Just a update on Kakadu and Arnhemland, we haven,t had any rain for 2 weeks, I really believe the dry is here and an early start to the dry season.

Today Cahills Xing opened but it is still about .6, so it is still running quite fast, we watched a guy cross it yesterday while fishing at the xing, he crossed safely but this xing is not to be taken for granted, you can come unstuck quite quickly.

As more of the park and surrounds open I will keep you posted.

Cheers Steve.

Back in the late 70's I was coming back from Smith Point and Murganella. I arrived at the crossing (only single width in those days) and I was behind an International ACCO semi about to cross. He was about 3/4 the way across and I thought "he's too far on the up stream side of the crossing" and at the sametime his front left wheel dropped off the edge, "oh bleep " I thought, but then somehow he managed to get the wheel back up onto the crossing and continue.

G'day Steve,

Thanks for the update and what a nice spot it is too. I know it is almost civilized with tar access etc but it still provides a real outback experience - I've seen some big crocs there. And it is not a place to drop/slide off the causeway.

Did you catch anything?

Kind regards
