We have advanced our trip ETD to tomorrow morning as all the jobs have been done, bills paid and caretaker organised.

We will be away until sometime in the middle of the year or thereabouts.

Doing a figure 8 throughout the Western Deserts and South West WA with a loop back to Alice Springs, Birdsville(EO National Meet) and the Flinders.

Take care everyone.

Stewart,

The Pub at Innamincka has some great "Had a Coopers at Cooper Creek Hotel" tee shirts. A "must have" for the Brewman:-)

Have a great trip.

Don't stress, remember you are on holidays.
Have you got everthing, is there somthing that you should have done to the vehicle, are all the lights turned off, is the iron still on, will someone collect the mail. Don't stress, and have a relaxing trip.

Have a good one Willem. If you're in Perth we've got plenty of room and gear if you could do with a shower or need to service your wagon etc.

Have fun!

Take care, Willem, and have a great trip. Weather is just starting to cool down to that special time of the year, when it all becomes glorious.

Had thoughts of catching up in Birdsville, in July, but daughter is going to South Africa at that time. Maybe at a later date...

Regards,
Bob.

Willem,
There's a few things that annoy me about your post

Firstly the destinations! all wanna see places!

Secondly your "ETD" Who ever brings a departure date forward??? Every "normal" traveller is absolutely run of their feet during the countdown to departing and for a trip of this size the departure date is often postponed at least a day or two or three.

And Thirdly, Your expected time/date of return "sometime around the middle of the year" that is just pouring salt onto an open wound.....................!

Happy Travells...........Browny

Hi Willie

Have a good trip. Now you country fellas be careful when you get to the city. Lock your car, watch out for traffic lights, it's a jungle out there and you are not street smart like us. :-))))))

Have a great trip anyway.

Health tip - don't forget contraception - it will keep you out of trouble!

Thank you to all for your good wishes. Much appreciated.

We are endeavouring to catch up with EO forumites in Perth and will also pay a visit to EO HQ while there.

This will be my last post for a while.
