Here we come. We are off to St George this afternoon to get some stuff organised for Innamincka. I am going to get a load of firewood cut ready to take out to Innamincka, any suggestions as to what size will be needed?? I was thinking lengths about a foot long in various diameters. There will be close to a full 8 x 5 load so I don't think we will run short (especially if Willem is bringing some as well).
I finally changed the fuel filter in Darkie so I will be interested to see how the fuel economy goes for the trip as there was a lot of crap in the old filter and Darkie appears to run smoother now (but that may be wishful thinking LOL).

I am going to go to the winery in St George and get a Condamine Bell of port and possible an RMW pottery boot as well for the raffel/auction.

John T I will see if I can get hold of some horse shoes for you as well. I know that I can get standard shoes but not the Clydesdales ones, does that matter??

Cheers Kev

Kev

I've just been talking to my winery down in the Hunter Valley - have ordered 2 cases of red - thought I'd bring at least 1 case with us to drink (LOL) and perhaps the other for prizes.

Horse shoes should be with me on Monday next week so I was told a few minutes ago. Grab some if you want mate - we may well have to hold elimination heats so will need a few pairs.

I'll see if I can scare up some "rules" for a fishing comp - we will need a few prizes for this - I might ask a couple of the local tackle shops if they'll do a deal for us.

I'll be bringing a bit of firewood with us too - will cut some longish bits that will get strapped to the boat rack on the Trak Shak but will not be doing that until we get to Bourke - the Nissan is going to use heaps of fuel without dragging more weight behind it.

Cheers

PS will be away next 3 days so will check EO Monday night
