On Sunday we called in at Doomadgee Roadhouse, as we were travelling the Savannah Way. We wanted to meet Joe and Mel (to put faces to the names) but unfortunately they were not about. We waited for about an hour, while we had a cup of coffee in the van and checked the emails, but still no sign of them. I think the staff in the Roadhouse were reluctant to rouse them out as it was still early (about 10am when we finally left).

I am sorry to have missed you Joe!

and yes we did see your posts when we checked e mails on Sunday, man am i sooo dissapointed, and you know what we were up early that sat and the staff said to us that there is some tourists parked out the front waiting for us to open ....
We did another "exploring" trip on Sunday so never replied to you guys...
Allen, it is a "light beer" only community so there aint much happening in the way of partys, i only wish hahaha.

What happened was Mick & Deb (staff) got a call on Friday night about a family member that was very ill (Debs brother) and things were not looking good at all, they were not thinking to well at the time so i dont blame em, sad as they now are leaving us to go back to Brissy and we now have NO STAFF ......

So guess what we NEED some staff, if you have your own accom and want to explore the Gulf and get paid call me :-)

And from now on, if any of you guys are passing RING ME, even on weekends on 0419 866 303, reception is only av so try again if you dont get through the first time .....
Cheers and sorry we missed you guys eh

hey JMK,
yeah we tried to catch up with you as well about 2 weeks ago. but it was on a saturday and the people there said that you always take the weekends off...bugga! i was really looking forward to meeting you. i was travelling with just my son across to darwin via roper bar. the Calvert river was fine, but it was the Robinson that was quite deep. but anyway, we had a great trip but not didnt do to well on the fishing front. we even bought a lure from your shop, but it too didn't help. the best we did was on the limmen river with bait, and even then it was only a couple of sharks. next time i think i will definately bring a tinnie!!
catch you next time,
