Hello members,
Is anyone else a member of the poidb.com forum?
I registered with them last week and cannot receive my validation code.
I sent emails with no reply.
I tried ringing them but get a "number not available" message.
Luckily there are no fees involved.
Is this a case of another website down the gurgler?
Cheers,
Seagecko.

Not sure what you mean about 'forum as I cannot see one on their site, but they do seem to be having problems. I have managed to access the site by putting /default.asp after the .com (http://www.poidb.com/default.asp)

Hi Great

Great one, thanks.

Yes we did leave a very similar plaque at the Geo Centre, same yellow dropper and same size plaque, but not on the tower.


The technical man that I am.................LOL,..... I placed it at the correct location of the actual Geo Centre, which from memory was around 100 odd metres further to the west of the tower.

Give me a few minutes so I can find some images.



Cheers

Hi Chris

Found them. When you look at the plaques on the tower when you were there, have a look at the tower when we were there and look how the desert changes after a good soaking, very unreal.

Thanks for the reminder of that unreal trip.

Sorry Stephen I blew it, if you zoom in on the picture of the plaque you will see that is the actual plaque you placed at the centre.
I see what you mean about the difference in the landscape, amazing what a bit of rain can do.

Yes it is a great trek and would love to do it again one day, as soon as we finish exploring a few other deserts first.

Hi Chris

Here is another good example of the landscape compared to your picture. As you can see from my images, the sand was powder soft and we had to head north for around a kilometre before we found a dune stable enough to cross back to get back onto the main shot line.

I know what you mean about other Deserts. As we had travelled every possible track in the Simpson, the Geo Trip was my ultimate challenge and we have been back a few more times, we are hooked on the Great Victoria Desert now. It is so different that the Simpson and my perspective, (others will disagree) far more pretty than the Simpson, from vast Spinifex covered plains, Marble Gums, Breakaway Country, far more Aboriginal evidence and the list goes on.

Thanks for comparing your images.



Cheers
