I am planning a trip down the Hay river about the middle of the year and have read the track notes on this site. However I would be interested on hearing from anybody that has done this trip, especially in relation to:
- Length of time taken
- Difficulty of trip
- General observations

We has a group do it in 2005. The full trip report is in the spring 2005 edition of 4wheelingSA

Length of time: we did it in a comfortable, relaxed 2 weeks from Adelaide to Adelaide. Jervois to Poeppels is about 7 days if you take your time and do the excellent bush tucker trip with Lindsay, and spend a day wandering around Lake Caroline. You can do it in 3 days if you want to miss the scenery :-))

Difficulty: The 4wding is easy when dry. A mudpit when wet. And the dune country south of Madigans Camps requires some navigation skills and a GPS. You cross a few dunes that are the same as any other Simpson dunes - just run low pressures the whole way and you'll be fine.

General Observations: see our trip report.

Many thanks for the info. It was just what I was after. We had planned on taking about a week from Jervois to Poeppels so your comments on the trip have been reassuring. Have downloaded your trip report and will read it tonight.
