After an eventful but mostly enjoyable trip across the desert via Gary Junction, we are in Alice, mainly to wait for a bolt we lost from the spring of the F250.

We couldn't get into the CP we favour out of town, so are in town amongst the noise, and could only get unpowered, but in the shade of trees, so computer time will be extremely limited.

Good to hear MH.

I believe you had some company at Well 33.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Hi Gone Bush

Yes, we were lucky we didn't miss them. When re-fuelling, someone suggested we go to the Well to camp - and there they were.

Hi M.H.
Wer'e having dreadful weather here and it's come accross from Perth. Good to here from you. What happened at Well 33? On it's way over here, has this wet ,cold and extremely windy front dropped much rain around the Gary Junction r
oad area? We leave for that area and The Transaustralian access road in August.
Hope the rest of your trip goes well. Take care.
Bye for now Sally

Hi Sally

We met up with some friends of Gone Bush at Well 33 who he had told us about, travelling with a group heading in the opposite direction to us.

Our poor daughter at home looking after the sheep and lambs has had nothing but rain. She can't drive on the paddocks to feed to cold and hungry sheep. The weather we had coming across and since we got here has been perfect. Mild sunny days and cosy cool nights.

Enjoy the trans crossing. Friends of ours have been across twice.

Hi Cobber

We will head north and explore our way to Darwin, then decide where next. I am thinking of the Savannah way into FNQ. What way after that? Who knows.

Friends went through the Great Central Road as far a Sandy Blight Junction a couple of weeks ago, and the GCR had just been graded! The SBJ was rough though.
