Hello Pinko

Coordinate tip...if you hold down the ALT key and type 0176 you will get a degree symbol like this ° Not that there is anything wrong with a * , just thought I'd let you know.

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Marty, why don't you use the extensive discussion on the forum (Tread 102456) when you last posted exactly the same question.

Lyn is right, that thread has a massive amount of info and photos.
Not sure why Marty had to ask again?

Lyn and John,
What matter dose it make if he asked again. I mean what harm is it to revisit the same subject. For Lyn to remember what was posted 4000 posts ago either has a good memory or has plenty of time to look up and then instead of answering the question, questions the reason for the post.
Guys lets have more constructive reply's rather than why did he do that response.
Cheers Andy

Hi

I think Lyn may have remembered like I did because its the third time the OP has repeated a previously asked question, despite receiving a correct, detailed answer in all cases. In this instance and in the previous two, the question was exactly the same and in all cases the answer was never going to be different. With all due respect, its an odd thing to do, not sure of why, maybe the OP can explain the circumstances.

It takes little time to find the previous examples - just type in the OP's name in the search function.

In the previous instance the thread was locked by the Moderators because it was the third time the same question had been asked. Not the end of the world and no real harm done either way, but somewhat perplexing.

Cheers
Greg

Gday Andy,
You might have noticed that on all the previous threads, I've taken the time to post pictures, articles and trackfiles to this question. There are a whole bunch of forum members who have followed my directions and found the grave. There's no way I'll waste my time to provide it again to a troll.

Hi Phil

Well said. Without your most valued help, we would never have found the site.

One the previous thread, I posted my very accurate waypoint and photos, so you can not do any more than that.

Anyone that knows how to use a GPS can find the site easy.

Cheers

The grave site, road leading in and full details was added to the Birdsville Track Trek note. The places system was fully updated with the details and I linked this and the treknote with the full details to the top of the thread.
