FIY.............Lindsay Bookie and crew including Mike Branch-Smith have just been from Jervois down to Beachcomber along the Hay River (Bookie Track) clearing a lot of scrub on the way leaving a track. Around Lake Caroline lots of bush, the Lake is full but will dry quickly.

Things to be really careful of:
- Fire is real danger, use a hook to remove grass from under the vehicle
- Need a good shade cloth blind to keep the grass seeds out of the radiator.
- the very fine pollen gets through so need a brush to get it out.
- watch out for the critters.
- there are mice and rats out there most of them protected.

G'day Jol

Thanks for the update. We have delayed our trip of course due to the weather and expect to be at Lindsay's on 22 Aug. We are hoping to get a few more participants yet.

I meant to let Lindsay know that Max did a fantastic job of the Bush Tucker tour last year- he is a talented bloke.

Be in touch

You can get permits for the Hay at Mt Dare Homestead now - once paid for, they fax the info to Jol F and he sorts the on-connection with Lindsay's people. Such convenience !

Mt Dare Hotel only does Hay River Permits as an last resort, all permit applications should be sent to Jol Fleming in Alice Springs.
