G'day All

After much planning and purchasing, we are off to the Simpson tomorrow, and i cannot wait. The jack is ready, set and go, it has had the once, twice and third going over, running sat nav on his side of the car, running GPS on her side and a dvd player in the middle to enterain the passenger. We are traveling with member Eric and Jim, so if you see us stop for a chat. The trip is going to go the following route
Melb, Bordertown, port augusta, cobber pedy, oonadatta, dalhousie, mt dare, dalihousie, popels corner and the birdsville, then hopefully innaminka and home.

Everyone have safe journeys as i know many of us are out there traveling during these holidays, return safely home and have awesome trips.

All the best Adam and Razor Girl(figured that should keep some tongues wagging while you're away), regular reports and a couple of pics wouldn't go astray.

Keep it safe and have a ball.

Have a couple of pale ales with Melissa and co at Mt Dare. She may have dropped her little bundle by now (another excuse..... sorry, reason to imbibe).

Have a great and safe trip.

Gee you have it good. Here we are sunning ourselves in Broome and you are off on a trip on the simpson. I hope 9 nights in Cape Leveque and Middle Lagoon will ease our jealousy - leaving Broome tomorrow.

Cheers

Hi Big Kidz,

I have it on reasonable authority it was raining there the other day - in fact 80mm in 2 days. Cool as well - doesn't sound like paradise to me!

Think I'll check it out myself, be there in a couple of months. Suppose it will have dried out by then.

Kind regards

Its gonna be busy out there...

We leave on Saturday too, with a very similar route, except we are heading up via Maree to Oodnadatta and Dalhousie, then across the Simpson to Birdsville, and onto Camerons Corner for the Overlander Forum Gathering. Return trip will take in Flinders Ranges, and the Barossa, then back to Melbourne. We are away 3 weeks in total.

I can't wait...

I'm jealous Adam,

We've got eleven sleeps to go until we do Sydney, Nyngan, Charleville, Windorah, Birdsville, Mt Isa, Lawn Hill, Winton, Carnarvon Gorge, Roma then back down the coast.

You guys will be in Birdsville for the National Gathering won't you? Hope to see you there and have a great trip.

Mike

Am sure you guys will have a great trip. Adam and Kir, hope we will catch up as you head South and we head North but wondering which way you will head back to Innamincka from Birdsville, well it all depends doesn't it.

Any way have a great trip and don't let Eric play his doof doof music every night at 1.30.
Cheers,
Who?
