Members traveling the Plenty Hwy

Hi All
Are there any members travelling the Plenty Hwy from Boulia to Alice, or vica versa over the period 21st, 22nd & 23rd of June.
We might be able to help each other out with a heads up on road conditions etc.
Cheers
Dave

David,

If you are going in the 4WD in the pic then take a spare overhead camshaft bearing

OK, WHY, have you suffered the same problem, or heard of such a problem being common.
I dont think I have heard any mention of this issue on the forums so how common could it be.
Or are you just Knocking the Terracan.

Hi David

We hope to be doing most of the Plenty the week before that, but there doesn't seem to be anywhere with phone reception where we could contact you in time. What day are you leaving say Boulia (or Alice Springs)?
Cheers, John

Hi John
We will be spending the night of the June 20th or 21st (depending on prior travel) in Boulia, then heading west along the Plenty.

OK, we should be back into phone reception before then. If you want to MM me with a phone number, I'll SMS you with Plenty conditions when we can.
I gather it's usually good driving though, unless there's been rain.
Cheers, John

Hi Guys,

I can let you know conditions via Exploroz when ever you would like to know. E-mail us at ssnorris@live.com

We currently live on Tobermorey and having workers coming every which way regularly plus communicate with the police and other travellers.

Make sure you stop in for nights camp in one of their grassed shady sites or stop by the shop for fuel, cold drinks, snacks or some Plenty Highway Souveniers.

Safe Travels

We will be traveling east from Alice in that week heading for Brisbane for our holidays.
Might catch you somewhere on the trak.

Keep it safe, keep it slow!
