Yes agree with you. Should have said my condolences to the family.

Only a few years ago I learnt about Len & Doug, should be more of it in school I recon.

Done a few of their roads to date, Connie Sue, Anne Beadell & part of Gunbarell along the Great Central, also had a tour of Giles Weather Station & named my second sons middle name Giles after the explorer.

What a legacy to leave, great out back roads for us all to enjoy.

Another pioneer in his own right that probably more than 95% of Aussies would have 0 idea of.

very nice Eulogy.

Could you imagine spending a night round the campfire listening to the stories that Doug could have told of the 'old days' while building the roads??? Would have been dawn before anyone moved.. That would almost be a perfect night..
