Good to see you had a great trip Greendog.

I reckon Arkapeena is a great drive too.

Would love to have got to Melrose.

I've had the chance to see Lee Kernaghan in concert a couple of years ago and it was sensational.

The Flinders Ranges are definitely on our must do list next time in SA. Had a small taste of SA last year, and can't wait to get back to see a lot more.

Hi Truckster
The Flinders is a top spot and Wilpena is also a top spot as well.

Cheers

Stephen

Good to see you had a great time Greendog.

We are heading up there this weekend, but staying at Willow Springs as it is a little more secluded in the bush camping section.
I'm planning to take the "scenic route" on the dirt track from Quorn, through Warrens and Buckaringa Gorges, then back on the bitumen through Hawker and on to Willow Springs for a couple of days R&R.
I'm keen to "coerce" two other couples who are good friends of ours to drive Skytrek.
I think they will enjoy the experience and we will too, even though we've been there before.

Love the Flinders.

Bill.

Hi Chris,

Must have re-opened again.
I rang Willow Springs Station a couple of days ago to get an update of local conditions following considerable rain in the area and was advised that apart from the first section being a little rough in places, all was good.

I give an update after the weekend trip.
