Hi Hairy
That will freshen up the place. After all, it would not be a Finke Desert Race without a little water? Do you know how fare west the rain has penetrated. It should make the country look good in about a months times.
Keep Dry.

All the Best

Yeah it certainly is. We are there, but didn't stop us sight seeing today. Off to Curtain Springs in the morning. Spoke to a couple this arvo who came up from Marla and said it rained all the way. Had the pleasure of visiting my old school, "Hartley Street School" yesterday and what remains is now controlled by the National Trust. Found mine and my sisters enrolment entries in their records from 1957, along with some emotion stirring photos. Still gobsmacked by it all.

Yeah..bloody great. I'm here too but I want to head west. May not be going anywhere. Came up from Coober Pedy today and it was raining most of the way. Bloody cold as well. Currently enjoying the surrounds of the MacDonald Ranges Van park.

Cheers Mick.

Look forward to hearing on your reports and pictures when you get back.
