Me and my better half are heading out to the Simpson in August and were wondering if anyone else is doing the same? Maybe we could meet up and tag-a-long. It's always safer and more interesting with others.

Basic plan is Sydney to Flinders, Oonadatta, Mt Dare, Birdsville, Innaminka, Corner Country and back to Sydney. We are taking a month but will probably be at Mt Dare within 7-10 days. We are leaving Sydney on August 3rd.

If your interested reply here or PM me and we can get in touch.

I personally know of two groups doing almost the same as you.
Each has 9 well equipt 4WDS leaving Flinders Ranges on 17 and 18 Aug finishing in birdsville about 3 weeks later. Seems like there are lots of people out there at that time.

We aren't worrying out no-one else being out there but it would be kind of nice to meet up with someone else going the same way. We'll keep an eye out for the others going east/west though. We are in a white Rodeo with a rooftop tent on the rear.

Has anyone who has been out there before got any advice on what the fly situation is in the Simpson? We did a trip to the Flinder a few years back around Oct/Nov and got driven out of Arkaroola by the flys. We are sorting out a screen room for the Simpson but it would be interesting to now how other got on.
