How many Guys are heading to Cape York this year. Just doing a survey on how many are traveling up this way. The weather up here is looking good, as the rain has now gone and it looks to be a good year for those traveling this way.

how many gals?

Someone once picked me for using the guy word instead of bloke or some other culturally acceptable term. I tried to explain the changing nature of english but you get that.

hmmm, wish I was coming but looks I will winter in Tassie. Had a great trip last time (and first) up on the cape. Blessed are the memories.

happy times to you.

You're right, it's the only generic term I can think of and use it daily when referring to groups of both gender. The term is "Sheila"

Re David post.

We our best friends who chose to move to Tassie. They bought a place up in the hills near but not too near to hobart. No land line no power grid. They are building a cottage to freeze in.

So we are due to go and visit so we may as well look around while there are not too many tourists around (like us). Still thinking about the options of different travel methods; train plane or tow the camper over from Perth.

By having a quick look in the members trips and gatherings page I reckon at least 12 are intending to get to the Cape this year :)

Cheers Kev

We are planning to have a look at conditions when we get to Cooktown about the 7th May. We hope to be able to go straight up to the top via the main road in a 2WD Ford Transit,. What are our chances?

7th of May is a bit early and there could still be some boggy sections or causways with a bit of water in them depending on the season. Taken at a slow pace a 2WD will make it, be it with a few bumps & scrapes. Not going overloaded & having decent tyres would be important.

It all comes down to the weather we have in April. If the rain comes back in then you may hav a little trouble with some of the river crossings.Plus the Lake field Area is too wet as there is too much water, but if you have a good 4WD and all the recovery gear you should be OK BUT I would not do the Trip in a 2WD in MAY
