On the road at last - nearly !

I'm off on Thursday to meet Willem in Peterborough then off with him to meet more people along the way and explore west of Alice Springs .

Then off up the Tanami to the Kimberley for a few weeks and a week in Broome with the Boss who is flying over to renew aquaintances . Then she must go back to work to support my camping lifestyle . I think we are goiong to have big problems in the Kimberley with wet and buggered roads .

Then I am off down to Meekatharra to meet Murchison Safaris Tagalong out along the Gunbarrel and up the Eagle Hwy . We will eventually end up at the greatest place in Oz - the Calvert Ranges .

Home across the Nallabor and up through Broken Hill - not looking forward to that drive home .

At the moment I am doing all those last minute jobs like cleaning out the gutters !

I will leave Super Squirrel at home because he might breed up in a N.P.

Bye all ,

Willie .

G'day Willie,

To say that I'm jealous would be a huge understatement. I hope you have a great trip and that the trip is very eventful (no breakdowns intended).

We'll expect some mid trip reports - maybe you can cruise into a telecentre and send us an update. July is a long time to wait for your humour.

Kind regards

Have a great trip Willie,

Wet and buggered roads are not a problem they are the reason we go out there :)

Hope the 'yota handles it all ok :P

Have a good one Willie, am sure you will have fun and won't need a referee with those other guys I know, Bro Willem and Wim. I guess you will all be the Willem, Willie, and Wim show but please don't make it a circus.

It will be fun with all the others in a Secret Men's Business trip.

p.s. How are you guys going to keep up with the stock market?
Cheers,
Who?
John

Willie, I guess it is good to have sold, at least you will have the cash for any eventuality but then you have the cash sitting around doing not much. Just ready for the credit cards. I know super funds all have a need to have invested in something these days and public ones just have too many charges.

Gramps, I reckon we are about right but it will be a fun trip as long as they don't have to go looking for one or the other. My Bro told me they were to meet in the desert with Wim. Have heard about a Wills that was going to do that too but these guys will have radios, phones and GPS to know where they are and their objectives too.

Cheers,
Who?
John

John ,
Sold 80% of my mining explorers and kept all the oil stock . I would never forgive myself if the market had died while I was away and I had not realised the profits on these punters .
I do not think cash is a bad thing to be sitting on at the moment .
Cheers ,
Willie .

Have a great trip Willie.
A couple of tips though, Willem loves donuts but don't let him bring the White Lightning. Medical Help is just too far away to be of any use. Take some of his Prickly Pear topping though, it's a great balming lotion as opposed to the embalming affect of the White Lightning.
Look forward to hearing a decent report at some stage.
Cheers

Des.

Alas the White Lightning has evaporated down numerous hatches.

Will be collecting a bottle of MAMPOER in Alice, which has been specially imported from a place far away. It is around the same 60-70% proof stuff. Will no doubt make us all very talkative......lol

So, Willie you're finally off :)) I can hardly imagine a quiet camp when you and Willem get together. I'm leaving early July and hoping to catch up to him in WA...I'll be the quiet one LOL
Have a great trip. Stay safe and don't get into too much strife.

You bugger, have a great time and don't forget to update us on your travels.

Could you imagine Secret Squirrel crossed with a Ring Tail Possum??
