Just as a matter of info Topcat . I was talking to some terrerists the other day (in York ) and was told the following . Thay were going to come to the west via the Anne Beadell but were asked not to by the local police . It seems that thay are sick of going out to rescue people . I was told that it was quite rough and thay were using more fuel than thay had antiserpated , and so were running short . Also , sum people were turning around and going back becouse of the rufness . Thay went up to ayres rock and down the great centrel rd . Im not trying to put you off , its only what i was told . So saying , we are off up the Connie Sue on saterday to Warbuton , and back vie the Gunnbarrel . Hope you have a great trip and watch out for crocks and i hope you are going up the telegraph line ( been there , dun that , and going back again in another 4 years (long service) .

Errol,

The eastern end of the Anne Beadell is always badly corrugated. Running lower tyre pressures and taking it easy helps a lot. The latest WEstprint newsletter said the West Aus side of the Anne Beadell was recently graded. Anyway, we're travelling next week, so we'll see who's right!

Have a good trip.

Topkat,

Yep, Sierra 7231. I'll listen out for any Whiskys following behind! We're actually heading north from Nullabor (3rd Aug) via Cook to Vokes Hill Cnr, then west to Laverton, so won't have any current info for the Coober Pedy end. But it would be pretty easy to Mabel Creek and then well corrugated until past Emu. Then heading to Plumridge Lakes and down to Cocklebiddy and home to Adelaide.

Phill . Listen out for Whisky 302 , we,re leaving on the 2nd , going to kal , then onto rawlina and turn north onto the connie sue . Be calling a mate in Perth about 5,30 to 5,45 each night to let him know where we are . We may cross tracks quite close at neail junction . Why go overseas when you can ExplorOz

yes the eastern side is very corrugated but the grader hade been all the way to the WA border so the west is great.
AND there is now a road house on the Anne Beadell!!!!!! Right where the aboriginal business Rd cuts across the track (above the Tjuntjuntjarra Community). Was at Neales recently and met the builders who were retunring to Albany after completing the job. Not sure if you need to book for fuel (and don't have the phone no) but it would be worth following up. We heade south down the Connie Sue so didn't take a look.
What next - they might as well seal it! Len would turn over I suspect.
