Hi Willem,
Sounds like you will beat us by about 10 days. Leave a message for us there. We should be at Geosurveys Hill about the 14th May and allowing another 4 days to get down to The Geo Centre. From the Geo Centre, we are heading out in a south easterly route, then out near Kilpatha Well.

We both will gave some great stories to tell.
Have been in contact with Dave at Mount Dare and he said that the people that have been through the Simpson at the moment are only using a little extra fuel due to the very soft conditions. I thought that with such soft sands, the fuel usage would have been greater.

Make sure that you have more fuel up your sleeve than you had with the Suzuki's!!!

Once again, have a great and safe trip.

When your down our way, do drop in for a chat.

Cheers and all the Best

Stephen

Yep will have 330lts diesel on board from Mt Dare. But am towing trailier along the route, so it all remains to be seen just how well I will do, considering I got 26km/100lt in the Suzuki...lol

You will do it no worries. After all you are no stranger to that country. Don't forget that note at the Geo Centre.

I'm glad our differences of opinion have not led to a loss of friendship.

I have enjoyed our 4wd time together, short as it has been. As has my youngest son.

I really hope Milton is well.

Cheers,

Jim

Just a quick note before I leave.

Milton is having his operation to remove the offending parts on 22 June. He is keeping well in the mean time but I know that he is worried.

Cheers

Hi Willem,

Have a great trip, I am very envious yet again. I have just arrived in Florida for 3 weeks business and the only 4WDriving around here is private areas. While we complain about the degree of restrictions we have in AUS, lets just hope it never gets like it is here in Florida (but with 20 million people in a state not much bigger than Victoria, I suppose some restriction are necessary). Enjoy your wide open spaces.

Cheers

Captain
