as we did Inaminka to Tibbuburra via bore track easily in 1 day due to time constraints but would have liked 2 days as there was a good camp spot about 1/2 way along ( should have got a waypoint ) but will this year in MayRegards Bob

Yeah the wife and I decided we wanted to be relaxed and unrushed.
In addition, I once worked as freelance photojournalist I've done all kinds of stuff from the social impact of the war in Nicaragua to Mexico City earthquake to shooting and writing about World Championship/World Cup mountain biking and other cycling and I have always wanted to marry my love of photography and 4wd'ing by writing some articles, so I will need time for that aspect.
