Hi guys and girls,

For those heading West to Camerons Corner there is a shallow lake (after rain) which shouldn't be crossed. For the second time I've had to assist people in getting back to solid ground.
If this small lake is full, there is a track to the left which will bypass the water.

Secondly, this is the first year I haven't seen a roll over on the whole trip. Sadly after coming back to Melbourne I was informed a friend of a friend was killed yesterday in the NT in a roll over.

For those heading North (particularly first timers) take it easy on dirt roads and tracks and get there in one piece.

Ruth, if you read this post I've passed old Bassel Forrester's and Dish's details onto Snowy Brosnen and Billy Forrester.

Regards
Kim

Met a guy in Alice who'd rolled his Troopie on the Tanami, following some rain. About 30K/H , got into some truck wheel ruts and over he went. They told him not to feel so bad, he was the 6th one that week !

Yes it is Mad Dog.

What catches people out are the posts on either side of the lake - it looks like a natural extention to the road, but not advisable in the wet.
