Three sleeps and we are off - heading west - Melbourne - Mildura - Port Augusta - then the "treeless plain" - this side of the country is all new to us and can't wait to see it - we have three months to do as much as we can - have to come back via se Qld - see the kids and grandkids. Have so much info am wondering where to put the clothes - oh well I am sure they will fit in somewhere.
Say g'day if you see us - black Terrano II - Dingo 2000 off road camper - exploroz stickers.

G'day,
If either of you find yourselves taking a detour via the Yorke Peninsula (about 180 klm south of Pt Augusta), it'd be great to meet you. My mobile is 0414 890 148.
Have a safe trip one and all.
Cheers
Roachie

Ruth, I think that's one gathering I'm staying away from. Don't like the sound of Willems white lightning, and the spectre of Birdville full of naked men just doesn't do much for me. Rather a strange name for that town. There are so few birds in Birdsville....I've met the fella from Augathella and I know all the charlies are in Charleville....but met very few birds in Birdsville...a few bird brains at the races :)))))))

Hiya Ruthie, nice to see you here. Moses is flashing eyes at you below. Was christened last weekend by Kir, the lovely partner of Crazie, from his ability to part the water in the puddles ahead so the followers didn't get wet feet. You will read about the High Country trip in the members trip reports. A magnificent report by Moggs where he captured the spirit of the weekend so well.

On the nakedness, I don't think Willie's Wit Lit would have that affect on me, but for all that....... promises, promises. LOL

I have included Moses to make sure my posts are noticed to be separate from another poster who calls himself Member - John R (VIC) - totally unrelated to me I assure you and an original name too. Drives a Landie so probaly is naked.

Non-member Nick R with his High Country cattle post could be related though..
Cheers,
Who?

Julie,
can I recommend the road from Morgan to Burra. It cuts off quite a bit of distance. Burra is certainly worth a visit, as is Clare (40 km away).

Thanks for you good wishes - happy travelling to you all too - Marion where do you stay in Mildura - we will be at the Buronga Riverside Park - just over the river - friends own it - really nice casual place -very relaxed - but spotlessly clean - can recommend it highly. And yes, we do go via Burra - always like to use alternate roads to city roads.
happy travels.

Your cheapest stop for fuel is at the SAFF fuel outlet at Paringa then next one at Mambray Creek just before Port Augusta. There is a good bakery at Morgan about half a k past the Burra turnoff and a fantastic one at Wirrabara. It is a nice drive that wayalthough the quickest way is via Spalding, Crystal Brook, Port Pirie etc.
If you are driving through Paringa on Sunday morning around 8.30am (SAtime) we will be in a convoy heading up to Murtho. Drive a 100 series Burgandy colour
