Just got back from 2 nights at Corunna Downs airbase. Had a ball fossicking all over the place. Mate found out the hard way that airing down is the most important thing when travelling on soft sand (see rig pics). Not much out there these days strips are obvious, dispersal revetments are still intact, plenty of concrete footings around but i have no idea what they are for (hospital, barracks)? Great camping spot down in the river bed, plenty of shade and grass. Flies are friendly at the moment out there. Feral cat was disposed of but could not see any other wildlife other than camels (3).
Having troubles uploading pics into my homepage, help?

Yeh, I was having trouble uploading pics today as well.
Looked over Corunna some years ago. Quite an amazing place. The enormously long airstrip was still in pretty good nick then, apart from the occasional bush growing thru the tarmac. Apparently was used as a base for bombing Japanese in Timor. The Japanese never found the base, despite lots of looking.
Would have been a hell-hole in the Pilbara summer.

Re uploading photos, I had trouble with them also until I made them smaller. I used Kodak Easyshare and just used saveas which gives a funcyion to save "best for web"

Hi Geoff,
Yeh, I tried re-sizing them down to 499 pixels max (allowed 500 max, tho it will automatically reduce them anyway) and it still wouldn't work.
Tried again this morning, still no go. Left an email with EO.
