Jeff I think you have just given the unsavoury type out there an open invitation to you house. They may know your vehicle/van (as its in your profile) or see it and follow you home and then when your gone they are in. I'd delete this post.

In all seriousness enjoy your trip.

Jeff

I am impressed by your attention to detail. I am sure I could learn something there.

I hope you can relax a bit once you are actually on the road.

Have a great trip.

Thanks Bob

I believe in being prepared so you can imagine my travelling companions consternation when I made them sit through a 3 hour Powerpoint of 230 slides showing all maps, camps and places of interest along the way lol

G'day Jeff M (WA)
Just got back from similar trip, left Perth beginning of April and got back on Friday 19/6. Great trip, We went the inland road through Mt. Magnet, Meeka, Newman and the Karajini National Park and then via Wittenoom to Millstream and Chichester Ranges through to the Coastal Highway. From Derby we did the whole Gibb River Road to Kununurra. Heading up to Darwin we spent some time touring Litchfield National Park, highly recommended, and after leaving Darwin we did Kakadu, down to Pine Creek and on to Daly Waters, great time, get there early as the Caravan Park fills up early.
From there we travelled down via Alice, Woomera, Pt Augusta, Eyre Peninsula, Ceduna and eventually back to Perth. The weather from Tennant Creek to Perth was cold, wet and windy, but still did not dampen the excitement. In our group were two caravans, off-road, and a Winnebago, non off-road. By travelling according to the road conditions and having the Winnie between us and taking road conditions by uhf radio,we had no troubles the whole trip other than the Winnie being bogged in the sand on the exit of the Durack River. Simple extraction and we were on our way.
Have a safe and enjoyable trip.
Regards,
Peter (1)
It doesn't get any better than this!!!
