Hi guys,

Well here we are, finally in Marree after an eventful few days. We have been well and truly rain affected. We sat around in Windorah for a couple of days waiting for things to dry out, and then drove to Birdsville. The progress was a bit slow with a few creek crossings, and we waited for some subarus to make the biggest creek crossing, just in case they got bogged. We got to Birdsville safe and sound. Sadly Ruth was in Brisbane, and so though we had the privilege of meeting Ian, no Ruth! However, we had good fun going out to Big Red and having a picnic in the Simpson desert. We also had a very good feed of yabbies! We set off down the Track on Monday, with plans to camp at Melon Creek ....... only it rained, so we decided to go on to Mungarannie. Just as well really, as we were stuck there for the next 3 days! Johnno is a great character, and we enjoyed ourselves, including helping painting the ceiling in the new dining room! Yesterday we slipped and slid our way to Marree. There is serious mud here!!!! Hopefully we can get to William creek tomorrow but the track has been closed (Just for a change). We flew over Lake Eyre this morning which was magic.

More news later, but this is fun!
Happy travelling
Anne and Millny

Hi Anne - can't believe I missed you!!! Flew to Brisbane for a $930 haircut! LOL
Glad you are having a good time and that you got some yabbies. Drying out here now - lovely sunny but very cold day here. Some people just came in from Marree - at 7:00 p.m. and said it was 'difficult'. Have a good trip and keep the reports coming.

Hi Anne,
As a newie, a lot of the technical stuff in here goes straight over my head, LOL, and no I am not blonde, I read your post with interest. I have today found a few females posting I thought at first it was all boys and their toys, LOL. Look forward to reading more of your trip.
