G'day,

When it is dry it is a standard dirt road, well formed and smoothish.
Sometimes it is well formed with corrugations and washouts.

You could drive a car down it most times it is open. (with care)

Gooday Andrea

I was uppa datta way a few weeks ago anda Iya reckon demma roads are priddy good when deya are dry - budder you bedder be careful ifa da rain comes - canna get very very slippery and anda bitta boggy - bedder notta drive ona da wet roads - gooda idea to stay inna William Creek hotella, hazza gooda food anda nice a colda beer ! A liddle a tippa for you - a lotta tourists fromma overseas hava accidents onna dirty roads because they are looking atta scenery anda notta where dey are going !

Hope dissa helps and Ima sorry for my Italian

Cheers Gazz

Ps drive safely, slowly and enjoy your stay ( and the Aussie sense of humour )

Hey Jeff

Shouldn't you be out the back doing something more constructive than sitting on the computer ?

Cheers Gazz

Ps - I will be up you way again in 2 months - owe you a cold one !

Thanks Merv

Doesn't look like Alan has a sense of humour !

I occassionally work with some Italians (great blokes) and they have got nearly all the Aussie fellas talking like them all day long - it's hilarious !

If you ask me there is not much to laugh about these days so I do my best to have a laugh and get others to laugh - it's good for you !

Happy Travelling

Gazz

The minute I read it I instantly thought of Nino Cullota's book They're a Wierd Mob.
Jeez that's going back a bit.

On the contrary Gazz, I thought it was very comical and original.

I'm sure Andrea will enjoy it too.



Cheers

No worries Allen

Had you put exclamation marks instead of question marks then I would have thought different ! Interpreting peoples comments / replies on the net / emails etc can be difficult sometimes and I have got myself into strife on numerous occasions on this great site and others for my replies and also for my interpretations of others - people often read into things way different than they were intended ! I have a friend who's entire business runs on emails and replies and he is always complaining about wrong interpretations.

I thought it was funny and as long as Andrea does as well then all is good !

Cheers


Gazz

And everything you said was spot on Gazz! I wonder if I need to explain "spot on" to our Italian friend? If so it means he was correct, if you've driven from Marree to William Creek you can easily drive William Creek to Oodnadatta, but always drive to the exisitng conditions, within your own skill level and stay alert and don't speed. If it rains, you won't be driving anywhere. Oh, and yes the scenery is stunning!
