Mate and I are heading to Lake Eyre from Tweed Heads 8/5/09 via Thargomindah, Innamincka, Leigh Creek, William Creek do the fly overs of the Lake then wind our way back via Birdsville. If anyone else is going this way at the same time like to make contact as its our first time out that way. We are not in a rush and want to see highlights on way and enjoy the experience.

Hi Colin

I am heading out from Tamworth on the 3rd May for Carnarvon gorge and back to C'ville, Thargo, and eventually to William Creek & Lake Eyre. From there I am going to Oodnadatta to spend a week in the painted desert. Like you it will be my first trip in that region, so if you want to meet up some where that would be good. I plan to be away for 8 weeks, so I am not in any hurry.

Cheers
Jim

Jim
We are looking at overnighting in Thargo on 10/5 at this stage. Our flight is booked for 14/5 out of William Creek and we will spend 2 or 3 days around William Crk if you email me I will give you our mobile numbers and I should have the satellite phone number later this week when the new SIM card arrives. We will be in the Ford Ranger with Adventure Camper tray top.
Regards
Colin

Colin,

When do you expect to be in Innaminkca? By the looks of your trip plan i think we'll just miss each other .. but keep an eye out for a jimny and a landcruiser and give us a yell if you spot us!
