Does anybody have a copy/photos of the original hand painted sign boards put up by Adam of Pink Roadhouse fame. We recently came south down the old Ghan line and Oodnadatta Track and found these signs to be most informative and helpful BUT in very poor condition. Would love to get copy of photos in readable condition. Murray

Hi Murray,
You can look at and download Adam's mud maps from the Pink Roadhouse web page.
Have a look Here

Cheers

Hi Murray

The ones in the bad condition are all the original ones. There are countless dozens scattered around that area and unfortunately, with the sudden death of Adam, there will not be any more made or replaced.

Thank you both for your replies. I hadn't thought of a web page for the roadhouse and he mud maps and other info is good, but, we were very taken by the roadside information signs (most now in poor and unreadable condition) and were after photos or similar of them including the text. I realise under the circumstances they won't be redone and feel it is a pity a copy of them is not available somewhere otherwise a man's work in helping others to know and understand his beloved area will be lost.

Unfortunately a number have been stolen.

But you can Google images. Go to Google advanced search, select Images, enter something like

pink roadhouse oodnadatta track signs

in the first field and you will be rewarded.
