G day everyone just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My names Brad and I

own a 75 series troopy with the ol faithful 1hz donk and she is set up for long

camping/ fishing trips ect. I love travelling and thought it might be a good idea to

join the forum to get some ideas and advice. Done lots of trips to Eyre Peninsula (

Yalata, coffins, Fowlers ect) and love the Flinders Ranges ( recently camped around

Arkaroola). Went to Tassie early this year also.

Cheers,
Brad

G'day Brad, Welcome aboard! There is a lot to learn here and it sounds like you have a lot to contribute as well!! Michael

P.S. I remember camping at Arkaroola,a fifty mile an hour gale blowing, holding the centre pole of our touring tent for most of the night with a 3 and a 5yo! The dust!!! A long time ago but i can still feel the grit between my teeth! LOL!!

Somewhere you want to explore ? There is no time like the present.

Welcome Brad, I too have a Troopy with 1HZ. Great vehicle. It will go anywhere, and we do.

Lots to learn here, just ask. And opportunity to contribute too.

From your trips it seems you are from SA, my old birth State. Whereabouts?


Cheers
Allan

Hi Brad,

Welcome from us too, another lot of happy Troopy owners - though our Troopy is petrol, but like others has been to lots of places in his 25 years.

Cheers,

Val

Thanks guys, love the 70 series, I was fortinate to get mine with just 150,000ks on the clock (I had my eye out for one for ages). I am originally from whyalla but then lived in border town for about 10yrs, now living in Adelaide. I am hoping next year to do a trip up north, maybe to nhulunbuy via kakudu, east alligator ect. I have a small tinny and have just bought a little 4 stroke honda so I am keen to hook some barra (I love my fishing) anyone done the nhulunbuy before? Any tips, advice on doing that trip? Cheers

Hi Brad, Welcome,
There is a lot of worthwhile things on E.O.
Arkaroola is terrific, we've seen it both wet & dry.
You'd spend 2 life times to everything you want to see in Australia. Do it while you can.
Take care, safe travels. Bye for now Ma.

Thanks for the comments. I am only 25 but I am trying to travel as much as I can. Too true that you need 2 life times to travel Aus! Most of my mates aren't overly interested in travelling long distances so its often just me and the girlfriend but we both love it as much as each other Travelling to remote and secluded places is what makes me feel alive!
