Hi guys, Long ago someone asked the question about calculating distances between point A and point B. The reply was given and i checked it out to find it to be the best thing since sliced bread. This thing gave you distance, directions etc.
My question is, does anyone have the web address for this link as my slave HDD melted and i lost it.

Would be nice to get it back as it was very helpful for planning trips....any takers?
cheers all.

Your sliced bread must be the one that can only go on bitumen. I checked out a couple of routes and for Arkaroola to Tibbobura was over 1,000 k's and went nowhere near Cameron's Corner but appeared to keep to the bitumen on the whole trip. With a 4x4 why worry about the sealed highway!

Sometimes you just have use the highway to get where you want when you only have a short time to enjoy certain places.

Rotty,
Exactly what Baz said. I wanted to get an idea of distance from point A to point B. Thats all i wanted. gives me an idea of how long the drive will be. Also tells me what roads to take (bitumen).
You can never have too much info when travelling somewhere you have never been. In this case (refering to the gathering at Murry Sunset) I now know what towns i will be travelling through to get there and have a better understanding of where i will be sleeping overnight, in my case, i think Wagga Wagga will be my sleepover for this trip. I want to arrive there fresh and enjoy the time I have to spend with people from this great forum. Not to mention the place itself.

For the serious stuff, I have the GPS to get me to the "offroad" places. I just have to map it to suit me.

I understand what your saying though and apreciate your feedback.
Cheers,
Ange

Your response is accepted for the bitumen travel. I tend to spend too much time travelling the bitumen between Mount Gambier and Adelaide so I prefer to get off the bitumen as often as possible. I am leading a trip in July up to the Flinders and back through Cameron's Corner with the least amount of bitumen as possible.
The travelmate site is excellent for the main road trips.

If you go to the Travelmate site and then the "Smart Trip" section you can put in travel from A to B via. WIth a bit of thought and by putting in the right places to go via Travelmate will take you on unsealed roads.

It sometimes takes a bit of fiddleing but you can find distances along some little used roads.

It can be very interesting, also try via the shortest or fastest route
