that's of course if I can get to sleep....we're off on Friday afternoon on a wonderful 4wd adventure in oz tour up to the Gulf of Carpentaria, passing through and staying at some wonderful places including Welford NP, Bladensburk NP, Normanton, Burketown, Kingfisher Camp - Bowthorn Station, Lawn Hill NP [Adels Grove], Birdsville, Innamincka, Corner Country and Home. Thanks to Glenn for all his planning over the past 12 months...it's going to be FUN.

My spirit is travelling with you..Lucky you..At Bowthorn,check out the two books Kerry has written..Also the flood level marks painted on the corrugated iron wall of shed jus out from house..Bet the old tractor is still there with a flat tyre..Two huge arrays of solar panels..You have a great rig for the job..Probaly already know..Let tyres down a fair bit on the bad corrugatiopn roads/tracks..The,drive for your rear tyres,not the front..All the puntures we saw up there were thru the rear sidewalls..Two of our crew found that out..One Nissan Patrol we helped had 3 staked sidewalls..All rear..We had to get them to town quick,late in day,as the "Kombi Killer" was up there then,police road blox everywhere. Have fun..RockyOne!MPG:6!

As I read this I am contemplating my return to work after 4 weeks off. Didn't get to travel much while I was off either, family commitments.

The only thing I have to say is, You lucky, lucky ...... Aaaggghhh ggggeeeee I wish I could come.

If you pass through the Hill on your way home call into the Fire Station and look me up. I won't be far away. (Sadly)

Have a great time and keep safe. This is one of the things I love about this forum, if we can't go on a great adventure/holiday you can at least live through you guys.
Catch up with your adventure when you get home.

Thanks Kat,

a good 80 series is a great vehicle, our first cruiser was a 97 80, good luck with your search, and with your trip planning.
