Off Goog's, into Glendambo, then Pimba, Woomera, Roxby Downs, and up the Borefield track to the Oodnadatta Track.

A good side trip would be to head from Roxby to Andamooka, up to Stuart Creek and then on to the Borefield Rd.

Indeed - per favour of comment from another member here (Rick Moore - President of the John McDouall Stuart society), I notice on the Westprint maps that there are several Stuart creek references in the vicinity of the Borefield track. Stuart originally named his discovery of the main creek as Chambers, but his own title was applied later. Stuart originally surveyed the area for his own pastoral lease - described it as a "marvellous country" - must have been that way then - when I go through that region in these times it looks damned dry and harsh to me. If my quick reading has done me any good, seems Stuart never took up his lease, because he kept exploring and then ended up too crook to do anything.

Could go Kingoonya to Coober Pedy to Marla and back down or Coober Pedy to William Creek, or Coober Pedy to Odnadatta
Cheers
