Cheers

Truckster,


I've got a plot of the trip Geelong back to Geelong from when when I did it with Davez and Phil G, 4 files one for each day. Includes west to east crossing of little Desert. Dave would have this stuff also.You're welcome to them if it's of interest

Revisted Wombat today...BIG HOLES are still there :)

Hey Ray
I remember the trip.. Dave Z came over today for some map stuff, and showed me his plans for the trip, sounds good!

Yea send over what you have would be kewl


As for them holes, how far did you get this time? to the same point I got stuck?

Did you find your way to Trout Trail this time? apparently its blocked off not far down it! so we wouldnt have got out that way specially in the dark!!!!

Should do that day out again some time!

no probs, will send them thru tomorrow.
Saw Trout Track but didn't venture down it. Went along XL which was pretty basic stuff but excellent bush. Ventured down some unnamed track, ruts, bogs and holes all over the place, one hell of a mess in places, things just got worse the further we went so did a 180 and got out. Love to find that hill you snatched me up in the dark and have a look in the daylight.

Diamond...no probs mate, don't know when it will be though. Got innamincka coming up and then the high country in June. Drop me your email address...click on my rig picture then look down the bottomHooroo
