Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this , but here goes.

My wife and I are leaving Townsville in the 2nd week of Aug (8th) for six weeks and are travelling the Plenty Hwy & Gary Junction Rd via Alice through to Kunawarritji and on to the Rudall NP. From there we intend to the Karijini NP and then down to Meekatharra, Laverton and on to the Great Central Road, Yulara and back into QLD via the Simpson to Birdsville.
We are experienced outback travellers with and have travelled most of these areas before. Our Veh is a 95 80 series TD with 200 ltr Diesel and 50 lpg internal capacity and HF comms.
We are both in our early 50's and enjoy travelling this great country and would like the company of a like minded couple or others with a capable vehicle and attitude to share the experience with.
Like all plans should be, we are flexible and also don't necessarily need company all the time but there is security & safety in numbers especially when travelling in very remote areas."

G'day Clarkey.

We may cross paths, am leaving Brisbane end of July, Birdsville across Simpson to A/S then Ayers Rock.

It should be 2nd week August then and heading west Docker River and up to Gary Junction and well 33 (Kunawarritji), down CSR a bit, and west on to Newman, Port H, and a stroll down the west coast, have 8 weeks.

I need to be at Newman 3rd week August. 105 series, 290 litres diesel, Tvan, 50's couple, kids left at home this time. :o)

Hi Clarkie, i am also looking for someone to travel across the Simpson with this year. I was planning to leave Townsville on 30th August and head West from Birdsville after the races on 4th September. Like you i am happy to change plans too. I could do the desert from West to East but i want to be in Birdsville for the 1st September. I am mid 50's and have a 2006 Cruiser Wagon and Kimberley Kamper.
Let me know what you think. Maybe we should catch up for a beer, as it looks like we are both in Townsville.
Cheers Brian.
Looking forward to every weekend being a looong weekend
