It looks like our travel companions will have had to pull out of our trip of a lifetime, but we are still committed to go. We are looking for anyone who may be interested in doing all or part of our trip with us.

Aprox dates
April 14 to 16 Windorah to Innaminka and the Dig Tree via Arrabury Road
16 to 18 April Innaminka to Camerons Corner via Bore Track
19 to 21 April Stzeleki to Maree
22 April MAree to Lake Eyre
24 April Lake Eyre to Coober Pedy Oodnadatta Track
25 April - 27 April Coober Pedy to Kulgera via Oodnadatta track
28 April- 30 April Kulgera to Finke to Chambers Pillar
30 April to 3 April Chambers Pillar to Dalhousie Springs
5 April to 10 April Simpson via French Line, Rig Road, Knols track etc to Birdsville
As ever desert traveller would know, dates are flexible, but they are there to give you some idea of timing should you wish to just do part/s of the trip.

We are husband and wife, no kids, 1990 Range Rover, trip co-ordinator for a 4wd club.

Cheers

Wish we could come with you but have already made arrangements to be in the Simpson during that time so may see you there. We will be the Troopy pop-top camper with 9 Landrovers. Could be quite a trip for us in our Jappa with 9 Landrovers - hope we don't need a tow from a Landrover. Mind you, we can setup camp in 2 minutes, they all have to put tents up. Who will be having gin/beer time first.

No we live in Townsville QLD.

Still in this day and age of instant communication, shouldn't be a problem where prosective travellers live.
